A well designed and well construction sled is a most useful accessory that adds precision and safety to your work.  

 

One caution about using a sled concerns the emergence of the blade through the rear fence.  This presents a danger to thumbs because there is a tendency for the operator to push the sled past the blade.  I see that you have a protective block on your sled and you stop the sled,  but I have also placed a leash on my sled that stops the sled's travel, so that the blade can not emerge from the block. 

 

By the way,  here is a link to a video that shows a method to set the fence with precision
