New table saw sled

Well, holidays are almost over, and I started a new project. My kid’s grandpas and grandmas are helping me a lot, as I need to prepare for Christmas festival in December. Several posts ago I was selling Proxxon table saw, I also have FET model, and I was going to buy Byrnes’ table saw after that. Well, I was too optimistic about that! At first, we moved to the new apartment, then all these sanctions and oil prices cause the horrible currency rate, and dollar price skyrocketed. Then I need some (hehe, some!) money for London trip. So Byrnes remains in my dreams only, alas.

But I still have FET, the only thing I didn’t have any jigs for it, and I need them badly!
My first must-have is table saw sled. This time I used acrylic and found a laser cut service that cut all the details I needed. I ordered actually three sets, but only one is assembled for now.
Acrylic 3mm and 10mm is used here.

I wanted to glue the details at first, but decided to use pins, all the slots for them were laser cut as well.

Very important moment here – a fence, it should be perpendicular to the table, but laser isn’t that precise, so the sides of the fence were routed later.

My workspace finally has this wonderful mess 🙂 But it’s not for long, when we just moved here I didn’t have any system for organizing my tools, so some things are lost here somewhere. I need to put everything in order ASAP 🙂
