Well I won the west lake ace hardware DIY project of the month for July, they sent me a $300.00 gift card for my prize. So I went & bought me a new table saw that I really needed. Well my old miter sled would not work, so we built a new one. Yes of course I made it out of cedar & it appears to work great. Can’t wait to make some picture frames.

Is that a Craftsman Evolv table saw? It looks like the miter slots aren’t the standard 3/8×3/4 measurement. What did you use for the runners?

I have a question about your table saw. How good of quality cuts do you get out of that. I had recently bought the same one and when i was cutting datos, i dont have a dato blades so i just made one cut then moved it over a little until it was the right width, but all my cuts were at different depths. Also when i was cutting a 2×6, i cut a little more than half way through then flipped it over to cut the rest and i found that my cuts wernt perfectly aligned. So i just wanted to know if you had any similar problems at first and if you did anyting to correct them.

Thanks, Jacob
