ENOUGH TALK ABOUT THE NEW SAW, LET’S BUILD SOMETHING WITH IT!!!
I’d love to tell you it would be something über cool, ultra modern and hip…but then it wouldn’t be on this show if it were. Instead, the first project on the new saw is something FOR THE NEW SAW; it’s a very basic, no frills crosscut sled.
The entire sled is built from scraps and cutoffs laying around the shop, the only thing I didn’t make myself was the Micro Jig ZeroPlay Guide Bars. I maybe doing this on the cheap, and can easily just toss it on the burn pile and start all over, but why worry about loose miter bar guides when I can spend the money on these reusable and adjustable manufactured ones that take all the worry our for me? (In full disclosure, when we gave away a few pairs of these over the summer, I snagged myself a set from the pile…don’t worry…Micro Jig already knows)
If you follow the show on either Facebook or Google+ I mentioned getting ready to build one and asked what the ones look like that you’ve built. A number of you responded with some really interesting ideas, both simple and WAY tweaked out.
I’d love to see and hear more of your creations, please send them in and I’ll put together a gallery on the website to share with everyone. Email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
