Hey everyone, Just wanted to share a couple of shop Jigs with you. One is a quick and simple jig for quartering your sheets of sandpaper to use in your palm sanders or sanding blocks.

The second jig is a multi function tapering Jig that lets you do 4 sided tapers as well as straight edging rough sawn boards and cutting angles also.. There could be many more uses, there are just the 3 I focus on in the videos.

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

Excellent Tutorial Video.

Thank You for doing all the R & D on this Jig.

It could very well be the simplest, most versital ‘shop built’ TS Rip/Angle cutting/Tapering Sled/Jig that I’ve ever seen.

With a little engineering and the addition of a sacrificial plate, towards the center, I can see it double as the top to a Drill Press hold down table when not in use as a TS Sled. Double Duty and what better place to store this Sled.

Will look forward to building this one, soon.

Thanks for sharing.

Best Regards. – Grandpa Len.

Another great set of instructional videos!

The multi purpose tapering jig is not only a good one but is much safer than those adjustable wedge shaped things that slide along the fence that are sold commercially.

We all appreciate you taking the time to do these videos. And your enthusiasm is contagious!

These are great jigs. I really need that sandpaper sheet jig, I will eventually make that! I’ve heard that contact cement can really stink up your shop, did that happen to you?

Great jigs!

AJ Contact Cement does have a smell, but not that bad.. however it is recommended to work in a well ventilated area and use a respirator.
