This Jig I made with the construction of large projects in mind (see BOX in my Workshop page and my Hi-Fi Facelift project), so it is large and robust but will still handle smaller operations. I incorporated an adjustable bar to hold the workpieces in place
This shows the underside and the Channel Guide(?).
When I bought this Combination Tablesaw (Zingen Mia 6) 25 years ago it had a sliding table mechanism for cross-cutting. It was very limited in movement and adaptability. I decided therefor to replace this with a ‘normal’ American style surface with a channel for Jigs etc. Since I had no standard channel width I decided to create one which suited me, and settled on a widely available rectangle section aluminium (about 1 Cm x 2cm)
I used this to make the channel, and used it as the Guide for all my jigs.
I made this attachment for the Jig to cut angled joints for a slanted legged stool I made
