These are a couple of maple plywood fixtures I made today out of necessity to get a couple of jobs done.
The first one is a Band Saw Angle Plate to hold this irregular slab of wood so I can cut a parallel ( & sort of flat) piece for an upcoming project. It is glued and nailed together and just long enough to support the part through the saw. I wound up cutting from both sides so I could clamp the part to the plate for the whole cut. I did not want an screws in the finished slab.
The second one is a 45 degree holding fixture for use in the milling machine to hold a part while I milled a 45 degree bevel on an insert for a table saw. The fixture is screwed and glued together
This insert is going on the Craftsman saw we have in the park in Az. The original steel ( tin) insert that comes with it is too low and not close enough to the blade. This one will be 1/2” aluminum.
