If money is not an issue, the Incra miter bars are probably a good idea. I might have bought those myself if I was aware of them at the time I built the main structure. Plopping the sled onto the bars with superglue on them was a Nicki trick. I still had to do a little adjustment, but none for months now, and the sled does get used with some regularity.

Again, make sure what you want to do with it, there are a lot of designs out there, and this thread makes that very obvious. I needed a large sled, because small crosscut is done on the RAS in my shop. But I cut a whole pile of identical small triangle shaped pieces with a jig made from a couple of scaps of wood afixed to the sled with holddowns.

I bet there are a thousand different sled designs out there, or more. And each probably has its peculiar advantages.
