That is about the most first class job I have laid eyes on for a CC sled. I am bookmarking this thread for further study and possibly build one for myself. May have to call on you for some measuring and such if you don't mind.


Excellent work and thanks for taking the time to share.

Dang.. well thank you Bob!!! your kind words are very much appreciated!!

Still have to fabricate the mitering arms and I have a couple of ideas for
material braces that i'm toying with. I'd really like it to be a multifunction sled when its done. Crosscut as well as dead on miters. Currently working on a cursor that incorporates a magnyfing glass (for the old eyes). One thing i really like about this setup is that the insert is removalble/replaceable for different blades. TK, RK, dado's etc... The sliding piece on the back can be removed and another put in its place to accomodate box joint construction.

The miter slides are Incra's best 25"s with 3 adjusters. This is the way to go!
At no time does the sled pivot before or after passing the blade. Giving truer cuts. The stop stands square to the fence at a true 90 degree's. and the 2 kerf's on the lower portion of the sled are aligned with matching slips on the back of the stop allowing for mitered pieces to be set up...

Still alot of tweaking to do, and lots of ideas, but so far, so good...

Hey Jim..

went with the Incra deluxe sliders. As good as they get IMHO...worth every penny..
You can see in the pics I drilled holes in the bed to access the mounting holds as well as the adjustment screws. This allows me to "tweak" the sled as needed. Even gives me a couples of thousands of angle adjustment. Even at that, all of those adjustments are only as good as the blade resting on the arbor..try finding a blade with very little runout!!!

where do you stand with your project?..

btw.. Merry Christmas to you, your bride and youngblood...

Excellent CCS, Bill. I like the idea of replaceable blade inserts. Great job.
