This is a simple tenon jig I made as an experiment, and I was amazed at how well it works. Obviously, the angle is not adjustable, but for simple tenons, this thing is very functional. My table saw has non-standard slots, so I made this to ride against the fence. I used some scraps I had lying around and a clamp I bought at HF for about a dollar. I had to make sure all of my cuts were dead on square, which took some trial and error, but I eventually got it, and it has held up over time.

Great job! I was hoping to make the same concept after seeing the Shopsmith version. You can buy the handle itself. Great work!

Many times the simple side is so easy to miss, you found it and it works. I may have to try one of these
