A thought occurred to me, but it probably did to you, also. Just in case, here it is:

Why not mount the jigsaw the same way as you did, via the saw’s base, but make the plywood mounting board able to pivot. Make the board narrower than the width of the box, and mount it on pivots front and back. That way it could be tilted to make bevel cuts, just like the older version.

You’d have to make a couple of adjustments to the design, but this idea might work.

Thanks, Candy!

Are your eyes open or closed, Roger? :) You can try watching it directly on youtube: HERE

Dean- The idea isn’t bad except for one thing- everything that comes between the bottom of the saw and the top of the table robs you of cutting depth, especially with finer blades which are quite short. That’s why I hated to leave the saw base on. A carriage that attaches to the base itself would make the saw set farther beneath the top and that would really hurt, especially when making beveled cuts which require a very long blade as it is.

You are welcome, Stumpy. I forget when I’m on the computer, the picture-type link in the opening post doesn’t show up on devices like iPad/iPhone. Need a secondary link for those. Like in post # 4.

Seriously, Stumps, your link of “here” works, but, there is nothing below your post on my page,.................right now, it’s a big empty space. You do look rather dashing in that Rockler apron… LOL
