This jig is used to cut precise thin strips of wood on table saw. The size of the strips is set by the jigs incorporated scale that can measure with ± 1/64” precision. This concludes the first jig build for testing the idea. This jig is using transversial scale for measurements that makes reading easy. That scale was abandoned around 18th century, since everyone switched to vernier scale. To read 1” measurement we read 4” dial and it is very easy on eyes. Th jig width is 5”

About The Channel
This channel is created to share my passion for woodworking and guide beginners into realizing the joy of this hobby. Woodworking is fun, inspiring and helps you to design, create and relax. You can pick up a piece of wood and create something out of it and the result is uplifting. You just created something valuable from piece of wood. The hobby is not cheap and sometimes it is less expensive to buy some piece of furniture then to make it. But this is only true for casual observer, your creations are like work of art, unique, custom and one of a kind. I hope you enjoy the videos and presented projects.

Great jig! I really like the scale, I’m getting to the point where I have a lot of trouble reading the fine ticks on rulers.

Thanks for posting,

Thanks, I like the scale size. It is 4” dial for measuring 1” and I don’t enjoy those fine markings on instruments. At first I was leaning on using Vernier scale but quickly dropped it for same reason. The movement came out nice as well and I enjoy using it every time. Thanks for the feedback
