Good day

I would like to share with you my way to make a T square.

I resized the pictures so they will fit in the somewhat narrow page and I hope that they are not too small.

I hope that this is the correct place to post it, if not, please tell me.

Regards
niki

Thank you for sharing. Very interesting. I think I am going to have to get another one of those squares.

You’re gonna fit right in here. Keep the jigs coming. I , for one, can sure use the ideas.

Thanks for the post Niki. That’s a great idea. One question I have is, do you think it’s necessary to have the two triangles be machined to thousands of an inch tolerance. The reason I ask is because I have an Empire speed square from Menards but I don’t know how accurate it is and machined triangles cost a lot of money.

Great ideas Niki. It is nice to have another perspective on how to get the jigs and tools we want/need. Sometimes we do not even think of making them ourselves.

Keep up the good work.

Thanks Niki.
I’ve also found that plastic triangles are great for setting my saw for angle cuts.

Thank you for your kind replies

Dick Cain
You are correct, I’m also using it for angle cuts, in fact, I’m using one of them on the 45° cutting sled (or lately the “Copy” of it), I’ll post it soon.

Thanks

Could you post these pictures again? They have been deleted by Photobucket.
