  • Professional "Deluxe" Coping Safety Sled

  • Reviews

Our Top Coping Safety Sled!

Our top sled makes cross grain cuts easy. Works perfectly for tricky cross-grain rail cuts.Eliminate the need to make the router table fence and mitre slot parallel. Small and narrow cuts are no problem! Glide the sled along the router fence and cut into the backer block to reduce tearout. The sled is 6-1/2" x 16" x 3/8"(thick) and holds stock up to 4-3/4" wide. Replaceable "backer block" allows use of multiple profiles. With dual adjustable fences, clear base, hold down, and a special abrasive strip to firmly hold material. The 500 lb. capacity hold down clamp has heavy duty adjustable dual pad hold downs for maximum strength and rigidity. The coping sled handle can be repositioned using the pre-drilled mounting holes on the opposite of the base. This is provided for shaper and reverse feed operations. REMEMBER: Always keep router bits seated with at least 1 inch of metal gripped by the collet.

Base too flexible and fragile (1/5), Oct 20, 2011

By Bob Pearce (Paonia CO US)

Under clamping pressure this unit flexes the baseplate greater than 1/16th inch and completely misaligns the cut. The thumbwheels to tighten the blocks even have fractured the baseplate at the T slot. Agree with others that the concept is good but the baseplate is pathetic. Needs to be aluminum.

(MLCS NOTE: We have sold a large number of these coping sleds without issue and our woodworkers use them successfully in our shop. The flexing issue reported is most likely related to over-tightening of the clamp hold-downs. Only light pressure is needed due to the presence of the anti-slip base and secondary support block.)

I need directions for use on table saw


Bends (3/5), May 19, 2011

By Martin (Mt Crested Butte Co US)

Whereas the idea is good with the tension on the clamp set to minimum, the base of the sled (Plexiglass) bends far to easily. It would be probaly better if the base was made out of something stiffer (alumimum plate perhaps).

(MLCS NOTE: We have sold a large number of these coping sleds without issue and our woodworkers use them successfully in our shop. The flexing issue reported is most likely related to over-tightening of the clamp hold-downs. Only light pressure is needed due to the presence of the anti-slip base and secondary support block. Also, because the bit may cut into the base, it would be not possible to make this out of a more solid material like aluminum as it may damage the bit.)


Bob (5/5), Jan 8, 2010

By Bob Caranci (Port St Lucie FL US)

I purchased a deluxe coping sled. I find that when appling pressure to the hold down, the plastic base will pull up which takes the base off the router table. I will be returning this product because the base is not strong enough to resist the pressure exerted by the hold down. This tool is not very well constructed.
