That is certainly the best way to make the sled. If it is adjustable it can also be used to make miter cuts. Since I do not do metal work I do not even have an instrument that can measure 00.075If you make your fence adjustable initially, you can move the fence incrementally until you are satisfied. Then apply fixing screws.
Do you own a feeler gauge? You know, the one used to adjust valve lash and spark plug gap.Thanks for the info. Everything else was square and parallel. It's just a fence issue. It was .075 off with a 9" piece of stock. I will go down and try and readjust the fence today and see if I can get closer. I am going to buy a large framing square as I don't own one.
That's why I suggested using a a long steel scale against the plate of the blade which will effectively extend it 18" or 24" etc. an more accurate method.Here is a better picture to describe the difference.
This is over a distance of 10", since that's the blade size...
I've read this whole thread and there is TMI.I just built a new cross cutting sled and did the 5 cut test and it's off by .075.
So by that, it means I need to move the left side of the fence back .075 correct?
