Wouldn’t it be nice to have a jig database? I’m thinking having it as a searchable or browseable feature.

Sounds like a great idea. You might think of having some way to add ratings or votes: I can imagine searching on ‘tenoning jimg’ and having a hundred hits.

I think we’re going to need a Jig to do THAT

I thought we were just tagging jig projects with “jig” to make them easy to find.

Good idea. If this wouldn’t kill the idea: For those that have SketchUp abilities, a little 3D model would be nice. I’m thinking of the recent “best ever super sled” that was offered up.

That would be a great idea. I hate searching numerous webpages and going through lots of advertising to find a jig. A simple one stop shop for jigs would keep me off the internet and in the workshop

If anything comes of this idea, let us know!

but, it requires a lot of work, webspace, management etc…

Honestly many off the shelf web programs would probably work with adaptation, but I hardly have time to do coding for my own website nowadays LOL…

Unless of course this is a subtle hint for Martin :P

Why not just start a thread and call it tips and jigs. Anyone can add to it. It could be an original jig or tip or one that’s been around for a while. A lot of the new people on the site may have never seen it before so it would help them.
