Craftsman table saw with the goofy T-slots. I was able to make a crosscut sled for it and just wanted everyone to know that it is possible, it just takes a little patience. I cut all of the grooves to make the T shape slots on the table saw but you could also set up a router table to do it.

I know a lot of people have the very same issue. Perhaps a picture of the specially shaped runners would help a bunch of jocks. Always nice to see someone overcome the obstacles that MFG’s create for us.

Thanks

I just shaved the tabs off mine with a rotary tool.

I thought about doing that but wanted to be able to use my miter gauge that came with it still.

I couldn’t get a good picture of it due to lighting but it’s just an upside down T shape and I didn’t really measure it out, it was a lot of trial and error. I will try again to get a picture when I have time to pull it out into the sunshine.
