Well, not much here. Quick and dirty solution to cutting equal length metal dowels/pins.
The two dado cut grooves are equal to the rod size and the clamped on stop section is used to adjust the length of the cut. My router table jigsaw with metal cutting blade did the rest. And the drill press to polish the ends.

Neat!

I’d be interested in seeing how you mounted the jig saw to the router table insert.
