I just learned that on TS, there is left tilt like what I have and a right tilt. What are the pros and cons to either? And what is most common?
I made a crosscut sled that its characteristics are for a right tilt. There is a sliding base seperate from the fixed base. The sliding base works with adjusting blocks – one on the front fence and one on the rear that have slot to tighten lock knobs to accomadate different width blades such as a dado. With a standard blade there is a zero clearance with the main sliding base when running down the miter slot. Which is the way it should be. The problem is if I add a dado, it will remove a portion of the main base. And actually this makes the sliding base non funtional. I guess making a mirror image of another sled would mean I cut from the left instead of the right. Or I just keep the one I made. Disable the sliding base and not use a dado. What other thoughts are there.
