I received it via an email from WOODSMITH and saved the article as a PDF. Can I send either to you?Anyway for a non-subscriber to learn the trick that doesn't violate the forum's copyright rules?
Doesn't always work for me either. But, this method seems so much easier than the 5-cut squaring process.The trick with "use a square to make it perpendicular" tasks is making sure that nothing moves while you are screwing, gluing, clamping, or whatever. It isn't always easy, and it doesn't always turn out for me.
Basically the squaring process is squaring the arbor so that any blade you use should be square as long as it is flat and undamaged. This process will make the sled fence perpendicular to the arbor and any blade will also be perpendicular as long as it is flat.The thing that comes to mind is that each sled would have to be assigned a certain blade, to account for specific tooth size, runout, etc..but you probably have the same issue with any sled/jig.
I have another method that I will mention here.Anybody see the tip that WOODSMITH Mag had for squaring a table saw sled fence?
The easiest way to make an attachment without anything moving is hold it in place and use an air nailer. If you dont already own a compressor, an air nailer doesn't use much air. Even the small pancake type compressors will drive an air nailer. The air hogs that need bigger compressors are sprayers and sanders.The trick with "use a square to make it perpendicular" tasks is making sure that nothing moves while you are screwing, gluing, clamping, or whatever.
