RTS31 Miter improvement?
I just purchased this saw and so far, I love it. I do have one question and would love some input. The saw comes with the built-in miter sled and I'm not a big fan of the miter gauge that attaches to it, it's clunky and I doubt its accuracy.
I was curious if anyone had tried to build a more traditional miter jig for this saw. This is a tough because the sled is a part of the tablesaw's surface and there are no true miter gauge slots for a miter jig to run in. Unfortunately, googling it produces nothing as it only takes you to sites with info about the saw itself since "miter sled" is a spec of the product.
I am thinking about modifying/removing the sled and possibly building a new top into that space with a miter slot. Curious if anyone had any better ideas? My planned projects to this point are boxes and picture frames where a true miter jig would help ensure good fits since the provided gauge is questionable. I included a stock photo and can take pics later to better illustrate. All ideas welcome.
