I needed a jig to cut thin strips of wood on my table saw, so I looked on the web for some inspiration and made my own version of it. The jig is entirely made of 18mil furniture grade plywood and the form is brought back to basic. A 12mil dowel was used to attach a large diameter ball bearing. For measurement I use a reference line on the zero clearance insert plate. The jig is held steady in the T-track by a metal strip under the base plate. It works great, even without a ruler on the jig itself.

Very nice. I really like the bearing idea. That should help keep the wood moving without the extra pushing force.
