After watching so many of the videos and seeing how well a table saw sled worked for others, I have wanted one. But, to my dismay, my old Skill table saw had weird miter slots. But my cuts were always off causing me so much frustration that I was ready to junk the saw after calling it numerous four letter names. I was almost ready to give up and I was looking on Steve Ramsey’s site and saw that someone else had the same problem.
So I took their advise and cut my runners out of hard maple and then used my router table to cut out for the overhangs on the miter slots. Then using Steve Ramsey’s pattern I finally have a table saw sled. I could not be happier with my cuts now. They are true and square! Who would have thought that this piece of cheap saw could ever work right! Everyone was right. A sled can and does make all the difference. No matter how expensive a saw I purchase next, a sled will always find its way on it. Heck someday I might even be a real woodworker!
