Multitasking Tablesaw Sled
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.
