Thumbs up Home made shaper sled
Report Post Report This Post!

I have a shaper that is dedicated to making tenons. I needed a sled for it, but not for over $100 each, I may soon need 2 more and thats a lotta scooch for those sleds. So I made my own. I scavanged a peice of 1/4" steel plate off a job site we were demo-ing and I bought a couple of T-handled toggle clamps for about $8 each, along with some 1/4-20 machine screws and that's my total financial investment!

Not pretty but it looks perfectly functional which is far more important.

I always favor functionality over looks. In those terms it's a thing of beauty.
There, feel better?
