I have a Kreg bench top router table. I have a part (can't remember the name!) that slides in the t-track. It is drilled and tapped in several places. Question- what is the best way to build it to make 90 degree passes on the table? Can it be adapted in some way for 45 degrees also? Thanks.
Table works great for long passes but I need something for the short passes over the router.
Have a Groz precision square if that helps.

Could you explain exactly what you are trying to do. I think it would help answer your question better.

It sounds to me you're talking about a right angle sled but a square push block against your fence is easier. If you watch Marc Sommerfeld's you tube videos you'll see him using a push block for doing the profile on the ends of cabinet door rails.

Sounds like a piece of milled bar stock probably 1/4"X3/4" with several tapped holes probably for a miter gauge with parts removed

If it looks like the picture below, it is called a miter gauge. If so, it is designed specifically to push stock at an angle. Also comes as a "system" as shown in the second picture, but a hardwood or mdf scrap could serve as the fence as well--so long as it is straight.

Finally got a round tuit. You can get anything on the Internet. Yes, it is basically a miter gauge that I'm wanting to build. I got the part that goes in the T-track at Woodcraft. Just need some help in the basic design or ideas. Many thanks. Have a project for SWMBO- building a rack for her necklaces using various drawer knobs. With all the jewelry he has now, I figure a 4X8 baltic birch panel will work. >:)

vindaloo, thanks for the great video! Well done- good sound, no blocking one's view with fingers or hands, clear step-by-step visuals. I was pondering how he cut the groove for the base to pivot. Sheer genius. I would have fussed and fumed while trying to figure it out myself. Gives me a great starting point.

Great job on the video ;)

I was thinking it would be cool too add a piece that drops down and has a bolt in it to calibrate it to zero as a stop

I really like Jack's videos. He has come up with some unique ideas and creations. His safety practices sometimes raise the hair on the back of your neck, but his channel is well worth subscribing to.

Liked the video, Angie. Jack Howerling, the guy in the video comes up with some great ideas. I have made a few of his things. Sharp fellow.

vindaloo, can't open the link in Post #12. Had a similar glitch on another website.

This sled is essentially for the right angle.
Also have the accessories for an any angle fence on the same sled.
No pix yet for that, but soon.
Pat, how do you make that sled? Or do you plan on selling it? I'd be very interested in a step by step, even if it cost a few pesos.

I'm very interested in any additional pics.

Yes, I'm still interested. It looks like it'd make a quality addition to the shop.
