The jig was made from plan available from “Stumpy Nubs. com” (A great site for woodworkers). To his basic plan, I added the feature of the dowels and labeling of their use.
Construction is primarily Baltic birch Plywood, a biscuit jointer from Harbor Freight, a pair of drawer slides and some misc. hardware.
The front table can be raised, shimmed with a pair of dowels and locked in place to assure the biscuit blade is at the center of the project wood piece. This also allows for slotting a longer piece of wood using the jointer blade.
The table on the front face indicates the dowel diameter required for a given project wood thickness. The pairs of dowels are stored in the block on the LHS of the jig as shown in photo’ 3.
Photo’s 5 and 6 show the holder for the Jointer and the handle for moving it forwards and back. Photo 6 shows the return spring that pulls it back.
All in all a nice weekend project that is a great addition to my shop.
