Another great jig Izzy. You are boiling over with creativity and I think it is wonderful that you are sharing it with other woodworkers.

Few Woodworkers have arrived on LJ’s with the impact you have my Friend…
Great Work, Nifty Jigs, and I get the feeling you’re just warming up; probably have more than one bag of tricks!
Good for You! (And really good for all of us!)
Keep ‘em coming!! :)

This is a jig I need. I watched both videos. I like your style of keeping them short and to the point.
I’m not sure I understand how a 1/4” screw attached to the larger knob screwed down keeps the runner from moving….......................

@ redryder—the 1/4” screw attached to the larger knob screwed down acts as a set screw to lock the slider in place in the dovetail slot is how I understand it.
