My sled overhangs the left side of my TS by about 2”. On the underside there, I have a stop block fastened to the sled and there is a stop block mounted on the edge of the saw table. When my cut is finished, the stop blocks hit together stopping my sled from moving any farther forward. On the sled there is also an overhang to cover the blade as it enters the final inches of the cut. The blade stays covered. I also built the back cross piece high enough that my fingers are safely away. Just some ideas to consider if you should build your own.
