  • The picture frame mitre sled is based on the Finewoodworking design which you can see demonstrated here

With my version no clamps are required as the sandpaper strips glued to the base give excellent grip to the stock being cut.

  • The box joint jig which is included with my Wadkin 12AGS table saw is from the design by Ed Stiles and you can view a video of him demonstrating it here

  • Large crosscut sled that accommodates stock up to 630mm deep and produces perfectly square boards.

  • Smaller crosscut sled suitable for boards up to 310mm deep. Also very accurate.

Both of my cross-cut sleds were set up using the method demonstrated by William Ng in his video:  5 Cuts to a “Perfect” Cross-Cut Sled

At first it may seem like a lot of unnecessary faffing about but I can testify from experience that it’s well worth the effort, if you want to produce perfect right-angles.
