Thin strippers
for short and long strips

Here a couple of jigs I made yesterday, some call them rippers, but I find that kind of barbaric (Jack the Ripper) and since you can strip in all directions, not just rip and often in fiber boards also, then strippers must be the right name – even if some may lift an eyebrow, but as we say in Denmark ‘for the pure, every thing is pure’. ;-)

The stripper jig with the handle is for short strips and the one mounted on the gauge is for long strips, specific for a Festool table, but same princips can be used on any table saw.

The post is from the blog: where you can read much more.

1. The short stripper on the wall, next to half the man he used to be and my daughter laughing.
2. The stripper running up the fence.
3. Sawing the rabbet.
4. Backing strips.
5. Saving the handle on the band saw.
6. The long strip jig for the Festool table.

Hope it can be to some inspiration, perhaps even a thin stripper…

Great idea Mads and beautifully executed. The short version looks a lot safer than the one you had originally. Now they will always be to hand and you can strip with confidence, although I would recommend wearing clothes when cutting wood.

Give my regards to Mathilde.
