I have a question about safely making 45 degree edge miters.
I made a small table saw sled for normal crosscutting jobs. Most of my projects are small, and I routed a tee-slot for clamps on the sled, so my fingers stay well away from the blade. The sled has helped my accuracy, and it feels a lot safer.
I’m thinking about making a sled in the same fashion to use when I tilt the blade to 45 degrees to make miters, like when making a box. I have a delta contractors saw, with the blade tilting towards the right. Is there any safety issue in using a sled, when the blade is set to 45 degree angle?
