Good idea. I’ve found that the weight of the fence causes the Osbourne to twist when it’s not fully supported by the table. I’ll have to make this as well.

Glad you like it fellas and I hope it will make things a bit easier for you.

Don , yes the Osobrne jig is doing the trick for me,
I have not used all the positions yet but it’s sturdy and the potential is there for accurate cuts.

pretty ingenious… if I could only count the times I wished for 2 more inches in front of the blade – this would have saved me lots of scrap pieces :) gonna put this one one my list.

Bob a great idea. It can be used for most miter gauges.
