    No, I don't have one and it is broke down right now, but next time I have cause to set it up I will snap a few.

Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."

      I have a 40 x40" table top that I may use the super sled on to trim/square up. I'll snap a few pics in the next day or so as promised if I do end up setting it up.

        OK, here are some quick pics of the sled set up this afternoon. Mind you this thing started out as a
        one time use for the dozen or so doors I was trimming the bottom off a while back. I never made a
        permanent rail. The one time I thought I would use this I just put something together with what I
        had available in the shop, a 1x6" x 8' long, a 10 foot length of 1-1/4" PVC, and some RIDGID Flip-Top
        stands.

        So I put it all back together this afternoon so I could use it again. I guess I will have to make a
        permanent (and better) rail system and find a place to store it in the shop. I also need to spread
        the rollers out a bit so they contact the rail further apart, at about 10 & 2 O'Clock would be better
        than the 11 & 1 O'Clock positions they are in now. The wider stance will let it track better on the
        rail and it will be less likely to jump off the rail. This would also allow me to drill an access hole at
        12 O'Clock to reach in and fasten mounting screws through the bottom of the rail into the wood
        below. If I do this I will rout a groove in the rail to rest the rail in and keep it straight. The blade I
        used for this cut is a Ridge Carbide TS-2000

        This sled is 4 foot deep. The table top that is in the sled
        in the last photo is 40" square and 1" thick red oak.
