I decided to make a screw advance box joint jig. I bought some plywood and the hardware. It came from a plan I found on the internet. I used 3/4 plywood, 1/8 hardboard, 3/8 – 16 threaded rod, 3/8 nuts and washers. I spent a while doing this project. I wanted to make sure it was done right.

It took some tweaking to get it right. The plan on the internet was for a different saw. I dry fitted, checked it, adjusted it, dry fitted again and so on. I am just clamping it to my crosscut sled, which is a different project that I will post.

Thanks. I plan to build a non traditional bread box out of some poplar using this for the joinery.

The link is: http://www.leestyron.com/lynnjig.php. You will have to figure out which one you want to build. There are more links on the pages for different design ideas.

Update: I bolted the jig to the crosscut sled. I figured that it would make it more stable.
