Straight Line Rip Sled for Woodmaster
« on: April 10, 2017, 11:40:10 pm »
Does anyone have any pictures of a straight line sled for use with a woodmaster planer/molder that they could post. A video would be even better.   I'm particularly interested in how it holds the board as it passes though.

Thanks

I built a couple sleds for my woodmaster. You need a block at the end slightly lower than the material your sawing. Otherwise the power feed rollers pull the wood but not the sled.
Good luck
Have a great day

Gary Striegler is as good a carpenter as there is.  You look up "carpenter" in the dictionary they might have a photo of him. Been following him for many years.

Instead of the cleat on the sled I drive a finish nail in an clip it off 1/8 above surface so it bites board when feed rollers engage .I usally only use when I have a lot of long boards to run otherwise I just use the jointer .It's also helpful to have a 8,10,12 foot sled board so you have a sled to match board length
