i have a ryobi bt 3000 table saw ,and i need to make a sled for it , the problem i have is that it does not have the miter groves in it , i saw somewhere that there is a plate that is available with miter groves in it that mountes to either side of the main top of the table , then you have a table top with miter groves, now does anyone have any idea where i can purchase these plates, i think i saw them on e-bay
thanks

I don’t know about the plates but I do have a solution for you. I have one of these saws and can’t stand it but… there is a work around for the miter slot. If you slide the sliding table away from the main table just the right amount you can use that gap between as a faux miter slot. When you want to use your sled just slide the table out a bit, put your sled in place and lock the table close to the runner. Then you effectively have a miter groove. Also most people don’t have a clue what this saw is so pics do your post great justice :)

I’ve owned a BT3000 and have had students that have wanted to use a sled on their BT3000 ,we added a piece of 3/4 melamine to the top with 3/8 ” deep miter track metal “T” track put into it for the to guide the sled .

There’s a website dedicated to these saws called BT3Central.com.... loads of info about the saw, and a friendly group.
