This is my spline cutting jig. I made this to ride along my fence without any binding. With the extra large back plate I can easily mount clamps to the unit to hold my frames in place for easy cutting. Once the jig was made I ran it through the saw and made note of the measurement on the fence. I wrote that down on the jig so I know what to set my fence at every time I use the jig. Thanks for looking.

It looks like a practical jig. Good work.

Cool!!

Glad to know I’m not the only one who records the jigs “ueser data” on the jig itself.

I’ve been wanting to make one of these for some time. I’ve been trying to figure out how to do it without the bridge binding on the fence in moist/damp/wet weather. I have had enough problems with wood runners in my life. Did you apply a finish ? Looks like a great jig.

No finish, but I did coat my fence with paste wax. I have never had binding issues ever.
