I built this jig to assist in cutting thin strips for inlaying. Basically it is two fences mounted on 1/2” plywood. There are two runners screwed to the plywood underneath and fitted in the mortise slots of the tablesaw. The front fence is made using threaded rod, tee niuts,lock and flat washers, while it’s rear stationary assist fence uses the same threaded rod with nuts,washers and wing nuts. The front fences adjustment feature allows me to cut any thickness needed and works superbly. If you decide to make something similar. I offer one sincere word of caution. Cutting any very small pieces on the tablesaw, can be very dangerous. I pay particular attention to the cut off pice and use very tiny push stick devices. However with due caution, this thing works very well for its’ intended purpose. Hope it may be of use,or give you some ideas to try as well.
