Looks great, how’s it working for ya? Do you add any sort of material to the bottom for extra grip?

I’m in the process of trying mouse pad rubber out to see how it performs. I may also add an adjustable heal to the jig. Any bottom material suggestions?

Just maybe the non-slip rug underlayment they sell at the box stores. Did you use the plans from the LJ post or just wing it?

I just looked at pics of the original and winged it. Tried it today and it worked perfect with mouse pad.

Nice work on the replicant.
Due to its unavalibiliy in Australia in 2012 I made my own, I used anti slip material from the kitchen supplies.
Which is possibly the same material as Bigfoots project, and works well for me.
Mind you its not the work of art as is yours and previous ones, as it was built from complete frustration in my attempts to purchase/import one four years ago.

I am pleased to report they are now available in Aust hoorah! ... albeit very expensive.

Hey if it works and helps you make something pretty, it doesn’t have to be pretty! Good job!

Perhaps try using some of that porous drawer/shelf liner. Some woodworkers use a similar product to use as a pad to sand on.

Buggy, that is a very interesting jig and you’ve certainly done a fine job on it. Congratulations and welcome to Lumberjocks.
