Thank you for your kind comments

The “rip hold down” can accommodate stock of any thickness depends on your TS limitations…

For example, if the maximum height of your blade is 3¾” and, the sled is of ¾” material, the rip fence can accommodate stock up to 3”...of course you shall have to choose an “hold down support” (the piece with the 2 dowels that clicks to the sled) to conform this thickness.

Please have a look at the “Part I ~ Part VI” how I made and set the height of this support.

Also, don’t forget that thicker than the blade height (say 5” thick stock), can be cut (resaw) in two passes…after the first pass, you turn it upside-down and cut again…

the “Kuntz” (trick – German) of this sled is that you don’t have to make a new or special sled….the “Rip hold down is just a matter of drilling two holes in an existing sled and “clicking” it in…oh yes, I forgot the stops but they are also very easy to “Add-on”...please have a look at the previous parts to see how I made them.
