I came across this cool angle fixture as they are characterizing it but it has far more potential than just this; I see it as an angle tool for all sorts of applications. At the very least I hope it is inspiring to others.

Thanks for the link! That’s a neat little rig, really neat. I think I may make a go at making one, or five!

I’m going to download the drawings on my laptop later today (on my netbook now) and see how accurate they are and what format they’re in. If they’re suitable, I may email them to my father and see what he thinks about programming them and machining me a few, maybe even a few to sell too.

Even if I can make templates from hardboard, they look simple enough tht I should be able to run them with a Spiral pattern bit on my router table and mill some from acrylic or even aluminum.

Neat idea though, thanks for sharing!

If you don’t have an application for that specific one it could be easily modified to either fit your specific needs or employ the concept in some other jig or fixture. I just thought it was really cool and it looks so well machined. Aircraft plywood is great; I wish I could afford that.
I’m glad that you liked it and I hope others find a use for it.
