This is a simple cross cut sled that I made out of some scrap plywood and a pine 2×4 and 1×4, with poplar runners. I needed a sled that could be made quickly, so this is what I came up with. The t-track and stop block with tape measure is a wonderful feature that I didn’t add on my old table saw sled.

Nice simple sled. Stop blocks and tape measure are a great feature.

On that craftsman table saw, are there those tabs in the runners and if so how did you work around them with your runners. Nice sled and thanks.

Chuck, there are NO tabs on this saw, it has normal miter slots (3/4” x 3/8”)
