This is the second sled with adjustable fences I build for my new/used table saw .
Again it is build on 3/8” 8mm high density mdf much harder and stronger the regular mdf.
There is only one runner and i added a 6” piece of metal in the centre to fit into the T slot ,
this is meant to keep the sled from tipping of the rear of the saw.
The rotating mitre fence table is made from Baltic birch and the adjustable fences are mahagony.
The fences form a perfect 90 deg. angle and the table can be rotated to accomplish different angles as seen in
pic 6 where sides and top and bottom rail are different width.
The stop blocks have a 3/4 dowel glue to them to give a bearing point to the cut mitred end and to prevent damage to the mitre tip.
All cuts for the short pieces are made on one fence side and the long pieces on the other fence side .
For a standard 90 /45 deg mitre i align the fence table with a very accurate square as seen in pic 3 rather then using the alignment mark which is only for rough adjustment. ( I always disconnect the saw from power when making adjustments !)e the original guard and splitter removed for this operation .The safety guard which is attached to the non sliding table still needs improvements but seems to keep the offcuts away from the rear of the saw blade.
The guard should guard the left side of the blade and I will post further improvements as I build ,the guard is my main concern ! Safety Safety Safety !!!!!!!!!

That’s a very unique jig that seems to be very useful as evidenced by the PERFECT miters. Great job on this!

Fantastic jig. The miter stop dowels are genius. I wish I could get 45’ cuts that perfect on anything.

Wow !! Very impressive. I purchased a miter sled and used it for the first time yesterday and now I see your sled….&%$@ As someone else said earlier….I wish I could make miter cuts that appear perfect on anything. IT is a testament to your skill. Thanks for posting. It makes me want to hone my skills even more!
