The Precision Crosscut Sled was designed in the magazine for saws that are right-tilt. In Episode 403 of Woodsmith Shop, the Precision Crosscut Sled shown was built for our left-tilt saw. Because most saws today are left-tilt, we have included a couple of illustrations showing the construction details for the mirror-image left-tilt sled in the Woodsmith Plan associated with this article. The items that change are the direction of the sliding base, and the position of the long fence.
