Been ripping plywood sheets for my shoe cabinet projects and this jig is a great help in cutting down plywoods into different widths. Made of 1/2” leftover plywoods, 3/8” bolt and a T-nut as the lock. A one peso coin is placed under the bolt to prevent marking or damage on the sliding t-square. There was little space left for the knob because it gets in the way of the motor when I plunge the saw so the actual is a very small round knob, different from the plan. It accomplished 2 cutting lists in less than ten minutes using only 2 F-clamps. The only time I used the pencil is when I wrote the cutting lists.

Here’s the Youtube Video of my jig.

I temporarily became dislexic because I thought the title said it was a jig for your saw to cut circles. Nice project, thinking I should make one myself.

Can’t wait to build this. Too old to wrangle full sheets on the table saw. This will be a time saver for sure. Thanks!
