This s a fixture I hurried to make to use my new lock miter bit. I needed it for rouitng the parts for my dart box.
It is made from poplar that is veneered with mahogany. It is a table leaf I got from LJ Doug Scott ( Thank you Doug!!)
It has a T slot screwed on so the left clamp can be adjusted easily for different widths\

The 5th shot is a piece of that table leaf used to shim the fence out the same amount as the fixture for cutting the horizontal piece. The last shot is the joint it makes. This was one of the first shots before it was zeroed in to exactly match.

I couldn’t figure it out from the first picture—which parts move, and which stay stationary. The rest of the photos explained it… :) Quite a nice jig!

anything that promotes safety is a very good thing, and your jig looks very safe, and precise. Excellent post.

Wow. I’ve never seen that flip clamp used with a track slider. I’ve also never been able to get that bit to work, lol. Excellent build!

Excellent! I’ve got one of those bits and I’ve never gotten around to trying it out and wasn’t exactly sure how it was supposed to work. After seeing your new super jig it now seems very clear. Thanks for sharing.

Dan. I have bigger lock miter it and I had it for years and it never worked good for me until I built my new miter table with the high fence. That made the difference in holding that vertical piece solid enough to get a good cut with no movement away from the fence….................Jim
