Inspired by the ShopNotes thin strip jig I made this, with a modification. a DRO.
Every woodworker knows that ripping thin strips on the right side of the blade (between blade and fence) is no good.
Not sure about how dangerous it actually is, I try to avoid it.
But when ripping multiple strips at a consistent thickness, from a piece of lumber, this ripping jig comes in handy.
I have been using this for a while, and have had good results with it, but I felt something was lacking.
I always had to make a test cut, then use my digital calipers to measure, and do this for every adjustment until I reached desired thickness.
So I added yet another of those Car Tyre Tread Depth Gauge Caliper I got of ebay for 5 bucks, and It made a world of difference.
Just wish they would have been abslolute calipers, meaning they would go back to last measurement when powered on. instead they start at 0.00mm, so I do not get my absolute Origo, but it helps me fine adjust my strip thickness.
Thanx for watching
