Wow, really impressive and it looks totally unique as well. Great work Hobby1 and thanks for the video. I think you should post this as a project too. It’s not made from wood, but it sure is great for working with. I don’t think anyone would mind you breaking the rules a little with this one. Now you can enjoy the fruits of your labor. Have fun!

Thankyou Mike, for the very nice complement,
I don’t think putting it in the projects forum would set too well, with the community, according to the forum rules.

However, when I use this on my woodworking projects, (the video above was just a quick demo), I’ll post in this blog thread somemore videos of different uses for it, to show more versatility of this jig.

I am busy doing clientel work on location, to be able to keep up with this blog, that’s why I put together this quick video demo, so as to not keep you guys hanging with this build, seeing you guys were very faithfully patient in following me in this build blog.

Thanks for all the encouraging complements you guys gave, in the process of this build, it helped me to stay on track to keep this build blog going when I had the spare time to work at it to accomplish it.

Thanks again.

Have your say...
