If you remember the post “Cutting 2mm (5/64”) strips”
http://lumberjocks.com/topics/1401

I made some improvement.

I routed a 3/8” deep slot from almost the beginning to almost the end of the sled and that improved the vacuum holding power a lot.

I also added an adjustable pusher

Here are a few pics without any text….for a change

Great Niki!

It’s good to have you back again. I didn’t know if you’d return, since you are now a “celebrity” with your Wood Magazine notoriety ;^D

Thank you so much

TomFran
One “shop tip” does not make me a “celebrity”... :-)
To be a “celebrity”, I have to make a few videos, DVD’s and books and with my poorly equipped shop (only table saw and router table), it will never happen…

Actually, I’m now in my “Hibernation” (too cold to work in the garage) but as soon as the spring will come…my wife already have her “list” ready…...........I new that this new router will cost me :-)

Great fixture Niki. Don’t be too modest. Most of the rest of us are unpublished.

Thank you Rikkor

”Most of the rest of us are unpublished”

And according to the works that I’ve seen here, most of you deserves it more than I do.

I think that more that the jig itself, they liked the story behind…..”born in Bulgaria….lives in Poland”...
kind of “we are an international magazine”....

That is genius!!! I’ve pondered something like this before and wondered if it might work. Brilliant! I love it. Thanks for showing us.

Great revision Niki. I need to go figure out how you made your triangles. back to an older blog.

That is very clever.

Any reason why you just didn’t cut them on the waste side of the tablesaw? I’m able to repeatedly cut 1/32” strips on the waste side of the blade by simply moving the fence with each cut. With an Incra or Jointech fence, repeatability is not an issue either.

Still, very clever.

I think ultimate in repeatability is to not move the fence at all, but I see your point Schwing.

Niki, do I see a tail hook on that jig? I can’t tell for sure.

Thank you so much

schwingding
Personally, I don’t like to move the fence….I don’t have the Incra or Jointech…

Tom
Yes, there is tail hook (or as I call it – pusher) and it’s adjustable. You can see it almost on every pic it’s a piece of plywood with elongated holes (slots).
