A simple jig to keep my router on the straight and narrow when I need a straight line.
Construction is simple. You need a factory edge from a sheet of plywood. I know I am making the assumption that the factory edge is straight, and NO, it is not accurate to +/- .0005, but then again, neither am I. Glue the fence on square to the factory edge. This is the most demanding part of constructing this jig.
Voila, the jig is finished.
To use, place on a board that needs an edge to be sgtraight and square.
Clamp both ends, and no, Rockler did not pay me for a product placement ad.
Adjust a pattern bit in your router:
Run the router along the factory straight edge and you get a nice clean straight cut.
And it is Square!
