Table Saw Jigs #1: A Crosscut / Miter Sled for Craftsman 10" Table Saw With Non-Standard Miter Slots

04-13-2012 03:03 AM by Retsof | 2 comments »

Here’s a link to a video that I made about my new crosscut / miter sled that I built for my Sears Craftsman 10” Table Saw with non-standard miter slots. I hope this helps some others who are looking for a solution to improve the accuracy of cross cuts and miter cuts with similar inadequately equipped table saws. I added the miter cutting features after this video was made, so I will have to update the video or include some new photos at another time. http://youtu.be/0Gr5t...

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...

Jigs and techniques #4: Flexi-Sled Table Saw Sled

11-22-2011 04:30 AM by GregD | 1 comment »

Yet another table saw sled. The idea behind this table saw sled was to provide a lot of flexibility in clamping down the fence and workpieces. The top is 3/4” melamine edge banded with scraps I happened to have handy. On the bottom is a 30 inch Kreg Jig and Fixture Bar. The T tracks on top are cut from 2 48” lengths. The fence is a Rockler router table fence that I found on sale a year or so ago. I had to shim it with Scotch Tape on the bottom to square the face to ...

Bowling Alley Workbench #10: The Top #2: Flat and Shine

07-26-2009 05:50 AM by PurpLev | 17 comments »

I had some good progress on the top today. it actually started a couple of days ago when I went ahead, cleaned up the buffer strip, and main top, and glued them up together, I also milled the end cap part (which is on top of the clamps in the photo): I also ground down one of the corner of the Lee-Valley Tailvise Nut so that I’ll be able to install the vise higher up and the nut will have less interference with the table top: I’m not a machinist, nor work with metal much (al...

Beads Box #6: Incra Style Box Joint Jig/Sled for the Table Saw (998SE)

12-31-2010 02:15 AM by PurpLev | 5 comments »

While waiting for glue to dry I tackled the large drawer that will be faced with the mahogany/maple-stripe front. After the last project where I used dovetails for all the small drawer I wisened up (is that a word?!?) and went with box joint. My box joint jig is based on my Incra 998SE Miter gauge . The 1000SE comes with the flip stop which is very useful with 2 built in stops, and a micro adjustment which I use to sneak up to a perfect box joint fit. For added stability I also use the...

Works for me #13: Tapered Leg Jig

09-01-2011 06:27 PM by Dave Owen | 6 comments »

A couple of years ago I made a small, adjustable angle jig for my bandsaw. That jig is shown below and described in my blog “Works for me – #5”. I’ve found that jig so useful I decided to make a similar, but larger, version for my table saw...This new jig pictured below works for making tapered legs, angle cuts on flat stock, trimming to a particular grain pattern, or for removing bark or other bad edges, as shown in the photos below...The photo above shows the jig positioned in the m...

MDB #4: The Age of the Machines - Final milling and profiling

08-02-2010 03:43 PM by PurpLev | 14 comments »

Disclaimer: This blog follows my Magen David Board that is already finished and posted here Once everything was glued up into a single slab, it was time to plane it flat and parallel. one of the strips I jointed happen (don’t ask me how…lol) to be jointed off square, throwing the last 4-5 strips in the glueup off flat (mostly flat). I was tired at this point, and just figured I’m not going to rejoint it, but will pay the price and plane it all down at the cost of having a...

Crosscut Sled from ShopNotes #99

04-05-2012 03:43 AM by Joe Lyddon | 2 comments »

I started out making the Crosscut Sled as in ShopNotes Vol.17, #99… Page 24. I was doing OK, except that the one in the magazine was made for a Right Tilt Blade…... Mine is a Left Tilt; therefore, I dropped many of the features that I liked and it resulted in more of a straight vanilla Sled. It does have an extension that can be added for longer material… Here are the pictures taken…

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...
