Making Adjustable-Fit Miter Bars for a Crosscut Sled

Fifth, after the glue has dried, put one half of the sled base in the appropriate miter slot. For this reason, I thought tip number three made sense and was also a really good idea. Photo 2 shows how the left runner snugs against the miter slot. Constructing the sled in this manner will guarantee that the sled runners ride tightly along the blade side edges of the miter slots allowing for a less than perfect fit if the runners are milled slightly smaller than the slots. Making my own guides from aluminum is MUCH cheaper than buying guides, or making them from exotic woods. At this point the hardboard is simply duplicating the kerf of the sled in providing the zero clearance necessary for a clean cut. Here is the sequence I followed: 1 Drill countersunk holes through the sled base to attach the fences to the sled later in this step. This should reduce any friction and make the sled slide much more smoothly. Second, after determining how much of the sled you want on each side of the blade, cut it in two. Repeat the process for the other half of the sled base. I will be making myself a new sled using your tips. Using it, the blade cuts notabley quieter AND the chips are not nearly as hot, as they bounce off my hands and arms. I wore both safety glasses and my face shield because of the chips being thrown. This excess will be trimmed off to create a perfect zero clearance for that half of the sled. I hope you find these tips helpful if you plan on building a cross-cut sled. The only way to get an accurate cut is to have the rear fence perfectly square at a 90 degree angle to the saw blade. Nice sled! However, eventually you may want to make wider cuts using a dado blade or with the saw blade set for an angle cut. Base the size of your sled on the size of your table saw and your woodworking requirements but not so large that it is difficult to control. It, really, it worthwhile to use the wax. I ran a 3" wide piece of plexiglass between the hi points on my fences.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} Most often a single square is set against the blade and the fence to determine the proper fence position. However, if the runner width swells too much it can become a problem and, as I mentioned, this is where I ran into trouble with my first sled. Tip 1 year ago. If your sled glides over your table saw's surface from day one that's great. First, cut the sled base as square as possible, making the length slightly longer than your final dimension approx. Alternately, you can apply the wax to the top of your saw and miter slots, or to both the sled and saw top if you like. I haven't found need for more than the 8" blade and even a six would do for most things. However, in order to provide the proper results it must be built with care. They did great. Thank you for such an informative post, I have just purchased a table saw and I will be following your instructions the week. After all, even being a few thousandths off will make the difference between slop and nearly impossible to push through the miter slot. Since the purpose of the front fence is to simply help hold the sled together, I opted for a shorter fence. The disadvantage of wood runners is that the wood can swell with changes in humidity making smooth travel through the miter slots difficult or impossible. Rubbing it on to the piece being cut only takes seconds to do and it makes a night and day difference. On a whim, I experimented with packing the teeth with canning wax my wife isn't missing it, yet and I covered the aluminum with it. To build the fences: 1 Rip your plywood and MDF pieces to size 2 Glue them up using clamps 3 When dry, scrap off any glue squeeze out 4 Clean up the the faces and ends if necessary by using a finishing blade and making a fine cut pass on the table saw. I made my first sled last year, following a plan in a popular woodworking magazine. Although I'll be keeping a feature that I added to my current sled. Photo six: Set the sled base in the appropriate miter slot and trim off the excess Photo seven: One half of the sled base after trimming viewed from the output side of the saw. Tip 1: Since most wood movement is with the grain, mill the sled runners with the grain running vertically as shown in the photo. Fourth, pressing the runners firmly against the spacer boards, glue and nail them in place. These cuts will forever change the kerf size of the sled and fence. They were, so I'll leave perfection to those of you with better equipment than mine. I use a push shoe, rather than pathetic push sticks, since the shoes hold down about 11" of the stock at a time and stop any problematic chatter that might, otherwise, result. In any case, since my test cuts look good and fit together well, I'm more than satisfied and confident my new sled will do everything I need it to do. Finally, my fences include additional hardwood support on both the front and rear fences. Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson. This will minimize or eliminate side to side expansion of the runner in the miter slot. Since a zero clearance kerf is necessary to avoid chipout when making any kind of cut, this next tip will dramatically improve the versatility of your sled. Photo three: Press and hold the runner firmly against the MDF spacer. Did you use this instructable in your classroom? This also reduced the total weight of the sled. I've made so many guides, I bought an 8" carbide blade for non-ferrous metals and use it for aluminum and plastic. However, by simply replacing the hardboard when switching back to a regular blade set to zero degrees, you can easily return the sled to zero clearance cutting. However, there is no guarantee that the fence will hold it's shape and remain true over time. There is nothing really wrong with this approach but I think the next tip makes the process all the more foolproof. That research forms the basis for the tips and techniques presented in this instructable. Photo one: A piece of MDF is used as a spacing template. They're a lot meaner than the dust tossed cutting wood. Tip 4: Use two 90 degree drafting triangles, one on each side of the blade, to assure finding the correct position to secure the rear fence. The length of the front and the rear fences can vary depending on the preference of the user. Line up the spacer with the edge of the sled base and clamp it to the base and your workbench. The photos below provide a summary of the steps. After finding the proper position for the fence, strike a reference line on the sled using a very sharp pencil. My rear fence runs the full length of the sled but I noted many examples where the fence was an inch or two shorter on each end of the sled to facilitate angle cuts. Wood runners are more commonly suggested, most likely, because of the moderate cost. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}A cross-cut sled for the table saw is a must have jig for any serious woodworker. These boards will be used to position the runners for mounting to the base. Accuracy and precision are key components to good woodworking. The photos show the process for attaching the runners to the base and trimming the base halves for a perfect zero clearance to the blade. And, while I can't take credit for any of these great ideas, I think you will find the insights of some very talented woodworkers helpful. They are most often made from hardwood such as maple or white oak, however, steel, aluminium or plastic runners are also options. Drive a screw into the hole and remove the clamps. Needless to say my sled didn't pass his test but it was fun to give it a try. I don't have a picture but it's easy enough to envision. More accurate than a miter gauge, it also makes cross-cutting any board easy and safe. The reason I like this method is that, if your fence isn't perfectly straight, your blade is warped or out of alignment on the saw, then getting both triangles square to the fence and blade at the same time isn't going to happen. The wax acts as a lube. Yet, in a matter of months, the maple runners swelled so much that the sled wouldn't slide in the miter slots. That's when my type "A" personality kicked in and I became determined to learn all I could about the ins and outs of building a cross-cut sled that would last. Most plans call for milling the runners for a snug yet smooth sliding fit with no side to side play also called slop. Note: Wax used on the table saw top will not affect your workpieces once the dried wax residue has been buffed off. Allow an hour or two to dry. However it may not and, eventually, it pays to employ this last tip: Tip 6: Apply a light coat of Johnson's paste wax to the sled bottom and runners, then buff when dry. I got good cuts. TIP 2: Build the sled as two separate halves that will be joined together when attaching the fences. Note: I have a moderately priced contractor style table saw and, after this exercise, I came to the conclusion that my blade was just a hair off maybe half a hair. The front and rear fences for the sled are most often made of solid hardwood. Then, with a regular blade, cut a kerf in the hardboard. The runners ride in the two miter slots and guide the sled as the workpiece is pushed past the blade. Before the dedicated blade, I used one of my 60 tooth carbide blades with very little set offset to the teeth. The good news: Tip number two allows some wiggle room when milling the runners to width. If you get yours to within. Since I wasn't about to take the saw apart I decided to finish the sled and see if the results were acceptable. Photo two : Add glue to the runner. The flat stock I bought was about 8" wide and 4' long, so it gave me several guides for things like a log cutting, circle cutting, or [this] cut off sled, Kregg Hole pocket plug sleds bandsaw and so on for around the price of a single guide. Using those dimensions, cut spacer boards to clamp to the appropriate half of the sled base. This step doesn't contain a tip, it merely explains the process for making sure the two sled halves are joined together properly.
