I am dying to raise the blade through the jig and see how close I am to a perfect mitre. I made a 90 degree crosscut sled a few weeks ago and use it all the time. Figured this would be helpful. If you have never made a sled , do it! You will not regret it.

Interesting. I am keen on making something like that as well for my wife’s painting frames. Please let us know how it works out.

Looks good . You should make the cut before making the angle. this way all you need to do is move the second part of the 90 degree fence.

Nice, I use a similar one as a jig for my radial arm saw. I also made one for 67.5 degrees.

Thanks for all the great feedback! I considered many different options for the construction of it but wanted to make sure it was true and not overly compicated. I deceided to use single geometry and measuring out the dimensions and laying it out with a carpenters square. I have not yet plunged the blade through the deck but excited to see how close I came. I reviewed plans online and observed a 12 different ways to create it!

I built one myself a few months ago. These things are great.

Have your say...
