Topic tags/keywords: jig

I built this jig some years ago and cannot remember it’s function. It does not straddle my table saw fence. Would appreciate someone to identify it. See photo.

It looks like the right angle jig that came with my incra router fence. I think it’s for clamping wide boards upright and the whole mess slides along the fence. I don’t use it so that’s a guess. It might be helpful for box joints?

+1, on box joint jig for gang end cuts.

It slides against the fence with multiple pieces clamped vertically. The clue is the runner risers to prevent plowing thru the bass. I made one nearly identical years ago. Do you have an incra router fence to use it with?

YeahI do Madmark, but I haven’t really done a whole lot of wood working that would take advantage of its capabilities yet. I do love the fine adjusting with the positioner dial and the lift.

Thanks to StevoWevo and Madmark2 for responding. I don’t have an incra router fence so the jig, as I intended it was not for that. I think Madmark2 has the clue, clamping vertical boards and the use of the runner risers. But I am pretty sure it was for the table saw. I’ll keep searching. Maybe come to me in a dream.

The jig works on the saw if you have an Incra TS fence. Just more passes or use a dado set.

I should have said I do not have an incra table saw fence. I have a steel city fence and it is too narrow for the jig.
