Topic tags/keywords: jig joint box table saw lead screw advance plan sketchup

Just saw this through a link over at FWW, and thought this was more than worthy of sharing here:


P.S. there is also a FANTASTIC Sketchup model of the jig – one of the nicest models I’ve seen in a long time. check it out to see what you can do with sketchup in terms of presentation, and documentation! worth checking!

Wow, it’s by Matthias Wandel, too! I first stumbled into things made by him in the late 90s. He’s an extremely prolific woodworker/inventor/engineer/programmer who slaps together pretty amazing contraptions, including a CD changing machine (that he can access from the internet), a pipe organ, a computer controlled table saw jig, and a camera made from a flatbed scanner. The things that first drew me to his site were a Lego plotter printer he built in high school (‘87), and his Fischertechnik-built 1-pin dot-matrix printer and drum scanner.

His homepage is funny, because he’s done all of these amazing things, but they’re all sort of hidden in the very simple page. Even the lego/fischertechnik stuff above I had to dig around for :)

Also – nice box joint jig!

pretty sweet, I like the look of finger joints. These joints are strong and look good. so basically you count how many turns you do and it moves over? I like the stability of the jig itself. I’ll have to make one. thank for posting
