Wise Buys: Coping Sleds
For $25 more than the MLCS sled, Rockler offers a larger phenolic base with nearly double the width capacity, and a front guide block to sandwich the workpiece against the wood backer block. You also get a larger clamp pad and a front-mounted knob for two-handed control. One knock: During assembly, I had to deepen the countersunk holes for the handle to fully seat the screws and prevent scratching my router table.
