    For me a miter gauge is a necessity as well a sled. Purpose built sleds provide safety, repeatability, and accuracy for creating parts that require a difficult and dangerous cut. In a production...

    Sleds are very important for the things I make. All of mine are home made.

    I am working on a way to slow down our 1983 LT 30 WoodMizer. One idea is to use a variable speed, heavy duty drill in place of the feed motor.
