This is actualy a jig but couldn’t tell how to post this under “Jigs”

Yup, a paint roller in a Workmate. This actually works well. I have used it for 2x’s and also for some peg board I had to cut. My shop is to small for a table saw outfeed table so any large panel, plywood cutting will have to wait for a warm day.

Now, that’s nifty and an application I will definitely put to work, also having a small shop

Great idea and I truly understand the “wait for warm weather”. It gets really hot here in the summers, so I try to work early when it has to be outside…oh wait, I always have to cut outside. No power in the shop and no garage.

Brilliant! Supports the workpiece as it goes through milling. Serves as a dust remover/wood grain protector!

Cool idea Pie. BTW you accomplished posting it under “jigs” when you tagged it with the word jig. That’s the way LJs rolls. ;2)
