miter bar problem
I recently purchased the Rockwell Shop Series RK7240.1 table saw. I wish to construct a cross cut sled for that saw. In order to do that I need two miter bars. All miter bars I can find are 3/4 inch wide and the miter bar slots on the RK7240.1 table saw are 11/16 inch wide.

How can I resolve this problem? Does anyone make miter bars that are 11/16 inch wide? If not, how can I get miter bars that fit my miter slots?

Please advise.

Mill them down.

Take a look at the miter bars made by Woodpeckers or Incra. Not sure of their width but I do know they're somewhat width-adjustable.

If that fails, get yourself a piece of hardwood or UHMW plastic and make one that fits.
