Good day

I had to cut a few 1/4” strips and I made this setup.

I think that I will make one improvement, stick some sanding paper (#80~120) along the sled so it will grip the workpiece better.

If you noticed, through all my work on the TS, I’m using the Riving Knife, Blade Guard and Push shoe (except some operations like the 45° cuts with a sled).

I fill very relaxed when I don’t see the blade and I can use “High Blade” that is better in my opinion.

The Feeder Rollers and the Hold-down roller makes it even more relaxed operation and it looks like to work on Thicknesser, you push from one side and get the finished product from the other side (I don’t have Planer/Thicknesser).

Looks like a safe thin strip ripping operation.
But I do not see you apply downward pressure onto the board you’re ripping.
Kindly correct me if I missed something.

Thanks for sharing.

Thank you Woodworm

I don’t see any reason to apply downward pressure on the board.

But, my “Feather Rollers” are “Double action”....they push the workpiece firmly to the fence and down to the table top….the other “Hold-down roller”, just keeps the so long sled pressed down and to the fence but it’s not necessary.

Here are a few pictures of my shorter strips sled…

But, when I want to cut really narrow strips, I use the “Vacuum sled”...
