Hello, first of all Merry Christmas for everyone. I´ve been working on a mitre jack, made of quarter sawn beech with a quarter sawn maple screw. I also made the brass hardware to attach the screw to the moving part. I have tryed it and it works great. If you usually make a lot of mitres it is worth the time you spend making it. I hope you like it.
I made a description of the process in my blog, it is in spanish, but there are a lot of pictures, if somone is interested, here is the link: mitre jack process

Nicely done. Looks as if it would be handy for frame making.

Very nice Isra. I too made mine to do full blind dovetails but now I find I use it for many other things.
Did you make the back side exactly 90 degrees. If you did it serves to cut/plane square ends as well.
