New zero clearance sled with hold downs

Hey y’all! We have a new sled in the workshop for making zero clearance cuts. It has a couple T tracks with a hold down toggle to help secure wood.

It’s not 100% perpendicular to the blade though. If anyone is great at making sleds feel free to improve on it!

It’s also a little large for our sled cart. Maybe we could look at putting a shelf in the opening by the miter saw that also contains sleds?

Is the rear fence (closest to operator) adjustable? That is what needs to be adjusted. Here’s a method I use for my sled. The 5 cut method. I start with a try square for initial adjustment, then go on to the 5 cut method. You can go crazy with this method, but if you get a really small number, it might be fine. It all depends on what you are building.

It is not adujstable right now, but that would be cool to do! We could also take off the second T track and install that along the operator side fence.
