I have recently needed to put lots of straight edges on curved and angled parts. I know, I should cut all my 90 degree cuts before I cut any curves or angles, but sometimes that isn’t possible. It made me think of a sled concept that I never remember seeing and was wondering if any of y’all had seen anything like it.
The idea is this: A tablesaw sled with no fences protruding above the sled base (which I suppose would mean a single runner is the only option) with hold down tracks running different ways to allow clamping of a piece at any angle to the blade no matter the shape of the piece. Hopefully that makes sense. Any of you ever seen anything like that? Or built any thing like that? Also, if a long and accurate runner was used, do you think the single runner could hold the sled completely steady during use (my extension table prohibits me from using the wing edge as a reference surface)?
