Table saw tapering jig
why I needed a circle jig…

One morning my daughter said to me she needed a wedge to hold the door when she took out her bicycle, so I went to the work shop to make her one, only this time I decided to do it safe… So I made a jig for tapering cuts - no more freehand cutting.



Some scrap ply and by the help of my new circle jig with a fast and easy angle set.

Pictures:
1. Jig in action…
2. The parts.
3. Mounting the angle setting, after that I set the angles and made marks for each five degrees, but you can also glue a cheap angle on top and get it in one degree steps.
4. A threaded insert for the adjustment screw.
5. A stop that can be easily changed when cut into.
6. This is how it works.

Hope it can be to some inspiration,

It will come handy in many ways.
It certainly looks more professional than the commercial one.

Mads, you discovered the perpetual movement! A jig that makes jigs to make a jig that makes more jigs. Endless. And better, you saved from not buying a protractor. Yep, we're brothers! One more thing: I would have made it longer. I believe this model is too short to safely taper longer stock. Trying would be hazardous, right?

Best,

Serge

It's a nice, but like a1jim I too like the sled type taper jigs. Mostly because of hold downs. I use one Charles Neil has on his web site. Thanks Charles.

Nice series of jigs Mads .
I would like to see a riving knife or splitter on your saw it makes it a lot safer !
Stay safe and the jig music is great, I will turn it on when I build my next jig it may help.
