Well here is a new project and it got me back in the shop but slowly does it .
I wanted to address some issues and I think I accomplished my goal .
I made a video that you can watch on YOU TUBE and I think it will explain the projct better then I could here in words.

Please let me know what you think of this prototype . .I will try to post a build video sometime soon That will have some additional features .
Thanks Klaus / Kiefer

Neat concept of the “sliding dovetail”.

Brilliant once again Klaus. I may have to make one. My last Kiefer style sled went with my ShopSmith when we left Green Valley. It was great and this one looks even better!
Good to see you again.

Appears to be another very functional saw accessory! Long time no post, thought you had finally decided to move to the Island, move next door to Paul? Whenever you come up to Redmonton give me a call:)

Great idea on that sled. Klaus. I made a couple of sleds that cut 90, 60 and 45 and the center piece is just about gone. I did a 72 degree on one of them for a pentagon and that took it out. I like the way you keyed in the inserts. I might make some screw in pieces for the one that lost the center. A sled like that is mighty useful.

thanks for sharing the video!!

Cheers, Jim

Nice sled. I like the little detail on the finger saver box on the back of the sled.

Klaus, that sled looks versatile enough to buy. A genius at work. Those sliding dovetail guides are some great thinking. Nice video too.

Nicely engineered so a whole new sled isn’t necessary. Where did you get HDF?

I love this sled.

Unfortunately, I’m confused on a couple of issues…

You have pins coming up from the base, and the inserts slide on those pins. I don’t understand (after several viewings) what holds the inserts in

Regarding the fence, and aligning it, I love the idea of … I think, using what I’ve always called barrel nuts

Is this what you used (I wish I’d thought of it). Doesn’t the bolt vibrate loose?

I’m sorry if I’m a little slow, and really appreciate your designs

Have your say...
