1 & 2. My table saw sled. Nothing fancy, but I’m really happy with it. I glued on a paper measuring tape from the local hardware store. I later added the movable stop block. I also replace the struts with a strip of clear plastic, since it was strong enough as it is and the plastic makes me feel a bit more secure. The plastic is also removable, so I can try to make box-joints someday.

3. Chisel rack to replace the box the were in before. I tend to use them a lot more now.

4, 5 & 6. My zero clearance scrollsaw insert plate. Comes in really handy when sawing prywood. A lot less tearout. I made it of some one-side laminated hardboard. Just saw the round shape; place it upside down, then use a chisel to make it the exact height it needs to be (picture 6). Not extremely durable, but I can make a new one in under 5 minutes.

And of course; safety 4th :-)

Nice looking additions to the shop.

And I like that Hegner Scrollsaw…I have a 22” Hegner also, and its a great saw.

I have an older Hegner 18, and it is a great saw :)

I like the chisel rack, might have to use something like that in my shop cabinet build I’m planning.

Those are some nice shop upgrades, in particular the CC sled. Looks like it is well built and many safety features, always a plus ! I use a CC sled much like Yours and it is one of the most used shop made fixtures in My shop. Once again nice work and stay safe !

@Gshepherd You are right about that. I recently found another chisel laying hidden somewhere. So I’m already one space short. :-)
Another lesson learned. On the other hand, I can just make a second one, and have 14 spaces left :-P

We’re the only ones that can make what we do in our “shops” easier through endless upgrades. Looks like you’re doing a fine job of it! Oh, when you’re done over there, how about coming over and give me a hand on mine?
