Topic tags/keywords: humor jig question

I can’t believe we are this high (#16) already. Thanks to all that are keeping this going.

OK you mugs, you have 48 hours …. What is it ?

ANSWER : This jig is to support a box lid and base while sawing slots for slot hinges. I put the work piece up against the blade. then I put a 1/2” piece of wood between the jig and the fence. I luck down the fence. This enables me to advance the work piece until it bottoms out at 1/2” every time. UPDATE I get these from Woodcraft and they are really called barbed hinges.

Now that I looked at this again, I don’t see a perch- so the bird cage thing is out.

How about an “extra” hand device. You clamp it in the bench vice and it holds up one end of a long piece of stock.

Double sided or single sided shelf, which ever way you turn it around. OR, maybe a temporary butt rest. LOL
