Crosscut Sled

I'm relatively new to this, so this is my first Crosscut Sled. Believe it or not, I didn't have to make any adjustments to the rear fence. I used the 5 cut method and it was within .0006 from the start, I was very happy with that. I still plan to add some track with a movable stop on the fence soon.

Nicely done, Scott! I can see the screenshot of your calculator but I'm more interested in how you actually measured that and what you used for a reference. Care to elaborate? I like my equipment to be spot on because I do a lot of delicate work and inlay so I'm always eager to learn new techniques.

I appreciate it. I used the 5 cut method, you can find the demonstration on Youtube. But basically you cut 5 sides off of a square piece of wood, rotating it each cut. The 5th piece you measure on each side with a micrometer, subtract the difference, divide that by 4, then divide that by the length of the piece you measured previously. You use your cut line as a reference. Sounds confusing, but it's not once you do it.

Good video on it.

Yes it is. Held together with glue and screws. I also used Oak for the runners.

No, just winged it, no plans. I'm sure it looks like someone else's, I've seen many that look like others.
