Smooth-running sled ensures perfectly square coped rail ends with virtually zero tear-out.
If you're building cope-and-stick doors and drawer fronts, our new Rail Coping Sled will be an indispensable helpmate. With its smooth-sliding phenolic base, and sturdy toggle clamp holding your stock firmly against the fence, your rails will travel unwaveringly past the cutter for the cleanest, squarest cuts you can imagine. Particularly with drawer fronts, which sometimes use very narrow rails, the sled prevents parts from dipping in too deep and keeps your hands safely out of harm's way. A sacrificial block can be attached to the fence to prevent end grain blowout, while an abrasive strip prevents the workpiece from wandering. Unlike many jigs that use the miter slot, our sled uses only the fence as a reference, so there is no need to waste time aligning the miter slot parallel with the fence. In addition, the coping sled has been redesigned so that the reference edge is a separate clear guide rail elevated 2'' above the table, meaning there is no risk of cutting into the sled.
- New, taller round handles allow a firm, comfortable grip from any angle of approach
- Smooth-sliding 3/8'' thick phenolic base stays rigid and flat when toggle clamp pressure is applied
- Toggle clamp features easy, tool-free adjustments and one-handed operation
- Clear, elevated guide runs against fence, offering a large, smooth-running reference edge without having to cut into the sled
- Clear guide runs 2'' above the table, so it works with most router table fences on the market (all Rockler and Bench Dog fences)
- Sacrificial block is easily replaceable to accommodate different profiles
- Maximum workpiece dimension is 5'' wide x 1-1/4'' thick
