My 1/4 is MDF a more stiffer product…Not sure why mine doesn't -I am staring at it and I see the plywood bending
Mine works fine. Not sure what you’re doing wrong? I made cabinet doors for manual years without any problems.You who are saying 1/4" plywood will withstand toggle clamp force. Have you checked your base straightness after clamping a piece down? My old coping sled was 1/2" mdf and it couldn't take the slightest toggle clamp force without bending.
I had one, never again..Hmmm I think that buying a bit collet extender will give me more flexibility in building future jigs
Your guessing. I show pictures because it’s a fact. Not a guess. i don’t know what your doing wrong.No need to try, it will bend. Check this review (link in end of post) of different commercial coping sleds and their comments about if it bends under load. Just as I mentioned earlier they also see bending problems with 1/2" mdf, twice the thickness of 1/4". Phenolic or aluminium is your base material if you want to go thin, but even with those materials there is no commercial sled made as thin as 1/4". Router-Table Accessories
