JIGS & ACCESSORIES
To determine the width (height) of the front rail (C), measure the thickness of your table top (or table top plus fence) and add Vie" for clearance (l5/ie"), see Figs. 2a and 2b. The keeper (D) is easier — it's just IV2" wide.
After you've cut these pieces to size, they can be attached to the front base, see Fig. 2.
spacer With the cleat in place, the two halves of the base can be joined together. To create a uniform gap, I clamped a temporary spacer (a V2" square piece of hardwood) between them, see Fig. 3. (Note: Save this spacer, you'll use it later for the adjustable rail.)
side rail & runner The two halves of the base are connected with a side rail and a runner, see Fig. 3. The side rail (E) adds strength to the jig. It's cut the same width as the front rail (l5/ie") and screwed to the base flush with the edge.
The runner (F) allows you to quickly slip the jig in place and is
cut to fit in the miter gauge slot on your saw. To locate it on the base, first measure in from the throat side of your saw table to the edge of the miter slot, see Figs. 1 and 3. Then transfer this
to the bottom of the jig and screw the runner in place.
To complete the base, all that's left is to remove the spacer and trim the rear base (B) to length, see Fig. 4.
