Hi, after looking at almost all the nice jig projects in here I came up with my adapted version of a thin strip table saw jig, I had all the parts already, just waiting to be converted into something useful.

Thanks for all the inspiration :)

Very nice! I used a similar version (no where NEAR as nice) to cut strips of decrotive banding.

Great use of spare materials, this is a useful jig when it comes to ripping thin strips and helps with repeatable accuracy as well. Your design looks rock solid and yet looks simple to copy with good results. Thanks for the post and into my favs it goes, Be safe !

What is the spacing between the blade and the base of your jig ?
Any thoughts on replacing the wingnut with a shop turned knob ?
Is that painted Aluminum angle or what is the guide made from ?
I like the way you secured the bearing nut from turning : )
Of all of the thin strip jigs posted to date , I think this is the most simply done and well made : )

Hi dusty56, let’s see:

- From the blade to the bearing: 1/8” distance, can increase the slot on the opposite side to get even closer. Actually I went too far so just added a couple of dowels to get back a little, don’t want the bearing touching the blade.

- Not enough tools yet for a turned knob, but just got some star knobs from rockler, maybe later :)

- guides are some clear aluminum angle leftovers + chromed wood screws

- yeah, that bearing won’t go anywhere with the extra toughness

Thanks for your comment!

What is the spacing between the blade and the base of your jig ? Looks to be about 2 or 3 inches in the picture , or is that adjustable as well ?
Thanks : )

Thanks for posting so many pictures. I have seen this type of jig before but couldn’t figure out exactly how to use it. The pictures helped me finally understand.

Nice job.

Dusty56: you almost got it!, 3 1/4 inches from the blade to the base, not sure how I got that figure, I guess it felt right.
This position is not adjustable as the runner fits in a dado on the base, a little compromise to keep it sturdy enough, also it keeps the base parallel to the blade, not sure this helps but looks good.

YoungestSon: I’m glad the pics helped, go build your own now ;)
