Thin strip jig.
I was tired of the hazard from back kick, and since I have been using a lot of thin strips lately, and will continue for a while, untill I finish my plane cabinets, I decided to make a jig.
I have seen a design in a style like this on the web, so id did not take a lot of thinking.
Just scrap MDF in the base, and some plywood for handle and top.
The base that goes into the blade are removable, so I can change it when it becomes tired.
I rounded the handle with my router, just for comfort.
It works perfectly, so I’m happy.
App. half a hours efford, and it’s well worth it.
The next one I will make with a base that can be changed without screws, since I have now to take care not to cut where thay are…
And for those who don’t know a jig like this, one of the real advantages of it, is that you push the board you are cutting towards the blade of the saw, so you only have to adjust the with of the cut once, this saves a lot of time and make very acrate results (if you start of right…).
Hope it can be at some inspiration,
