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

I need cheaper hobby

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
