Project Information

We often see tapering jigs to taper lumber at the table saw, but rarely to taper panels. Here's one.

A long runner, a 1/2" panel board, a coupling nut (or dowel), two support arms, few carriage bolts, knobs and fender washers, spay adhesive and fine grit sanding paper are required, what I'm sure anyone has in the shop.

As shown, the arms are set and adjusted according to the cuts and the dimensions of the panels to be tapered. On the lower right corner, the pin (coupling nut or dowel) is crucial!

Do you like it?

Thank you all. I hope one can be useful (read safe) for you too.

@MonteCristo: I thought you were French!

@robscastle: I can't do better since the motor runs clockwise. I can live with that!

@a1Jim: I believe hold-downs would be complexe to build or design. However, workpieces are steady, thanks to the three contact points and the sandpaper mat.

@Bob817: I'm very happy you follow me on my blog (as well as all others).

@Diggerjack: Yes I do have a specific room to store all my jigs: my workshop, where I use them. :)

Best,

Serge
