Sled and Frame Part 2

NOTE: SECTION 2 IS NOT DONE

Here is Part one the sled.

Note that you must not move your fence until after finding centerline and slotting for the 3/4" guide bushing

Note: that the fence is clamped in place.

Also I am using a VEE CORE BIT raised approx: 1/32nd" above the table

Here I have marked the sled bottom for the side that rides the fence. do this to both sides referencing the same edge.

We have routed the centerline on both sides now, DO THIS TO BOTH SIDES

Remember to use the ame edge as reference to the fence

THIS is Side B centerline cut.

DONT MOVE THE FENCE YET!!!!!!!!!!

 

Now it's time to use a 3/4" router bit. Lower it below table level and mount sled bottom. Slowly raise the bit into the sled. See next for results

NOTE THAT BIT IS NOW THROUGH SLED.

Now move sled sideways in bothe directions to form Bushing guide slot. DO NOT GO TO THE END LEAVE AT LEAST 2" on each side

Now thw slot is made

You may now remove the fence

NOTE THIS SAME PROCESS IS USED IF YOU ARE USING A MITER SLOT AS WELL The only diffenec is that you will need to extend the centerline from the bottom to the top using a pencil and straight edge for centerline reference. These are importatnt so that the uprights and trundle pivots will be on the centerline.

Note the guide bushing. This will act as the stop for the end to end. By placing the slot on the bushing you may now install the fence to the reference edge.
As you can see how the bottom of the sled is now ready to proceed with the next steps fo the jig.
