  1. Steve,  Very nice video!  I will be putting this to use soon.  I received my first Table saw for Christmas this year.  I have one question.  It is a Skil 3310 and the miter slots have little tabs that stick out in two places, to hold the miterguage in, i guess.  Is it standard practice to remove these tabs?

    Thank You,

  2. Thank you for your videos, you are one of the few that I watch each week.   The question I have, and it may be one that was talked about earlier, and I missed it, but the 3/4" slot for the bolt in the fence looks like it is too wide, as the bolt can spin in the slot.  Shouldn't the bottom be smaller than 3/4', so the bolt is secure from spinning in the slot? 

  3. Hi Steve
    I've made a sled very similar to yours and it works brilliant although not yet finished.
    I run an 18" wide by 6mm thick board over it so that I can try and create a perfect 90 degrees. over the 18" length. The board is about 0 to 2mm out of parallel . I've removed all the screws (except one) and readjusted my back fence pivoting 1mm then screwed it back moving the screw further (i.e. not using the old screw hole). Is there a plus or minus acceptance level whilst cutting along this 18" board length.
    I cutting a 2" by 3" timber end grain and it seems to be very good.

  4. Thank you, Steve, for making this video. Yes, there are super, exact videos out there for making super, exact table saw sleds. I will never build a piano with my little 25 year old Makita contractor's saw. But with a simple sled I can make the almost exact cuts for the things I do make. Sometimes "Good Enough" is really good enough.

  5. Thank you for the excellent video and clear instructions. Finally! A table saw sled for the real world woodworker rather than the Norm Abrams wannabes. Seriously, if you have a joiner and a planer yet you need a YouTube video to show you how to make a table saw sled, then I'd be happy to take some of that abundant spare cash you have off your hands. I think you have your spending priorities a bit backwards.

    Steve, I love your videos and your website. You are my go to whenever I need plans or instruction. Keep up the great work!
