45 Deg Mitre Sled.

I am trying to buid a accurate 45 deg mitre sled. I recently tried to use mitre saw and it is precise on smaller widths but if I go over 5", there is slight drift on the outside edges and they are sightly off. I think a precision seld will eliminate this. I have a problem finding a true precise 90 deg setup to help in setting the sled up. I have all items and ready to assemble. I am using the 3,4,5 setup to get the 45 deg angle and T-track sliders for mitre slots.

What is the best way to set this up to get the percision I am looking for?

Thanks

Hi SawDog. If you are trying to set up the perfect 90 here is a link to help you.

I actually saw it the other day on this site but can't recall who to give credit.
