This is my simple crosscut sled. It is based off the design from the Wood Whisperer. I calculated how far off it was, somewhere around 0.0018” over a 12” run. I have a Ryobi table saw and the miter slot is a T-track, so the the runners had to be shaped to fit. They came out a little uneven, but they still work. The runners on the miter sled I made later turned out much better.

Any tips/pointers on making the runners for the t-track slots?

Luckily the tracks were just a hair over 3/4” so I just used a 3/4” board and cut it to the right height. After that, I just cut rabbets in it using the table saw. Looking back, it would have been safer/easier to cut a dado in the board while it was large and then just cut off the piece I needed, sort of like making custom molding on the edge of a board.

Good luck.
