Made theses jigs up last week. love the table sled, right side is within 001 square using 5 way square check. Still working on left side. The angle jig was wonderful while building a new 3-D cutting board, which I’ll post tomorrow. The stops really speed things along. The M/T jig allows you to cut a tendon with a table saw and the jig is adjustable with 1/4 -20 bolts. John W. Nixon credit for design.

-- Martin ....always count the number of fingers you have before, and after using the saw.

Looks good. I need to make one like this. Did you shed blood when making it? (pic 6)

“allows you to cut a tendon with a table saw” NO NO NO keep those tendons away from the table saw ;-)

Now that IS a sled! Great job.

I will make a sled like that someday. I’m just setting up shop & need to build lots of shop projects, ie; jigs, shelves, storage, etc…...

I will probably start with a “Down & Dirty” sled and then once the shop has evolved, build me a “Moster Super Sled”.

Thanks for sharing & the motivation!!!
