Generally, I prefer making jigs that are ez on the eyes but I was in a hurry so here’s a cut n go version using leftover scraps. Accurate but no eye candy.

Nice Jigs, it’s fun to make your own but not always easier.
So…was your table saw miss aligned any? I have a Ridgid TS also so I’m just curious

Yep, Lexan Polycarbonate. it’s not ez to work with. kind of brittle but I like the way jigs look.
In this case, I didn’t see a point in spending 95 $$$ on a Oneway Multi Gauge.

Was your table saw miss aligned any?

No, it’s at 0.000 with 3 different saw blades and calibration disk.
When I got the saw about year ago, I modified the back trunnions increasing the left and right bolt holes and removing the useless middle cam. And spend few hours calibrating everything.
I’ve used the dial mounted on my miter gauge and few precision squares.
Few months ago, just for heck of it I added the PALS but it wasn’t necessary. I Just like the idea of PALS if I have to recalibrate at some point.
