Well, it has taken me a while to finish this project. My shop is in the garage, which sits right underneath my son’s bedroom. Since he goes to bed at about 7:45, I usually get about an hour a day in the shop at most. But I finally got it all done. After mounting the handle, I painted a nice red stripe down the middle, about 2” on either side of the blade – just a little reminder of the danger zone. I made a blade guard to mount on the t-track, to prevent anything from geting kicked into my face by the blade. I am thinking about mounting adjustable sides to the guard as well – I’ll take a look at that tomorrow, I guess. After that I made the miter fences and the stop block and voila! A completed super sled! I can easily push it with one hand. Using the hold downs for small parts means my fingers never have to be anywhere below the top of the fence while cutting. I think I may build another one for my dad!
