Here’s my final version that I came up with after doing the over-thought version. I began with one that had an adjustable stop and all that but I gave it away. I like this one the best. When building it, use only glue, no metal fasteners. Dowels work if you feel you need them. The bottom plywood is not really needed but I had already built it that way. The next one prob. won’t have it. The backer board(bright blue) is just double-stick-taped in place. Square might work better and you could rotate it 3 times before replacement.
- Cheap (I’m talking about the jig, not me. Well, maybe me too.)
- Easy to build(after you give away the last one)
- Replacable backer board
- Works on ANY table saw
I’m mostly done with the days of building a jig to fit only one saw. I don’t always work in my own shop so I want something that is not tied to a specific saw. And if the jig gets too chewed up with having different locations cut, just make another one.
... Just keeping it as simple as I can.
Edit: The side plywood piece is not really transparent plywood. I used the regular(ie. dumpster diver) kind.
