Newly built resaw sled after looking at Gary Fixler's sled and video this is the one I thought would be a great fit for what I was looking for.
Bandsaw 14” Grizzly GO555P
3/4” and 1/2” maple ply was used as it was what I have left over from a cabinet job I did, The measurements are Base 22 1/2” long x 15” wide, Sled is 20” long x 10” wide, Fence is 20” Long x 10 1/2” High, I spaced the drill holes in the fence 1/2” apart.
I purchased a single 24” T Track along with two feed through knobs for a 1/4 20 bolt.
The last picture shows the first cut, as for as drift, None, I resolved that by making sure the blade gullet was centered on the top wheel, tension was correct and kept a slow steady feed rate, the blade is a newly purchased 1/2” 3 tpi timberwolf.
Wood on photo is Redbud still green.
See Blog for full details.
Thanks for looking
