never used one

but it looks decent and sturdy enough

angle work might be a problem
and backup sacrifice wood a must
for blow-out with those cutters

I had one of those for awhile. I hardly used it. It was a very
solid tool.

I got it from a guy who used shapers a lot. For the table saw
it’s kind of overkill.

200 bucks seems a little pricey to me. I would try to make one.

I have a nagging wife and a table saw that won’t stay in adjustment. How would that help me?

I have used a tenoning jig like AZMac gave a link to and the brand I use is great. I’m not sure about the one your showing us Beth .

I looked at the tenon jig. Seems like the right angle has more possibilities because of the horizontal option. Not sure about the size limitations, though. I’m really just exploring ways to make feeding stock safer now that I am stepping up to a 5HP monster.
