Zero-clearance support reduces chance of small parts binding in the throat plate—ramp guides the off-cut away from the blade after cutting.

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)

Having just purchased the small parts sled I put it to use quickly. I just wish I had bought it sooner. It is easy to use and it definitely is a "finger saver". I would recommend this sled to anyone.

Excellent addition to the table saw. Works exactly as expected. Sets up perfectly square right out of the box. A good tool that assures a safe cut on a small part. I could have easily built one, but for the price there was no need.

Quality, precision tool that is a great example of Rockler’s dedication to innovation.
Well made and robust enough for the small parts I purchased it to cut. Really like the idea of a dedicated crosscut sled just for the small stuff. That way I don’t have to drag out my full sized one.

Worth it if you cut small parts.
Works exactly like I expected. The blade guard looks like it would be rasy to break if not careful but the accuracy is great.

DOES WHJAT IT SAYS!
I have made my own sled for my table saw that uses the entire top of the table. This one is so convenient for cutting molding and anything else on the "small side". Although it is a bit "pricey" it is worth it.

What are the demensions of this products base?
Taylor on Feb 8, 2017
Would this work with a Sawstop?
Spike on Mar 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I have the contractors saw stop and it works great.
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.
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.
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.
Does it fit Dewalt job site table saw?
Tom W 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.
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.
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.
Does this work well on SawStop's job site saw?
Garry on Jul 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes it does work on the Sawstop job site saw.
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.
