The Super Sled #3: Mitering Fence

04-06-2009 02:12 AM by John Nixon | 7 comments »

I just completed the latest video in the Super Sled series – the Miter Fence. Cut accurate and reproducible miters with this shop made miter fence designed for use with the Super Sled. Using a stop block for repeatable cuts allows you to get the exact same size pieces each and every time you miter. This versatile setup can cut a wide range of angles safely and accurately on the table saw. The Miter Fence video for the Super Sled series shows the construction of the fence and two dif...

The Super Sled #1: Shop Built Tenon Jig

03-23-2009 12:09 PM by John Nixon | 8 comments »

I finished the latest accessory for the Super Sled – the Tenon Jig. It’s pretty darn easy to build. Given the cost of commercial tenon jigs, you could easily make this one with the scrap plywood you have laying around. The Tenon Jig’s features include: - micro adjustment feature- built in scale- unique leveling system For PDF measured drawing of the Super Sled and the Tenon Jig, go to the project page and click on the “Browse This Projects Files” link towards the top:h...

Finished my Table Saw Jigs

11-21-2007 02:57 AM by Sgt_Lobo | 8 comments »

Alright, I’m ready to do some real woodwork now. I finally finished my last two table saw jigs. This time I made a miter sled and a key slot jig (spline jig?). I will make more jigs/sleds as I need them, but I think that the three I’ve made recently should be a good start with my new TS. So, heres a couple of pictures, and as always comments and suggestions are welcome (I came here to learn).

New Crosscut Sled

11-18-2007 07:18 AM by Sgt_Lobo | 9 comments »

Well, if you all have been following my blogs, you’d know that I recently purchased a new table saw. Being that this is my first table saw, I want to ensure that I am using it as efficiently and as safely as possible. So after doing a good bit of research I decided to make a few jigs to improve my accuracy with my new saw. The first jig I made today is the crosscut sled. Shortly I will be making a miter sled and a jig for cutting key slots on boxes. So without further adieu, here i...

I haven't died ...

08-29-2007 07:57 PM by Obi | 10 comments »

Been busy making all sorts of things, and as they get finished I’ll post them. Recently I realized that my sled was 1/16th inch out of square. Thinking that it was the blade i made sure it was perfectly square to the fence. After making sure the fence was quare, i measured the sled and realized that 1/16th of an inch can make a horrific difference on how things glue up. So i went to work on a new sled. The old sled (posted) was a beginners sled, and needed improvement. No wonder I can m...

Table Saw Sled

07-18-2007 05:18 PM by che | 5 comments »

The home renovations are nearing an end (for now) and I am making some Victorian style base boards to replace the ones which were torn up during the renovations. More info on the base boards when they are installed. I need to scarf a couple of boards together for the longer walls and miter all the ends. The stock miter gauge worked fine for the smaller pieces but wasn’t up to the task when I tried to cut the ends of the 8’ long 1×10’s; too much torque. A crosscut sled was clearly nee...

Tools #3: Incra Mitre Express / Incra 1000SE Mitre Gauge - VIDEO

06-02-2007 05:13 AM by mot | 12 comments »

I wanted to add to the mitre gauge posts. Wayne posted a photo tour of the Jessem System, and David posted initial impressions of the Kreg System. The incra 1000SE is seen here in the Incra Miter Express sled. Both are available at Woodpeck.com You can see the kerf where the mitre sled straddles the blade in the tablesaw allowing for the cutoff piece to be coplanar with the workpiece. This decreases the chance of the saw flinging the cutoff piece back. The Incra guage is adjutab...
