Gathered up some scraps to put this together. Works great. Cuts almost paper thin. Just keep it flat and square when building. Mount to the table with clamps.

Did you have to adjust for drift? I see you have the fence set up as well. I use a Delta and I am unable to adjust the fence for drift…just wondering how you did this.

Hawaiilad, The fence is inline parallel to the blade. I use it to line the jig to the blade. Once that’s done and the jig is clamped down its no longer needed. I just leave it there for extra support. I was having a little trouble with drift but found that it was with the blades I was using. I changed it to an Olson All-Pro Band Saw Blade 105” x 1/2” x.025” x 3H. Because its only 3 teeth per inch its a little rough cut but easily sanded. I run it a bit tighter with the tension and feed the material slow as well. No drift
This pic you can see that the blade is even with fence top to bottom. Its set @ 1/8 inch. Make sure that the bearings are adjusted to the blade correct, tension is tight. I believe that drifting is in the blade and its setup more so than the fence.
By the way checked out yours and rrdesigns projects pages, both do some beautiful woodwork.
Thanks for looking

I have built a tall fence at one time, but again I was having problems with the drift…I did have a good blade installed and thought I it tight, but perhaps this was the problem. I have read before that adjusting the fence to the blade will take away drift…but the fence I use can not be adjusted this way, so I thought a different fence would fix the problem…perhaps not. Thanks for the info. I will make sure everything is adjusted and try it again with the tall fence
