Looks innovative & interesting….
I hope that, in part 2, you demo many of the cuts/joinery that are possible.

Anxiously awaiting Part 2….

I’m with Randy. This looks interesting. Learned a bunch about Router Jigs I did not know. Thanks!

Attempted to do large screen in corner but that function didn’t seem to work? Might be just me but thought you’d like to know?

As I said in the YouTube video comments:
I was initially impressed by the WoodRat, but I eventually realised that its function basically depended upon aligning pencil marks – so the accuracy related to the users eyesight! Provided that spacings are arranged in multiples of the thread pitch, it seems that – like the box joint jig – you have ingeniously resolved this issue.
What a clever chap you are!
Congratulations on another masterpiece of functionality at low cost.

BTW, you are exactly right with the comment from the Woodrat people – ‘b**r’ is the expletive of choice down here in Somerset!

PS – nitpicking mode ON – you keep forgetting to update the #46 number on the video title. ‘Could do better’. (LOL)

Thanks for the comments! Yes, I will be making a video with some actual cutting in it once I get the jig tuned up.

Nice bit of ‘jigsmithing’ there.
