Rockler Table Saw Small Parts Sled

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

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)

Table saw small parts sled
What I like the most about the small parts sled is that after
a cut the cut piece falls away from harms way. The pieces
fall far enough away from the blade , you don't have to
stop cutting after each cut. Great time saver..

Small parts sled for table saw
works really well. So much more safer and reliable than my prior method of trying to hold small pieces on the table saw or miter saw.

It is perfect
I work with small stock, typically 1/8" and 1/4". Was making some cross grain cuts with small pieces of wood taped down on the miter saw. I have a DW745 jobsite table saw, has a pretty small bed and was worried that this sled would be too big. The guard is over the front of the table, though no big deal. Using the miter slot stop would barely get to the high point of the blade, so not using it. Otherwise is perfect, so easy to make cross grain cuts with this sled. The little ramp works great to keep the cut piece out of the way. Very happy that it works so well. Thanks Rockler

Just what I needed! I build a lot of smaller things & cross cutting is difficult & dangerous. This sled & hold down solves the problems. I would recommend this to anyone who works with small & thin pieces for their building projects!

Rockler Table Saw SMall Parts Sled
Recommend. I had to cut 100 walnut 2.25" x 2" blocks for the Hymnal cases at our Church. I was able to cut these safely and the hold down clamp - essential add on - gave me a precise cut.

My experience when buying Rockler items has been very good. Items are always very good quality. This small parts sled is something I need and I don’t think I could make it for the price they are asking. Looks like good quality and good price!
Jim B on Jun 16, 2020
I've always been a little nervous regarding sawing small parts on my table saw. This looked like it would be a better product than one I could build since it has the t-channels and saw blade guard on it where your thumbs/fingers would potentially get close to the saw blade.

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.

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.
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 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.
Will this work on the SawStop Jobsite saw ?
Michael H on Jan 15, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes. It will work on both the original SawStop Jobsite saw and the new SawStop Jobsite Pro.
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.
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.
What is the maximum length peice of wood you can use?
THERESA L on Jul 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You can cut any length workpiece provided that you can safely control the workpiece through the cut. What matters more is that the top of the blade should not be more than 1 inch above the platform, which means that the practical height limit is about 3/4 inch (leaving 1/4 inch for blade tips and gullets). The interior of the sled platform is just over 5-3/4 inches from front to back. The largest piece you can cut with this sled can be no more than 5-3/4 deep by 3/4 inch high by whatever length you can safely control.
Will this work on my Makita table saw?
Steve B on May 20, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Please measure the miter slot on your table saw. The jig will fit a 3/4" miter slot with a minimum depth of 3/8".
Miter bar distance to saw blade? How do I know if the bar distance to blade will work before ordering?
Wayne C on Apr 10, 2020
BEST ANSWER: It come "uncut" and with instructions to set it up for your specific saw, creating a zero clearance kerf in the process.
Will this miter gauge fit my Shopsmith miter gauge?
THOMAS F. D on Jan 24, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I’m not familiar with the dimensions of a Shopsmith miter gauge slot. However, the bar on the Small Parts Sled fits a standard miter gauge slot...that is 3/4” wide by 3/8” deep. So if those are the dimensions of your miter gauge slot, then it will work.

I know Craftsman tools have slightly undersize miter gauge slots so that no aftermarket woodworking tools or jigs will fit, thereby forcing you to buy genuine Craftsman accessories. So check your Shopsmith slot and see if it’s a standard 3/4” wide by 3/8” deep.

If yes, then buy the Small Parts Sled.

By the way, a most excellent accessory that I routinely use and am happy I added to my shop.
Is there a larger version of this available?
Chris 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 work with DADO Blades?
David S on Aug 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No it doesn't.
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 sled work for my dewalt table saw?
Brandon B on May 22, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes, will fit the dewalt table saw. The distance between the blade and miter slot on the saw is greater the 2 1/2 inches.
Will this work on a DWE7491Rs?
Ppstom on Jan 6, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes You just run it through the saw the first time to locate the kerf, set the miter slot stop and adjust the guard and start using it. Works great.
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.

Can you cut 45 degree meters on this sled?
Charles O on Aug 20, 2017

will it work on a ShopSmith Mark V?
G R on Apr 15, 2017
