I saw a coping sled plan that was part of a Wood Mag article Mar 2011
article "How to Build Cabinets the Quick-an-Easy Way". Not a very good
article in my opinion, at least not good cabinet design but there was
a really nice looking coping sled design where you make a set of
channels for the sled to ride in.
One concern is it adds 3/4" height to the table so the bit needs to be
chucked up a little higher or you really need to top out the lift.
Has anyone built this or something like it? Does it work well?
I think I'll make one modification. They have a clamp holding down on
the stock and I think I'll make a clamping mechanisim that pushes the
stack back into the backer. I have had end copes twist out and it
could be really ugly at worst and just crap the part at best. My
current sled has a wideblock that I slide into the stock and lock
My current sled requires me to keep it pushed to the fence. This
design seems much better.
