    Hi Mark,

    Thanks for the video and photos on the crosscut sled. I’ve just brought a table saw for my workshop, used more for hobbies than anything else but this sled could be just what I’m looking for. I’m female, so a little nervous about working without the guard but after watching the video and also your other one demonstrating the microjig grr ripper, I think they should make me feel much safer. I don’t have a lot of spare cash to splurge of expensive tools but I’m hoping this sled would work ok on my lower end/cheaper ryobi saw bench?

    Keep up the great work, love all your videos!

      Hi Kim. As long as you can get the rails into the miter slots, it should work. Also keep in mind that you can build a nice guard into the sled if you want to. A wood box on the fence could help cover the blade when the sled is pushed all the way forward. And a guard made from wood and plexiglass could span the distance from the front fence to the rear fence. Both will make things quite a bit safer for you.

    Hi, I have an old tendo multi function machine ther is guide slot available hence unable to fit a mitre guide, after watching your video it inspired me to be a little creative and was able to fit a guide slot to take a rail and then went about making a sled even though it only runs on one guide rail. it seems accurate but not been able to measure it for inaccuracy against any other piece of work. enjoy all your video.
