Or you can use the 3-4-5 method if you have a triangle that is 3x whatever number you choose on one edge, 4x the same number on the other edge, if the number from 3x to the 4x points and that number is 5x the same number you have square 90% corner. So say you measure up the kerf of your sled 12” from the fence on one edge of the kerf, now measure over 16” from the point of the kerf, and the fence, now the distance between theese two points should be 20” if the fence is square your multiplier would be 4”.

-- If I cut it too short I can scab a piece on, but if it's too long what do I do?
