CROSSCUT SLED. Sometimes in the shop, we need a device to improve the accuracy of our work. Jigs can come to the rescue. Many miter gauges cannot support work pieces longer than a couple of feet for making accurate crosscut. So in this case, a crosscut sled is the perfect solution. It cradles long work pieces and slides over the saw table along the saw's miter slots. A fence in the back holds work pieces securely for dead on crosscuts every time. A crosscut sled will add accuracy, ease of operation and safety to your work.
- It rides in both miter gauge slots to keep it tracking accurately without slop.
- It immobilizes the work piece on a platform mounted to these slides, against a sturdy fence.
- It is not adjustable, so it won't get out of square.
