When profiling the end grain of a narrow workpiece on the router table, you need a way of holding the workpiece. This is particularly relevant if your workpiece is narrower than the gap in your router fence. The UJK Technology Coping Sled holds the key to working safely, securely and achieving accurate results.
Developed and extensively tested by UJK Technology, this Coping Sled will transform the way you make end grain cuts for rail and stile doors, tenons and many other joints. If you are intending to make cabinet doors on your router table, the Coping Sled is invaluable. It is by far the best way to secure your workpiece, offering perfect results with a high degree of safety. The Coping Sled takes the stress out of the process. It ensures your workpiece is square to the table’s mitre slot and that it guides smoothly across the router bit.
The Coping Sled secures your workpiece both horizontally and vertically. A slotted top plate holds the work firmly against the sled’s rear fence. This plate prevents kickback and easily adjusts for material up to 135mm wide. Two vertical clamps prevent the workpiece lifting during the cut. The position of the foremost clamp, close to the point of cut, significantly reduces vibration. The maximum workpiece thickness is 40mm.
To prevent tear-out at the end of the cut, the Coping Sled has a 45mm wide x 22mm deep nylon fence. Unlike aluminium, nylon will not damage your router cutter. You can use the fence as a spelcher if you wish or use an off-cut to prevent tear-out. The fence includes a sliding flip-stop for repeat cuts. A T-slot cutter is available should you wish to make a replacement or custom wooden fence.
On the underside of the 10mm thick, low-friction baseboard is a 19 x 9.5mm (3/4" x 3/8") mitre slot bar. It will fit both plain and T-slot mitre slots. Two grub screws, 150mm apart, allow adjustment for zero play in the slot. The bar has a choice of five positions to accommodate a wide variety of router tables.
Two large rubberised handles provide a firm safe grip for complete control. The design allows you to position the handles directly over the work. The sled’s handles make sure both your hands remain a safe distance from the router bit. A clear, full width Plexiglas shield acts as a chip deflector.
