Nice looker. I am a big big proponent of sleds. They also seem so much safer. I have found that once I made one square, it stayed square. The T-track looks nice. Is there a third knob on the back left? What is it for? Also, do you find the laminate top at all too slippery to hold something in place?
Well Ron, you surely done what this site is supposed to do! Inspired someone-ME. I've worked much too long now with out a crosscut sled and am on my way out to the shop now to construct my own. I certainly do like the stop blocks and the extendable back fence on your design. Ron thanks again for the inspiration and this afternoon will now end the almost 2years of procrastination I've endured. Darn it feels good to know that another need will have been met!
Douglas, the sled is phenolic. Somewhat pricey, but I have used melamine in the past and did not really like the results. Thought that I would give this a shot. Very hard to find though, I got the last piece that the local WoodCraft had.
