I needed some table saw upgrades and stumbled upon Drew Fisher

Drew has a YouTube channel as well that’s worth checking out.

I built the Thin Rip Jig because…well I need to rip thin strips of wood for banding, inlay and such. My old jig required moving the fence on the table saw too close to the saw blade. This Jig is 3.5” wide and works amazing well.

I engraved it and colored with a fine tip black sharpe and put a hole in the Tote for storing on a French Cleat.

I use a very similar design, but your version is better engineered, with moving parts and stuff.

Nice jig. I had landed on Fishers shop looking for something?? He does a good job.

Watched that video, and I too use that jig @10” wide, but mine just has the heel, probably like Brians. I really like that clamp idea. Sure is better than trying to hold the cut off piece once it starts getting skinny. Now I just stop when the hairs on my neck start twitching, and call the rest of the piece scrap.
