Project Information

Made theses jigs up last week. love the table sled, right side is within 001 square using 5 way square check. Still working on left side. The angle jig was wonderful while building a new 3-D cutting board, which I'll post tomorrow. The stops really speed things along. The M/T jig allows you to cut a tendon with a table saw and the jig is adjustable with 1/4 -20 bolts. John W. Nixon credit for design.

Looks good. I need to make one like this. Did you shed blood when making it? (pic 6)

"allows you to cut a tendon with a table saw" NO NO NO keep those tendons away from the table saw ;-)

Now that IS a sled! Great job.

I will make a sled like that someday. I'm just setting up shop & need to build lots of shop projects, ie; jigs, shelves, storage, etc…...

I will probably start with a "Down & Dirty" sled and then once the shop has evolved, build me a "Moster Super Sled".

Thanks for sharing & the motivation!!!

A very useful set of jigs and they look very well thought out and made.

I used a good piece of 3/4" plywood approx. 20"x20" With the straight edge against the fence and back of the sled. Cut about 1/2" off each side going clockwise. When you get to the 5th cut, measure the distance at the top and bottom of the 1/2 scrap. The difference between the top and bottom of the scrap will tell you how much your off. Here's a link that will explain better http://www.newwoodworker.com/basic/5cut.html

Nice sled. UHMW runners. Adjustable stops. Miter fence. Tenon jig. Hold down clamps. Great build.

One question, why is the left side out? and Right side good? Check that (<.001) GREAT!

Guess my jointing and planing not up to par. Either that or the fence moved on the left side as I tightened the screws. Either way left sides out about .01. I haven't messed with it for a few days, I'll take another look tomorrow.
