Aside from making the sled myself, do you know of a cross cut sled which can be purchased that will actually fit and work with a portable table saw with the dimensions of the Dewalt 745? I thought I had it figured out, knowing the Rockler has a version of their sled downsized specifically for portable table saws, however, in the fine print they mention that the right side of the left miter track must be a certain distance from the left side of the blade, and unfortunately, the Dewalt does not meet their requirements. I contacted the company and they assured me it would not work.
I am assuming that other sleds meant for “regular”/non-portable saws will not work (Incra, Dubby, etc).
If this is the case the only options left I can think of are
2. using a good miter gauge (Incra, Osborne, Kreg, etc) – even though I know this is not the same as using a sled.
Any thoughts/comments on this matter? I would appreciate any feedback. Thank you!
