Thin strips on Festool CMS tablesaw
jigs

Here two thin strip jigs I made yesterday, specifically made for my Festool CMS table saw.

They are made from standard aluminium profiles, these happens to fit the CMS, so I just cut into the profiles with the table saw and attached the ball bearings with bolts, that I sanded down in height of the heads.

So simple and fast to make, just ball bearings, profiles, washers, bolts and nuts . ;-)

You can see my other strip jigs, the thin strippers as I called them here: https://www.lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/129568


Pictures:
1. Strip jig 1 on the Festool CMS table saw.
2. Top close up on version 1 ball bearing.
3. Side close up on version 1 ball bearing.
4. Strip jig 2 on the Festool CMS table saw.
5. Side close up on version 2 ball bearings.
6. Side close up on version 2 ball bearings.

Hope it can be to some inspiration, perhaps even a thin strip jig.

Looking at the pic, I am of a mind that you need to move the fence on each cut? Is that correct?

I love that push hand, missing fanger and all. While fun, it is a reminder that stuff happens.

Hi there,
icemanhank, less is plenty. ;-)
therealSteveN, That push stick has become my favorite, because it makes me smile and think carefully at the same time. Yes one have to move the fence, but the strip jig acts as a stop, so it’s easy and fast. Here a video of a guy making a cool version for his ‘normal’ table saw, at the end of it you can see it in use. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iQafrYaSS-U
majuvla, it’s done in a split second, I spend app an hour for both, just playing around.
Jim Rowe, thank you Jim.
Thank you guys.

I like the push stick, Great reminder for safety. good jig, but what about boards that aren’t perfectly straight. is the bearing going to push the fence outward. the feather board seems to have more give to it.

Hi again,
Lew, thanks ;-)
pottz, it’s the idea of shearing, that are a big part of my motivation, that we learn a lot by giving away and when we try to explain, we learn deeper what we do. Big smile thanks.
Jim, thanks my old friend, just saw I have been around for ten years soon.
WoodenDreams, yes that push stick is a wonderful way to be reminded. :-) You straighten your boards first. Plane / joint the board on one side and then make a cut with the planed / jointed side towards the fence, after that, the board will be straight.
