Multipurpose Table Saw Sled

Make incredibly accurate crosscuts and miters, and even cut tenons with ease, all using this precision shop-built system.

Here’s a great way to increase the cutting performance of any table saw. Just replace the undersized miter gauge with this integrated, multi-function system. You can make one to fit your saw, and all you need is a bit of plywood, a handful of hardware and a weekend’s worth of shop time. The heart of the system is a plywood sled that supports your workpiece as you cut. The sled rides in the miter gauge slot, and can be used on the left or right side of the blade. In either case, the edge of the sled hugs tight against the saw blade, so aligning your cut line is automatic. To achieve this tight tolerance, you need to custom-fit the sled to your saw, but we’ll make that easy. The sled is equipped with rows of T-nuts that accept an adjustable fence system for making accurate crosscuts and miters, plus hold-downs to secure your stock. You can even build and attach an optional tenon jig.
