This crosscut sled is a versatile sled that features Kreg Top Trak, Extension fence and T-Track.

I designed this fence to fit my Delta 36-725 but the dimensions can be adjusted for any table saw.

DEEEP it is. Unless you just moved it to take pics, you should be getting an outfeed table behind that saw. Even holding a long or wide board is trouble once it’s all “back there.” Something as large as that sled would be Herculean, plus add whatever weight you have in it. Of course I probably don’t need to mention as you can’t have a guard on with a sled, is if it does flip off the backside, that has you leaning way forward, over a spinning, and totally unguarded blade.

So nice sled, becomes an ugly story. Please don’t let that story become real.

Trial this. If you have your slot cut, with the power off slide that sled forward to the point you would have made a cut all the way through whatever was on it. Now look how far forward that puppy is, More off than on. With an outfeed it would be well supported, no problemo.

Thanks for all that info! I actually have an out-feed table with slots run in it for the miter bars.

I use it all the time without the out-feed table and have had no issues. I think all you said makes sense in theory but when you actually use it it works perfect.
