Ike, this is a nice sled that you built. You did a good interpretation of John Nixon’s design. Are you going to add the miter accessories as well?

One suggestion I would have is to add a blade guard block to the rear fence just for safety’s sake.

Really really really do not need to operate that sled with out a piece of wood at the back of the sled where the blade exits. You could easily get hurt there.

Nice looking sled… I have to agree with Dudley about cleaning up your shop a little… It is always nice though to see someone with a messier shop than mine… LOL… Always keep safety in mind while working… I can’t remember which of the thousand magazines I read it in, but 5 minutes before starting any work in the shop is best spent putting tools away… Keeps things tidy and safe…

I’ll tell you where I got the spikes if you make me one of these sleds. That’s got to be one of the best sleds I’ve ever seen. Nice work!
