Need help from a metal worker.

I am searching the forums in search for help. I need someone to make a miterbar for a jig I need to build. I have a craftsman table saw with a nonstandard miterbar slot and need someone to make me a bar for a sled that I will build. You can email me for the details. I will pay you for your time, materials and shipping costs.

See if you can find a miter bar with a slide bar too wide for your table slot and have a machinist trim it to fit your slot.

That is why I came to this forum to find help with this. I don't know any machinist. Maybe I need to look on another forum.

buy an oversize bar and draw file it to fit.
Or look up machine shops in the yellow pages and find one that wil mill the bar you need.

Just use wood for the bar.
