I don’t why I had to build this but I did. I really like it. a very fun project and very unique shooting board. suppose to be for mitering moldings and good for 45’s it says in the book it was a very popular tool at the time. I gussied mine up with a fancy piece to hold the screw in place. I hope you like it. its from the “How to make woodwork tools” by Charles H. Hayward

Nice mitre jack Steve. I recognized it immediately as I made one last year. It’s one of those things that you don’t think you’d use much but comes in handy all the time when you have one. I find that mine, when used with a Japanese style flush cut saw does such a good forty-five that I often don’t have to shoot it at all. Also you can use the back for perfect ninety degree angles.

Mine came from a Shop Notes plan but the concept is the same.

I love Hayward’s book and have made some planes from it. Here’s a link to it.

Have fun with Jack. He’s about to become your new best friend.

Mice mule-ear!
One of these is on my project list for next year.
I’m sure you’ll find a lot of uses for this accessory. Good build.

Very nice Shipwright, I love that handle design. I am starting a new project soon and I needed something like use for good 45’s. I can see where the ninety’s would be excellent in these too. I have a flush cut saw that would work perfect for this.
hansawgeek you will not be sorry for making one of these !

Outstanding mitre jack.

Geek I’m pretty sure a mule ear does not have a screw, you just hold your workpiece in place.

Here’s a Shop Notes link that shows the difference between a mitre jack and a donkey’s (mule’s) ear.

I’ve been thinking about it too Steve, just need more hours. Looks like a good rig.
