Good day

I decided to start new post because the other one is very long with many pictures and we have to wait long time till all of them are uploaded from Photobucket.

This idea is good for any sled and also for the Miter gauge (sometimes it’s bothering to install the sled just to cut one or two pieces)

On the last post, I recommended to use the “Rabbeted” stick and I would like to show why.

And….some new idea

Regards
niki

So Niki, does this model supercede the other one? Or, is this just a “stripped down” version of the last one?

Question:

Which one of these do you now recommend? The one on the right?

Hi Tom

Sorry, I’m bad instructor….the one on the right is just to make the stick “transparent”. I used it to show the smaller angle (and hand) required and the width of the workpiece that it can cover that would be difficult to see.

On the picture below you can see how it looks normally from above. I removed the rabbet piece to show the “under the hood”

Please use the “rabbeted” ones with the anti-skid tape, they are not only pressing the workpiece to the fence but also holding it down to the table (or the sled), gripping the workpiece with the anti-skid tape, assuring that nothing will move during the cut and are more safe.

Thanks for clarifying that Niki (on the hold-down stick)!

So, do you now favor the triangle instead of the dowel method?

Thanks again Niki. I love simple/ingenious solutions like this.

Have your say...
