« Part 13: Slightly more halfway Part 14 of Combine series Part 15: Wheels »

Below 20 pictures from making a jig. This jig is used on a router table to make notches in tractor wheels, but it’s also possible to use it on circle saw. You can’t see it on the the pictures but this jig glides between two guides.

Thanks for watching

In my opinion Jan, one of the most creative parts of woodworking is being able to create jigs that make it possible to carry out highly accurate and otherwise almost impossible tasks quickly and safely. It seems to me that you have mastered that skill. A lot to learn here.

I’ll say it also: Very impressive. Lotsa tedious cutting done perfectly. Jigs are a lot like clamps… can never have too many
