A couple of shop improvements

Recommended Posts

Nice sled ! Shop upgrades are always fun. Every time I upgrade or add something like this to my shop I always wonder what took me so long .

Same here. I had the T tracks and accessories for the sled sitting in the corner for months.

Indeed a neat week. I just made the same flip top and it’s darn handy. The sled is top notch too but a word of warning, 3 years ago when I made my 3/4”ply sled, it weighed approx 4 lbs. or so. Now it weighs close to 50 lbs. ;)

Yeah, it's a bit on the heavy side but not too bad. Once it's on the saw it slides nicely.

That's a sled and a half!

lol, I went with a sled on steroids to be able to get rid of a dedicated miter saw station long the other side wall. I plan to put the miter saw on a cart with collapsible wings.

I think it was the built-in drinks cabinet that added all that weight. :P

I noticed on your sled that there is a dado kerf that has been cut. Do you have another 0 clearance insert piece to use for that?

Looks great! I first saw the flip top over on Fix This Build That. It used to be a free plan, but now it's a paid plan. But if you see the write up you can figure out how it all fits together and such.
