I know there are hundreds of sleds on here, many much prettier than mine. But im just excited :) I upgraded to a new table saw this weekend so naturally I have to make a sled. Finally able to make accurate and SAFE crosscuts on panels. I havnt been able do to so for years after selling my last decent saw. Used the 5 cuts method. Its within tolerance. This wont be my final version for this saw, just used some scrap I had laying around. Last picture shows the new saw in front of the old saw :)

I have the same saw, the only problem that I have had is making a zero clearance plate. The adjustment tabs are too close to the surface of the table.
