Apologies if these questions have been asked and answered elsehwere.
Upgraded my TS to a Ridgid 3650, just a night and day difference !, what a shocker :-)
Anyway, am in the process of constructing a crisscut sled, using John Nixon’s design from his website
It really is very cool that all you guys are so willing to share, blog, create tutorials etc.., but I digress….
So I have a couple of questions I would appreciate some input on;
The design calls for the back fence to extend, as it were, to the left.
Is that just a personal preference ? Is it because of blade tilt direction ?
Are there any gotcha’s I should consider before switching the fence to extend right ?
Secondly, the back fence is made from laminating 2 7/8” boards together (where does one get those ? but thats a whole different journey, finding a good supplier)
I laminated 2 3/4” pieces of Red Oak to be the back fence and have now realized that the Kreg Top Trak I purchased is actually built for a single 3/4” span.
So what I’m thinking is that I will cut a rabbet to allow the track to be mounted and adjust the handle etc.. to ensure everything clears everything
Any obvious issues with that approach ?
Thanks in advance.
