Kinda went a little off on this one. Had a simple spline jig for years, rested over the fence and worked fine, but as it was not adjustable, over the years the mouth just kept getting bigger and bigger.

I don’t know where I saw this design, heck it was probably here on LJ!!

-- Im so impressed with what people can do, and I wonder how they do it. Thats what keeps me doing it.

I, too, am wondering what the cutout on the fence is for.

At first I thought this was a tilting cradel sled but I guess the circular slot in the fence is for clamping the object to be cut .
Nicely done .

Thanks everyone for your comments. The slot is in fact for clamping. I wanted a high stable place for clamping larger objects, but also needed something for the small ones, so the slot was a natural. I have a little aluminum bench hold down that I use in there and it works great.

I forgot to mention I also scribed and drew a kerf line on the jig (red) which really helps when trying to line up the fence.
