Bought the Griz clone of the Lyon. Could not find a real one that was not worn out. It took a lot of fiddling, but eventually I got it dead on. I use it for picture frames. It has it’s limits, especially when trying to get that last 1/128th or so. But 1000 times better than the freaking miter saw! I wil see when I get the new TS set up if I can do better on a sled.

I suspect a real one would have less play in the ways, but the only two I have come across were obviously worn out. I also think some sort of clamping would help the last transparent shave.

Only done my blades once. Used paper and a glass plate. I might make a jig.
