Uggh such a frustrating process when you’re new at this stuff. I made this for a TS3650 I picked up off CL for $100. After 3 tries I finally made a useful sled….the others were disasters and scary haha. Best fence accuracy I could get to was .002 with the 5 cut method – then came tears of joy!!
I made 2 stops cause they seem to work well as hold downs. Runners had to be sanded for about an hour to slide at but there was no play once complete. Used poplar for the fence and birch ply for the base. I need more tools really tired of crooked wood from HD!!
Ive made nothing but jigs with my tools just so I could get to know them and yet I’m still scared of my table saw – missing the blade guard and has no splitter or riving knife mechanism. I experience kickback for the first time from a 1/4” piece of hard plywood. Had it hit me any lower my wife wouldve left me if you know what I mean. Bruise lasted 2 weeks haha.
I need to make a zero clearance insert for the saw but don’t have a bandsaw….any advice to get the correct thickness would be welcomed!!
Thanks to all the jocks for all of their posts I’m getting better at this….I absolute love it so far.
