Multitasking Tablesaw Sled
Inserts prolong the life of this jig.
I've seen published designs for tablesaw sleds in several publications, but they all lose their accuracy eventually as the blade slot wears and widens.
My 10"-wide insert prolongs the sled's life by allowing me to replace the insert when it gets chewed up beyond repair after making bevel or dado cuts.
I took the idea a step further by giving each insert a different job. The one shown here does 45° miters, but I've also got an insert for crosscuts, one for dadoes, and even one for cutting box joints.
