A 2” hinge a couple of bolts and a couple pieces of scrap. Tried it out and it works fine. I like simple low cost solutions.

Wow! Much nicer than the piece of ply I used with 3-pieces of scrap pinned onto it for my TS. I did just that this past week and got by, but I sure like your solution much better. My thoughts on this are that when one makes such a nice jig for a particular specialty task, then one is more apt to use that jig more often.

I like this. A lot. I bet you could even put hash marks on the slider, marking 1—10 degrees for easy reference.

Very cool! Looks similar to the one I built a while back, but yours is nice, I like the added piece on the end to act as a hold. It might be worth it to place a couple toggle clamps on the jig as well to really get that “locking hold,” you know what I mean? Keep those fingers safe.

Thanks for the comments guys. I saw a video on WWGOA on setting a jig like this up. The tips made it very simple to adjust and use.
