Built the Stumpy Nubs table saw finger joint jig. It works well. Made two minor modifications: mounted the threaded rod in shaft collars in wood brackets rather than the strap hold down brackets suggested which raised it up a bit; used set screws on the nuts on the end of the rod to allow for adjustments; and put in a hole in the carrier box to allow for a hold down clamp to hold small pieces.

The only problem I had with the clamp as first finished was trouble in holding smaller pieces in the jig. The single hole on the left of the carriage allowed me to put in a bolt to which I then added a hold down clamp. Works like a charm.

Joints come out nicely even and tight. Have not tried other sizes yet.

I agree, now if I can just get done with my 5 other lifetimes of projects I will squeeze it in!!!!

Nice work though, looks nice and seems to produce some great looks joints.
