Project Information

Lately I built and posted my new tapering and jointing jig. I wanted to add adjustable stops but my thought about sliding stops wasn't set as the most effective type be to used for identical repetitive cuts.

As shown, my design started with a 3/4" MDF 5" disk.
Two carriage bolts, two washers and two wing nuts are more than enough to secure the stops. Note that sandpapers must be stuck on the proper side of the pieces otherwise the stops will be too far apart from each other.
Once the first workpiece is mounted and secured flush with the trailing edge of the jig, the stops are spun and secured against the workpiece to ensure identical repetitive cuts.
When fully retracted (photo 6), the full jig width is still available for wider tapered cuts without having to remove them.

Thanks for looking, and commenting if applicable.

Best,

Serge

Probably easier to get a real fine adjustment than with a sliding type, too.

Nicely done, Serge. I like having sandpaper on things like this because they won't slip. Very nice
