Just saw the article on this in the current Wood Magazine (Dec/Jan 2011/2012) and had to have it. I had a good sized piece of Ash scrap lying around that was perfect for the job. It wasn’t exactly clear from the article how the “adapter” was connected to the actual miter-guage. As you can see I imbedded (with epoxy) a couple of nuts into the adapter and simply attached the adapter to the miter-guage with machine screws. Works well. Put a little paste wax on the extension bar and then put one coat of Tung Oil Finish on the fence to give it a little protection.
Nice addition to my table saw, AT NO CHARGE!

This is way to nice to use on a table saw.

Nicely done Vic
Very well build and should be handy and easy to use .
Will certainly add precision on those repetitive cuts.

That’s beautiful, Vic. I’ve been browsing through this site 4,900+ posted project pages since Jan and stumbled across your post. I’m especially interested how minds work similarly but independently! And how old ideas resurface as “new”. As noted on my blog on my web site ( I’ve been using an almost identical construction since 1975. I’ve made it a shop standard and it is the basis for most of my jigs. Very handy. I build several long strips (6’)from poplar and dado a preliminary slot before routing the T. Then I just cut off what I need for a fence or jig part. Mine are not so pretty…
