A mitre jack is a precision tool that has many uses: http://www.leevalley.com/us/newsletters/Woodworking/5/5/collection.htm It gives the kind of precision that power tools are hard to match. Build it and you can finetune your mitres, squares and angled pieces with (almost) perfection.
I made one out of scrap woods (cherry & maple) and a press screw: http://www.leevalley.com/en/wood/page.aspx?p=31138&cat=1,43838,43845,31138
In place of the mortise and tenon joint commonly used for this type of build, I used the Dominos for the slider. And for the tight room, I reached for this screwdriver set: http://www.leevalley.com/en/wood/page.aspx?p=32210&cat=1,43411,43417
Thanks for dropping by.
