Pictures of Jigs


I have posted some pictures of jigs I have built in ABPW.
I would be very interested in other specialty jigs that anyone has constructed.
Enjoy....

Thanks, those were quite interesting. I'm having a little trouble understanding exactly how it is you use the thin strip sliding jig. Do you have any additional pictures of it in action?

I wanted to keep the picture size small to keep down bandwidth.
Maybe an explanation will help.
There is the base unit. There is a retaining unit. The base unit sits directly on top of the saw table and is butted against the saw fence. There is a 1/2" wide dado that is 1/4" deep, cut the length of the base unit, about 1" from the right side. The retaining unit has a mated strip that fits down into the dado, and then the retaining unit is clamped to the fence. The retaining unit actually sits on top of the base unit.
This allows the base unit to slide back and forth along the fence, but the dado with the strip acts a guide, keeping the base unit against the saw fence when the base is moved back and forth.
The entire handle unit is set on a different block, but attached to the base unit with a continuous hinge. (Piano hinge). This allows the handle unit to flip to the right. The reason for this is to allow stock that is longer than the base unit to be cut. The base unit actually acts as a fixed fence during this phase of the cutting process.
The adjustable foot is attached directly to the handle unit. There is a simple sliding piece of wood that moves back and forth along the handle unit.
Awww piffle. This is getting too long. I'll post more pictures later today. This design has more moving parts than most jigs, but it does work very well.
I use the jig to produce edging strips.

The link is news:alt.binaries.pictures.woodworking
For some reason the word "jigs" is not in the subject line, look for Ideas III.
JOAT Just pretend I'm not here. That's what I'm doing.
