I made my table saw sled back in 2012 ( and it has served me well. This weekend I added several more accessories I have seen an use for.

This is the original stop that is the most used.

This stop is used for long objects.

This stop helps keep small pieces parallel with blade.

New – Inspired by Bricofleur ( this is my version of his hold down lever. I have always felt uncomfortable using my hand to hold a small piece during a cut and disliked the time it took to set up a clamp. This seems to solve both issues and is easily removed by loosening the left side knob which also allows changing the distance the hold down foot is from the blade. The hold down bolt is a spare washing machine leveling foot and can easily be adjusted for different thickness pieces. With my palm on the top of the back of the sled I can easily reach over and put needed pressure on the lever to hold a piece being cut secure.

New – This L shaped stop was made to reach under the hold down lever.

New – This arm is my attempt to ease clamping a larger object where the lever just won’t work. There is sand paper on bottom of the end designed to hold the object. The other end has a hole to slide over the bolt held in the riser. I’ve made a couple more blocks with holes to raise the arm for thicker objects. I’m thinking of routing a slot in the arm to replace the aluminum clamp with a bolt and knob.

New – This stop allows me to align longer objects parallel to blade. After it was made I made a cut along the left edge to make that edge parallel to blade. The 2 holes are to hang it up when not in use.

Eager to hear your comments, suggestions and criticisms. Do you have other ideas?

I really like that last one. I was trying to figure out how to fine tune the width of some 4” long pieces of wood that I am going to use to make a cutting board. I think that I will copy your jig and add a clamp to the top of it so I don’t cut my fingers off.

Where do you store everything, including sled when not in use?

Trevor – Great question. I’m working that out. with the recent additions. My shop is in the basement and the area above the saw is open and several items are hung on the rafters. The long one in the last photo has the 2 holes just for that purpose. Small ones are laid on the right rear of the sled. When the sled needs to be removed, I stand it on end under the saws extension wing. I suppose a few more holes in accessories and nails in rafters are in the future.
