Table saw tapering jig
why I needed a circle jig…
One morning my daughter said to me she needed a wedge to hold the door when she took out her bicycle, so I went to the work shop to make her one, only this time I decided to do it safe… So I made a jig for tapering cuts – no more freehand cutting.
Some scrap ply and by the help of my new circle jig with a fast and easy angle set.
1. Jig in action…
2. The parts.
3. Mounting the angle setting, after that I set the angles and made marks for each five degrees, but you can also glue a cheap angle on top and get it in one degree steps.
4. A threaded insert for the adjustment screw.
5. A stop that can be easily changed when cut into.
6. This is how it works.
Hope it can be to some inspiration,
