My version of a strip ripping guide.
The fixture fits snugly in the miter slot and has a roller guide point.
I used a slotted piece of folding rule so I can have a calibrated setup.
The second picture is a bottom view. I epoxied the bolt for the wing-nut.

I need one of these tomorrow and I was trying to figure out the best and quickest way to make it. Thanks for saving me some head scratching. I will be using your design. Hope you don’t mind

That is really great, I’m going to make one. I have been trying to figure out the best way rip thin strips, and this is a winner.

Nicely done and fully adjustable…..good job.
I built a thin strip jig like this a year or so ago. Mine is very simular to yours, right down to the ball bearing guide. I am surprised how often I use it. It’s a very usefull jig to have in your tool inventory.
