Crosscut Sled
 
Anyone ever made a cross cut sled wide enough to cut 16-18 wide panels? I am getting more shop time now that grass season has slowed down. I would normally do this on the radial arm saw but somethings worn and the saw isn't square to the table. good on the fence just not the table. I have an understanding of how to do it its just the tracks are getting to me.

I haven't, but that dude has. I think mine only goes up to 14ish inches. For a sled that long though, a steel bar to ride in the miter slot would be the way to go, with wood you run too much risk of flexing over the span

Here's my mid size version and not shown is the front table extension which allows me to crosscut about 20". If I was to do it again I would probably put the fence on the leading edge like my other sled.

I have one that cuts up to 26". In my opinion the best sled vid I have seen is by William Ng. I made mine just like his and mine is accurate within .002. He also tells how to cut the runners so there is no slop. Here is the vid
