I made this 17”x24” sled a few weeks ago, but I had not calibrated it since my saw wasn’t aligned yet. If you’re following my table saw rehab (http://lumberjocks.com/topics/39218 ), you know that I got my PALS kit and made the necessary adjustments, so I was ready to square up my sled. Yesterday I saw a nice modification here on LJ so I included it.
dakramer came up with the great modification of adding an adjustable fence (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/60966) to his sled—thanks to for the idea! I had a couple of adjusting nuts in my salvaged hardware, so I included them with my sled upgrade. I ended up with a few playing card shims to square up the adjustable fence. I also added a blade box and painted it red to remind me how valuable my fingers are. In hindsight, I should have painted the blade box before I mounted it to the sled to avoid the obvious overspray.
Thanks for looking.
