Table Saw Jig—For using the Fence and Miter Gauge at the same time for Safety cutting pieces with length longer than width. Piece #1 is exactly 1” thick so it is easy to add the 1” to your cutting dimension. Start by planning piece #1 down to exactly 1” thick, then plane piece #2 to 1/2” thick or slightly less than this dimension is on your fence. Then cut piece #3 to 2-5/8” wide. (Note all pieces are 8” long. but this dimension suite to fit). Drill a 5/16 inch hole at location shown for the T-Slot bolt into pieces #2 & #3. Cut a recess for the T-Slot bolt in piece #2. Put all together with T-Slot bolt in place and add glue between piece #1 & #2. Clamp and let dry. The Jig is easy on and off. Just remember to add 1” to all dimensions when using this Jig. After using a few days I decided to add 2 5/16 dowels to keep part 3 in place and also I added a spring between part 2 & 3. And for you die hard I added a picture of another way of achieving the same purpose.

I’m confused? It slides on the fence?

No it Clamps on Fence, You set the length of Cut on it and as you slide miter forward the stock slides off of jig and you free cut (but to correct length) and you have no worry about kickback, See photo 2.

Looks like this simple jig would be effective. Good thinking.

Malcolm, this is a very nice jig and is certainly a fine addition to your shop.

I have those clamps which come in handy for what you described, also for mounting my tall fence, and for a sacrificial fence to my TS fence.
