Just got the Incra TL LS for my Sawstop and wondered what jigs you guys have used on the fence?

I have the same setup, but have not used any jigs on my fence as of yet.

I recently purchased JessEm Clear Cut Stock Guides (a sort of roller-based featherboard), but I don’t think that’s what you’re talking about here.

Can you give us some examples so we know what you were after?

JeffP,
What you installed on the fence is the type of jig/product I’m looking for. Pretty much anything that can be attached to the channel that would be of benefit.

Putttn, there is actually one other very important thing, since you mentioned sawstop.

I recently found a dealer on CL that was selling medium sized pieces of thick HDPE. I bought a piece long enough that I could make several sacrificial fences out of. The chunk I bought is 1 inch thick, an inch longer than the depth of the saw, and wide enough to make 3 or 4 fences.

I haven’t cut one down and set it up on the fence yet, but given that you really don’t want aluminum anywhere near the blade on a SawStop saw, I figure this is an important “jig” to attach to the fence. ;)

I have a router bit that will cut a T slot similar to the one in the fence, so I plan to add this feature to my sacrificial fence so that I don’t loose that feature of the incra fence.

Perfect…that’s what I’m looking for. I’m sure there’s a bunch of jigs/products that could be attached to that channel and finding out what guys have come up with is a great time saver. At 71 I can’t be wasting time!!

“At 71 I can’t be wasting time!!”

Bill, this provoked a chuckle…but I wouldn’t worry about it.

None of us can waste any time…that would pre-suppose that any of us has any time.

Quite to the contrary, time has us…and she will do with us as she pleases.

Amen to that Jeff. It just seems that at this age there is a little more “urgency” that seems to creep in and things that you put off earlier in life aren’t as easy to justify now.
Banging around on the web has brought a few to my attention and it will be fun getting it ready to do some cutting.
