My old saw guide has served me well, but I’ve always wanted a guide that would eliminate the need to take the work to the table saw for final sizing.
I started with a “T” track and “T” bar from Peachtree. The first pic is gauging the “T” track thickness.
I routed the 3/4 ply in 3 steps.
Had to gauge the width, too.
And see how much adjustment was necessary
Ahhh, the 1/8” key way key just fits. I’ll lay the key way gauge between the ply and bring the fence to it. Thereby widening the dado.
Pretty decent fit.
Here is a short length of the “T” bar attached to my trusty old Skil Worm Drive.
This pic shows the “T” bar in the “T” track. Next step is to epoxy the track into the dado and take a test drive. That’ll be after the epoxy arrives. Rural living is great, but it does have some drawbacks. :-)
