Woodpeckers Coping Sled

Woodpeckers Coping Sled handles the most challenging coping cuts with ultimate precision and safety. We’ve built this rock-solid sled using the best materials available and a true “belt and suspenders” approach to securing the stock. By guiding along the fence instead of using the miter track, you don’t have to fiddle with getting the fence perfectly parallel to the miter slot when doing cope and stick cabinet doors, tenons, half-laps and other end grain cuts.
The design starts with a rigid 3/8" phenolic base that slides smoothly on the table surface. On top of this foundation, the workpiece is effectively trapped between a fixed fence and a slotted top plate that adjusts to handle stock up to 5-1/2" wide. Maximum workpiece thickness is 1-3/4". To lock the stock down, a rigid clamp beam with two hold-downs slides into place directly over the workpiece.
The new optional Iron-Grip™ Clamp Upgrade adds the speed and versatility of the single-knob Iron-Grip clamp to our original Coping Sled. The upgrade takes just a couple minutes and will save you time on every coping cut.
Unlike coping sleds that ride in the miter slot, Woodpeckers Coping Sled uses a guide that rides against the router fence…your material is square to the cutter whether the fence is parallel to the miter track or not. Focus on getting your depth of cut right and quit worrying about the miter slot. Guiding along the fence also allows you to concentrate your feed pressure where it counts the most - toward the bit and fence. The clear fence guide provides a good view of the cut and doubles as a chip deflector and bit guard. If you need more depth of cut, the optional 15" Guide gives you a longer guide and up to 3 inches of depth, great if you’re doing through tenons on table legs.
Woodpeckers Coping Sled has no sacrificial parts. Just use a piece of scrap as a backer board to prevent tear-out. Woodpeckers Coping Sled sets you up for success with any end grain cutting challenge — with simple, solid adjustments and safe, accurate performance that no other coping sled can match.
