Lacks hold down clamp
They needed 2 go 1 more step and added a clamp 2 hold the piece down. The 1 adjustable side clamp just isn't enuf. Tried 2 find a solution, but it just wasn't worth it. Returned.
Works well, with a little help from a bar clamp
This sled keeps the work piece on the router table, unlike most designs that put the work piece on top of the sled. This is a major advantage. You don't have to reset the bit height after routing long pieces that won't fit on a sled. This saves time, and makes it certain that the long and short edges will match. But putting the work piece under the sled makes it hard to apply enough pressure on the clamp to keep the work piece from moving when it passes the bit without the support of the router fence. The self-adhesive sandpaper strips provided don't help much. But I worked out a simple fix. I used one-handed bar clamp to draw the clamping knob toward the rear handle. The added pressure keeps the workpiece from jumping around as it passes the bit.
