I made a jig so I could cut strips of wood on the TS to any thickness I like.

It’s really simple and you can make one in a minute or two.

Make sure to run the wood fence through a joiner on all sides.

It works better with a zero clearance blade guard, which I need to get.

Great jig, thanks for sharing. Sometimes the answer is right in front of us and many times very simple as you have proven

I do not get it. You are adding a fence to the fence.

Madts, yes, basically. However this fence is easier to get those thin strips out with your fingers and keep them away from the blade. The fence on the TS is much taller and would be hard to grip the cut piece. And it’s not as long as the fence so you can just hold the cut piece with your fingers as it comes out. Tried this with the fence and almost every piece wanted to go down the blade into the hole. Now all I do is push wood.

Not too sure I’d trust this. Not that thin piece between the blade and fence. But if it works for you, that’s great. Just be careful with those fingers.
