Default Safer Miter Gauge Guided Sled Design

Howdy...
While surfing through Peachtree, I found almost* exactly what I was hoping someone would make: Miter slot tee-bar with the retainers for the miter slot's tee bottom. Looks like a big step up in safety, and for only $12.99 per 32" piece or $15.99 per 48" piece. For that price and the safety it provides, it seems like a no-brainer for me.

It's towards the bottom, under "Standard Miter T-bar".

You're not imagining things, Levon.. I posted it in my thread about cutting thick maple and then someone suggested I post it elsewhere too, since it might get "lost" in there. So I posted it under Tools and Safety; Safety because that's its focus, tools... well, you know. With the number of people who have been injured lately, I've got a real safety focus these days. :-)

Levon... if/when/whether to post information in more than one place is a judgement call. Whether right or wrong, after receiving the suggestion that I post it in more prominent locations, I decided it would get the most immediate attention in "Tools and Woodworking" but, being so safety oriented, belonged there too. Also, that forum gets much less traffic so it'll take longer to fall off of the first page.
