Needed to make a spline jig for some clocks I wanted to make. Found this on Google images. I forgot who deserves credit for this sorry. I added a 2nd layer of wood to it so I can replace it when it becomes worn out. It works real well for its more than simple design. Used some 1/2 inch mdf laying around and counter sunk the screws.

Thx for looking,

That seems a lot simpler for me…less complicated than some others I’ve seen. I’ll have to make me one!

I made one of these for a box that I was building some time ago. The problem I’ve had is making sure that the fence part is 90 deg to the table. How did you set it up to make sure that everything was true and plumb before you screwed it all together?

I made sure it was square first after cutting it, then clamped it to my fence on the table saw. Using the table and fence for assy. with the screws above the fence and marking the bottom so when it put those in I made sure it didnt move. Hope this helps shhot me an email if more info needed. Good luck .
