Found this $60 alternative/copy of the Woodpecker coping sled on eBay recently and received it tonight. After a slight modification to accept my profile/backer stick and t-bolts/knobs it’s ready to go.

Somewhat lightweight construction. Wooden grab handles. Melamine top and bottom laminates. Hefty clamp. Pretty much a Woodpecker on a diet...for smaller stiles and rails up to 4.5” wide ( another 1/2” possible with a skinnier backer/profile stick), it will do a fair amount of work.

Looks just like the Rockler one I saw recently. $60 beats the price I paid for my Woodpecker sled but I do like the hold downs on the Woodpecker more. I think it may have a deeper capacity as well. Either should od a great job. I know I really wouldn't want to try making rails and stiles without the sled.
