Good day

I had to rip a few small pieces for some router table aid/fixture and I would like to share with you the method.

I’m using an Auxiliary fence clamped to the rip fence…now, when I’m saying Aux fence…. give me some good width say, 4”~6”....you don’t like to “drive” in congested areas, do you…

Before clamping the Aux fence, give it a pass through the blade just to make sure that its parallel and consistent in width.

The sled is made of 5/16” (8mm) “Floor panel” but of course, you can use plywood or MDF.
It’s very easy to make it, just a runner glued/screwed under the board…you don’t need a fence but you can add one and use the sled as “multi purpose”...as I do…

As you will see, I’m holding both hands on the trowel and that, doesn’t leave too many hands or fingers to be used as a “Backer board” for the workpiece…saves a lot of money…(no need SS :-) )...

Regards
niki

Thank you so much for your kind words

I’m working now on another method that can be used with a normal sled just by adding some kind of small fixture….it’s in the “kitchen” now and when it will be “cooked” and “tasted”, I’ll post it…

Thanks again
niki

Great tutorial, thanks! I need to cut very thin pieces and it would sure be helpful to use your method. I’ve been carefully measuring and then scribing each piece prior to cutting. Sheesh…
