Rockler Table Saw Small Parts Sled

This miniature crosscut sled lets you use your table saw to cut small parts to length. Great for cutting dowels, tenon stock and small moldings at a precise 90° angle, with little to no tear-out. The sled features zero-clearance support, which reduces the chance of small pieces getting stuck between the blade and throat plate, or falling through entirely. A small plastic ramp on one side of the kerf carries the drop-off piece away from the blade. The sled includes a miter track stop that limits the forward travel of the sled.


Features:

  • Sled base and fence provide zero-clearance support—just run it through your saw to locate the kerf
  • Sled rides in miter track of your table saw—included miter slot stop limits forward travel of sled
  • Rear-mounted blade guard is adjustable to fit most table saws
  • Aluminum T-track on top edge of fence lets you add a flip stop (not included) for repeatable cuts
  • Short T-track parallel to blade accepts an optional T-track hold-down clamp (sold separately)
(1) Rockler Table Saw Small Parts Sled
(1) Blade Guard
(1) Miter Track Stop

Safety at the table saw when cutting small parts
Cross-cutting small parts on a table saw with a miter gauge can be very dangerous, and most clamping systems do not help much. I find the Rockler small parts sled ideal, and a welcome addition to my shop. No more holding down small parts with a pencil/eraser tip. No need to have my hands anywhere near the blade. Cutoffs side down the ramp guide and away from the blade so no more flying missiles.

Ends your fears and calms your worries
For several years, I have had to cut small workpieces with dubious makeshift methods that were usually rickety, and involved getting my fingers too close to spinning saw blades. This small parts sled ends all that, so I don't have to waste time setting up some sort of jig.

Small parts cross cut sled.
I love this thing. I needed to cut some small pieces of wood for a project and this made my cuts safely and quickly. I use it when I try to cut small thin strips and this sled keeps my fingers away from the table saw blade.

This sled is a fingertip saver! Glad I found it before I lost any. If you cut small parts this is for you.

Would this work with a Sawstop?
Spike on Mar 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I have the contractors saw stop and it works great.
How does the small plastic ramp on one side of the kerf get positoned so it both zeros against the blade kerf and causes the drop-off piece to fall away?
Larry D on Mar 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure the "proper" way to position it, but I just eyeballed it a little short of the blade, and that seems to work fine.
Will this work on a 10" Craftsman table saw?
Mark H on Apr 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have a craftsman 10 inch table saw and I know that this sled will not work on it.
Is this the sled Jimmy Diresta used in his video about making the floating drawer shelves? Thank you :)
Nick W on Mar 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This sled is for small projects such as pen turning. The Cross Cut sled in Jimmy Diresta's video is Rockler Tablesaw CrossCut Sled Item #: 33113.
What is the height from the bed of the sled to the top of the fence height?
I want to use the 2-1/4" Fence Flip Stop (Rockler #31214) but the "Technical Details" table above says the Fence Height is 1-1/8" high.
Thanks.
tony K on Apr 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The height of the fence from the bed to the top of the T track is 2 3/16 . The fence stop might work just fine, if not I would just grind off a 1/16. I have not used the sled yet, but am happy with the quality of the sled.
Is there a stop for cutting multiple parts of the same length? I don't see one. How do you cut multiple parts?
T O on Jun 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No, if the part is small enough I use a spring clamp and piece of scrap for a stop. If the pieces being cut are longer than the sled I use a magnetic block on the table saw's table to set the stop.
Used the sled for furniture making. Right now I'm building a series of miniature boxes and use the sled several times a day. Works great.
Do I need to purchase any other material to complete the sled?
Nancy R S on Apr 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This answer is from Ed, Egilda’s husband (she bought it for me as a gift). Everything is included, mostly I use it to cut pen blanks. I do however need to use an additional clamp along with the hold down clamp supplied.
Is there a larger version of this available?
Jeffy on Jun 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I am not aware of a larger version, the one I have really works great. I highly recommend it.
Does it fit Dewalt job site table saw?
Tom on Jul 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I am not 100% sure but I don't see why not. I have the big table saw from home Depot and it fits it fine
Will this sled fit the deWalt 60V table saw?
Raymond on Nov 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I am not sure, but I see no reason why it would not work. Great little sled.
Does it work with DADO Blades?
David S on Aug 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No it doesn't.
What is the maximum length peice of wood you can use?
THERESA L on Jul 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Not sure that maximum length is really an issue, you can hang as much out to either side as you can safety hold. This is not really the right tool for the job if you want to cut long pieces.
I am concerned that the plastic blade guard will not permit the use of the T track to utilize a stop for repeat cuts of the same size. what has been your experince?
Lee F on Apr 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It will not allow the use of a stop when cutting short objects. I took the guard off (yeah , yeah , yeah I know) and bought the rockler stop and the mini clamp and find that works good though I had to cut about 3/8" off the stop bottom so I could cut 1/4" pieces. I do plan on adding a guard onto it in the near future since I do see the need for it.I do like it though I thought it was going to be a little bit bigger.
will this unit work on a DeWalt DW 745 Table Saw?
jeeptony on Apr 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This unit will work on any type table saw. The miter slide is fixed, but where the saw kerf appears is adjustable for the saw type. I am using mine right now of a 10" Porter Cable Jobsite Table Saw. I'll have to buy another one for my normal cabinet saw, since the location of the saw kerf will be different. I am very please with this unit.
Will this work on my Dewalt tablesaw?
Craig C on Jan 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: As long as the table saw has a standard sized miter gage slot it should.
Is there any reason this couldn't be used as a dedicated 45 degree bevel cut sled?
Trent W on Dec 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: While you could disassemble and reassemble this small parts saw sled to be a dedicated 45 degree bevel cut sled it would still be limited to a part that is only 1 inch thick and the width of the throat of the sled. This sled is designed for and works best when the saw blade is set at 90 degrees to the table.
Does this work well on SawStop's job site saw?
Garry on Jul 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I am using it with a SS jobsite and it works fine.
What is the width of the rails used??
Jay money on Nov 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The "T" rails on the vertical members are 3/4" - the same size as the T rails
used on other Rockler products.
Can you cut 45 degree meters on this sled?
Charles O on Aug 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This sled is designed for 90 degree cut of pen stock. You will need a different sled for 45 degree cuts.
will it work on a ShopSmith Mark V?
G R on Apr 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would think that if you have a track for the sled, it would probably work.
In my opinion,the most important feature of a sled (after safety) is a perfect 90 degree cut. Has anyone done a five-cut test on this sled to evaluate it? If so, what did you find?
dgloo on Apr 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I cut pen blanks 10+ at a time. Cuts true every time.

Only problem is the t-slot used to hold parts down could be beefed up a little better. I had to glue it down, as well as beef up the screw holes that keep it attached
Could this be adapted to make 45 degree miter cuts, to make mitered corners for boxes? Feels like it could be, but maybe the ramp piece might get in the way.
Caleb G on Sep 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Caleb: The simple answer is 'No." The sled is designed to run perfectly parallel to the blade to make accurate 90-degree cuts across narrow or short pieces of wood. If you want to make corner cuts for larger items, Rockler sells a large sled with an arm that adjusts for any angle. I use both of them regularly and can confirm their accuracy.
What is the cut capacity? Can it cut up to 2" thick stock?
Thomas B on Mar 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I haven’t used it yet but I really don’t think it’s made for large parts. I would use my sled for pieces 2” thick personally.
