The base and bar of this tapering sled are made of sturdy plywood. I used the fantastic new Bessey autoadjustable toggle clamps and customized the length of the clamping arm to my needs.
Its a solid jig that is safe and a joy to use.

Nice:
now throw the other one you made away.
I like how this one holds the material next to the jig and lets the sawn material go away from the blade safe and nifty.
Anyone who owns the others should make this one and throw the Rockler styled ones away,

PS: I love your other jigs too.

Really nice, well-detailed work. I’m confused by one thing: the adjusting slots that are perpendicular to the sawblade look like they’re straight and a fixed length apart. As the taper arm moves to different angles, the distance between the carriage bolts will vary – it seems like the taper arm would “jam up” as you try to adjust it. What am I missing here?

Looks like a nice jig, I guess I’m a little slow, can you tell me the function of the round knob on the end?
