Why I Designed It:
I needed a crosscut sled to replace the ones that I keep ruining because I turn them into dado sleds every time a have to cut a quick dado. Doing this makes the saw blade opening in the bottom of the sled too wide to be zero clearance for the sawblade. And just as bad is when I have to switch sawblades out for one with a thin kerf.
I needed a way to make my cross cut sled have change-able zero clearance inserts for each different thing that I use. I figured if my table saw can have an insert plate, so can my cross-cut sled!
In addition, I wanted to have a miter sled. I don't like pulling out my Incra Miter 5000 each time I want to make a 45 degree cut, like for a picture frame. So I designed a system that allows for absolutely perfect miters. I used the rules of geometry to cut and make a PERFECT 45-45-90 triangle. Anyone can do it, and I show you how. After I made that, I cut a perfect picture frame in less than 2 minutes.
And I not only cut dados with my dado blade, this Table saw sled combined with my dado blade makes a perfect tenoning jig, with flawless shoulders. I will show you exactly how to accomplish that with this sled. I hope you enjoy.
