I built myself a couple of sleds mainly because my miter gauge wasn't perfect straight out of the box. Recently I took the time to eliminate slop and added about a 30" fence leaving my sled to collect dust. It's so much easier to move that around than my heavy sled. Plus, it's much easier to slide the fence when needed to eliminate tear out. So I guess my question is, what's my sled have that my gauge doesn't? Depth/stability? Haven't noticed a loss really.
