    New Crosscut Sled

    So here is what I have been up too, Other than a box for a friend; which I will post sometime.
    I needed a new crosscut sled as my other one had some issues. So I spent some down time watching videos and decided I liked the one Nick Ferry made. I took his design and had at it. I added the removable inserts so I can do 90 and 45 degree cuts with the same sled. I also am going to add a 45 degree miter jig to it as well when I get the funds for some more plywood. I added slots to the fences so I can cut up to 1 1/4" wide/tall any length with this jig.
    With this sled I can save some space with only one sled taking the place of three. The safety block is removable as well for easy replacement if necessary.
    I had a few issues building it but it has come out great so far. It is accurate to .0005 in 12 1/2".

    Like it -- like it a lot especially with your mods. Watch Nick as well however he hasn't produced very few videos in the past six months or so.

    At one time I thought I wanted to re-create a sled like my "dubby" however after seeing Nick's design I like it as well. I have a digital readout that I was going to incorporate into the dubby style; other than 90 degree angles, the only other one I've cut with any regularity is 45 so why do I need to include a digital readout.

    Nice and sturdy. You'll sure get many years from it.

    I think, therefore I'm more confused than when I began.
