I made this jig to cut identical slots in 1/2” PVC.
It’s made from a piece of scrap 2×4 and a 3/4 dowel. There is a 3/4 hole drilled down to 1/4 of going through the 2×4. A 1 1/4 kerf is cut through the center of the base which also passes through the center of the 3/4 hole. A dowel was added as a handle.

To use the jig you just drop in a section of PVC pipe and push it through the table saw. I use the PVC and the dowel as handles. What you have is a 1” slot cut through the center of the PVC.
