Table saw fence alignment is crucial for clean and safe table saw rip cuts. This jig includes an adjustable miter bar (runner) that can be adjusted for a tight fit due to expansion and contraction (humidity changes).

I enjoyed your video, I really like the making of the miter bar. That’s pretty clever how you came up with a method to adjust it as the wood expands and contracts. Great job!

Nice job. I also really like the miter bar idea. I might do that for a small panel cutter.

Guess I don’t see much. This video would not start in my browser, Firefox 22. Oh well. Managed to find the Youtube version and everything works.

Just battled the Arizona heat and put your jig together. I was shocked to find my fence 15 thousands off where
the end of the fence was pushing towards the saw blade. I thought my fence was dead on and to my shock it was not. Everything lines up now and the cuts are dead accurate using a caliper end to end on a 18” piece.
