I found the plan for this jig from Wood mag. Tablesaw Jigs, Tip & Ideas 2009. Again most of the material come direct from the cut off bin which is always nice. For great repeat accuracy making thin strips from 1/16 to 1 1/2 strips. I made two one for the table saw and band saw. Notice the brass screw so that you can zero in on the scale. The jig should be remove from the miter slot when making a cut. Nice little jig that should get plenty of uses. Thanks for viewing …Blkcherry

good idea – i use a large jig that clamps to the table – this is small and looks handy

It looks like the screw is almost used the same as a featherboard – very near the blade. Is that so? Isn’t it dangerous?

The jig is not used in the cutting process it only use to set the next cut. You must remove the jig from the miter slot during the cutting operation. 1st. reference the stock to the screw head…2nd lock down the fence…3rd remove the jig from the slot…4th make the cut…5th repeat steps 1 thur 4 very accurate and repeatable hope this helps mtkate

Beautiful board , BC : )
This is my first time reading that the jig must be removed before making the cut(s).
Is it because it involves a screw instead of a roller bearing as a guide ?
thanks

Nice professional looking jig no doubt. Like Dusty56, I’d have to add a roller bearing as a guide so the jig could stay on the table for the cut, then index forward with the fence for each successive cut that follows.

Dusty and David, I wish I’d had seen the roller bearing guide version before I made these jigs, but never the less it really cut consistent thickness cuts which is the means in this operation. I build one for my band saw and table saw and maybe one day I’ll retro fit them with the better idea of the bearing guide but until then I’m still in operation thanks for commenting and happy woodworking guys….BC
