Rodd, that is a nice rendition of the sled that John posted. I am sure you will find, now that you are using it, to be one of those tools that you just don’t know how you got along before without it.

Had one of them when I had my cabinet shop. Really a handy jig. But mine was not as fancy as yours. I like yours much better. Nice job.

thanks all for your comments. Matt,the cost on this is hard to say. Some of the items I had to buy at woodcraft. I had a good portion of the things that where needed. You never know when a special jig will get that certain project done with a greater ease and tolerance. Just for that reason I keep shop stock items, like knobs and 1/4-20’s. So as far as the cost, a guestamation of maybe $75.00 would be pretty close.

That is a great version of John Dixion’s super sled. I made one also close to his design. I like the idea of micro adjusters. It will works as well as mine. You will love it. Since building mine I hardy ever take it off the saw. I been using it as I am now building a mulit function cabinet for my tablesaw. My super sled is cutting so accurate. Hate I waited so long to build one. May yours bring you many years of great accurate cutting.
