Miter Sled - should I keep
#9
  
A friend was cleaning out his shop and brought a miter sled he had purchased several years ago but was only gathering dust.

A Dubby

I watched a video of how to set it up and its use presented by the inventor - Jerry Cole.

I was surprised to find it fit my tablesaw perfectly.

I have several shop made sleds for my tablesaw but not one like this.

Should I make room for another jig ?

Sure, I would. Can't have too many jigs, or sleds.

I bought one of those close to 20 years ago for the saw I had then and then decided I needed a different saw before putting it to use.  Now I have a brand new vintage Dubby that doesn't fit my saw.

I'd most certainly make room for it.
I started with absolutely nothing. Now, thanks to years of hard work, careful planning, and perseverance, I find I still have most of it left.

A replacement base can be purchased from the manufacturer which can be cut to fit your saw.

Can this new sled do everything your other sleds do? If so, give some of those away and keep the new one.

Woodworkers are known junk collectors...I know because I've been to many garage sales where woodworkers left behind hardly used tools, accessories and fixtures.

That's because most people make them good for one function only. I try to make only versatile jigs that each serves at least as 2 jigs. If I can't, I repurpose some of them. If a jig has not been used for 8 to 10 years, I cannibalize it.

Jigs and patterns/templates are different things. I have lots of templates but they don't take up space.

The microjig ultimate jig can do I think 4 or 5 functions, for example. That's 5 jigs in 1.
