I work in a big workshop with a large sliding carriage type tablesaw. As such the saw tilts only to the right – that is TOWARDS the rip fence . I am trying to figure out if there is a way to create a jig to vertically cut raised panels on the rip fence in a similar fashion to “USA style” or left tilting table saws…

Ideas?

Mike

Make a jig that attaches to the sliding table.

I agree with Loren, attach your jig to the slider. Most sliders seem to have a miter slot kinda thing down the middle of the slider which accepts some size nut, and that’s where they attach hold-downs and etc.

If you work in a big shop with a slider , there’s certainly a shaper or at least a router table too.

Why not use a tool better suited for the job ?

thanks guys!

Cant believe i didint think of that – what you are saying is use the built in T tracks in the sliding part to attach the jig….Ill have to get some hardware for that – but that is a good idea.

@xedos – RE shaper or router table it just happens to be that the shop i work in doesnt have a shaper (cause here it is only used for people who do tons of moldings and we dont) and the table saw is way more powerful than any router we put in the table (the TS is a large 3 phase beast…) so it makes short work of it. of course this is only true for straight profiles

i will try to get hold of some HW and make it happen
