Topic tags/keywords: jig

I’ve looked around for one of these for a while. Does anyone have a kit laying around that they would be willing to sell? I can do everything with homemade jigs except for the 1 deg. taper.

thanks!

They are no longer accepting orders (for an indefinite period of time), unfortunately.

Are there similar strength alternatives? I was thinking maybe I could just cut straight splines into the rabbeted joints on my TS, but I am concerned about durability. Maybe I shouldn’t be?

These beehive boxes will weigh ~110lbs when full of brood and I don’t want them coming apart when working in the hives. Nothing worse than 60,000 upset ladies!

Glued and screwed, now I’m stuck.
