Small Parts Ripping Sled

By: Logan Wittmer
Here's a Great Little Sled that Aids in Making Small Parts at the Table Saw.

I often find myself in the middle of a project that requires ripping a lot of small parts to a narrow width. The recent model train from Woodsmith No. 245 was one of those projects. So, I decided to build a simple ripping sled to help me safely rip the small parts at my table saw. 12 7 01 Ripping Sled. The fixture I came up with is shown here. It’s a small sled with a pair of T-tracks in the base to attach an adjustable fence. 12 7 03 By moving the fence, you can accurately set the width of the cut (photo below). 12 7 05 Once you have the width set, the fence tightens down with a couple of knobs. Then, slip the workpiece in place and use the toggle clamp to hold it down while making a cut. It’s perfect for ripping those small, narrow pieces while keeping your hands well away from the blade.
