I was tired of picture frames and boxes having small gaps at the 45’s. Makes me crazy. So I decided it was time for a jig that has adjustable wings on both sides. I can now dial in 45’s with very tight joints. The new jig is safer than my old one as the blade gets buried in the center rail. The hold downs are adjustable in and out to accomodate varied stock width and height.
I may change out the SS 1/4×20 adjustment bolts for machine screws at some point and make a stop block and extensions for the wings to handle longer stock cuts. The entire carriage assembly dismounts for maintenance/upgrade.
Thought this might help somebody out there (as you all have helped me). Many thanks.
