Adv/Disadv of Left, Right or center kerf on a table saw sled?
I have seen table saw sleds with the blade passing down the center, left or right of center. Why ? What is the advantage or disadvantage of each?
my thinking is a center kerf will allow both sides to be used but the disadvantage is that you limit the cut to the width of the sled.
having a left or right will allow more support of the piece to be cut on one side. I assume the side that is longer coincides with the side of the table that has a larger side area. Downside is all the cuts are taken from one side, if I had to guess.
I also wonder if 45 deg miters can still be done if the kerf is at 1/3 from one side at all say when you are making picture frames.
looking to hear if my thought are valid and what other reasons to select one over the other.
