Topic tags/keywords: question jig

I got this jig looking thing as part of purchase of table saw,jointer,planer and chisel mortiser. The guy who sold it inherited this and has no idea what it is. He also had a shaper which I did not purchase. Anyone has an idea what this could be? Router jig?

Thanks.

It looks to me like some sort of routing jig. Possibly for routing hinges.

If you don’t know what it is, you don’t need it.

I agree with all three answers above lol Well except for the hinges part, unless it was for some funky strap hinges.

It’s a whatchamacallit.

No…definitely a doohickey. It’s used to hold a garbage can down.

I beg to differ. Doohickey’s are almost always made with melamine undersides. I will concede that it may be more of a thingamajig rather than a whatchamacallit.

Does anyone know where to get plans for this? I’m still working on the AutoCad tutorial. Haven’t yet covered thingamajigninja manufacturing yet.
