YEP I’M MAKING JIGS AGAIN

This is a tablesaw resawing jig that I adapted from Charles Neil in his “Resawing” DVD from several years ago. I posted a blog if you’re interested.

It’s pretty simple, made from available materials in my shop.

I have several toggle clamps, which can be mounted to the MDF panel.

Thanks for checking this out, I have a few more coming.
As always, your comments, criticisms,, and humor is always welcome!

Nice rig! What are the toggles for?

I assume that since you are resawing on the table saw you don’t have anything to resaw that is more than 3 inches. Or then it would be over to the band saw.

If you are ever going to make tenons you can modify this rig easily for that task. Later brother.

Uncle Stumpy,

This jig is to reduce tension and to as Charles says “sneak up on it.” the technique requires several passes at a blade set from low to medium to high. The piece is run through on both sides to get double the saw blade capacity. It can then be quickly run through the bansaw for the remaining plow out.

Thanks!

Unclestumpy,

The toggles are to lock down the piece on the back board while relieving the tension through the cutting method I just described.

Nice jig Tom. That is something I need to resaw thick yet small hardwood scraps I saved (as usual). Well, I think I still have a bunch of 5/8” plywood scraps I salvaged at the back of a shopping center ! Thanks for posting this jig that I would otherwise have missed from Charles Neil. By the way, I have in mind a jig to develop to resaw long board securely at the table saw, which I will share when done. Meanwhile, it’s time for a coffee break. By the way, I drink Italian Espresso beans that I daily crush and drop in boiling water a large bodum for about 10 minutes. :)

Best,

Serge

Very nicely constructed jig—I especially like the fact that you took the time to finish it.

Klaus,

I’m not slacking off Boss! LOL! I just built my chain saw mill bench that I designed and Murphy helped put together. These are my preperations. Also helps when I take my time and use you as a model. Trying to improve my patience and practice habits? Oh yeah still have to see my clinical clients. LOL!

Thanks!

Serge,

Thanks! Didn’t put the lock down toggles on it yet as I told Klaus. But I’m not woodworking more that 50% of the time at present.

The resawing dvd was actually my suggestion to Charles, but I don’t think it’s still out there.

Might do a resawing blog since this one is not on YouTube. It might be in his files on his home page?

If people are interested I might do a show and tell?

John,

Thanks. Humidity is pretty high and I want to use these jigs and helping tools more than once. LOL! I’m also practicing and learning efficiency in my finishing.

Cool jig. I think this will help ease slicing through all that lumber. Those toggles will be a good idea. Nice job.
