I using some extra time between projects to build jigs. This is a thin strip jig using an old bearing from a router bit. The piece used to hold it the miter slot was countersunk and cut to spread apart.

You will get some great use out of this. It even looks like the Rockler version.

I didn’t know about this type of jig until I saw this. It’s brilliant.
