ROUGH CUT STRAIGHTEDGE CUTTING JIG WITH KNOBS II (THE NEW AND IMPROVED VERSION!)

My first jig was nottotally well thought out. Oh Dah! Couldn’t cut slabs wider than seven inches. LOL! Took Two of my fellow LJ’s Bob/ Grizz and Andy/GFADVM suggestions on this version and added some pretty knobs in place of wing nuts! Also raised the height by using longer carriage bolts.

For more information I posted a blog.

Sorry,

I have a push mower. The truck is a 1990 4×4 with a snow plow. I do love the mountains though.

Any case going to the shop/studio to figure out what Murphy has done while I was gone?
