hi all
this is my version of the john nixon supersled.
i already had the sled built a while ago, but when i saw his video of his sled i thought i would add a few things to it as he had done, etc; stop blocks, mitre guides and the tenon jig that works with it.
its nowhere near as good as his one, but the price of making it suited me fine =£0, all done from scrap and some pallets.
the actual sled is made from the side of a filing cabinet that i was given.

hope it gives you some ideas for your sled.

I liked my simple sled …. until now :-) Nice job!
What did you make the fences out of? Is that 3/4 thick material?
