Here are 2 new crosscut sleds for my new TS. One is your standard small sled for everyday use, and the other is a dado sled for an upcoming project.

Both of these sled are based on the Wood Whisperers design. I also used the 5 cut method to assure it was square. I got both to 1/64” over 60 inches. That equals out to about .003 over 15 inches. As Mark said, “Good ‘Nuff”.

Thanks for looking.

Here is a link to the the Wood Whisperer. I learned how to square it from his video.

Half of his video is how to use it and how to square it up.

They are called feeler gauges and can be purchased at any auto supply or some hardware stores

I like William Ng’s video better. It’s a little long, but everything is very well explained. I understood the 5 cut method well enough I can now explain it to someone else. (mostly).

I have one I built using the William Ng method, I had not used it for a while but had to drag it out just today, worked like a champ.

I wish I would have built it sooner. I find I am using it all the time.
