Dewalt Jobsite saw needed a fence, to replace that flimsy stock one. A few pieces of scrap, and a few screws. Factory edge on plywood, with a square corner. Laid on the saw alongside a miter slot. Added a cleat of oak scrap, and screwed the clamped pieces together. Cleat is sized to ride on the saw’s fence rails. A piece of 1×2 pine was added as a fence, using the factory edge as a guide, as I screwed it in place from the underside. A pair of “C” clamps ho;d the fence in place during the cut. Cut fairly straight, no kickback found. 1×2 can be replaced with a taller fence, if needed.
This also can guide routers doing dado cuts. Just clamp the fence in the right place, and route away. This also can serve as a speedsquare, to guide Circular saw cuts.
Price for this “jig”? About 20 minutes of my time.
