There is a unique satisfaction that comes with making a jig. Most can be purchased and they are not always so expensive but whenever I use a jig that I made, I get a tiny bit more satisfaction from the project. I have been turning some thin spindles but the vibration was becoming a problem so I made this spindle steady jig for my Jet lathe. I purchased the wheels from Rockler ($1.99 each and free shipping) and used an Incra t track ($12). The rest I made from some spare plywood lying around the garage. The pinch bracket holds the rest rock solid. Thanks for looking.
