ID:	27171I recently made a wine cabinet, and needed to cut several narrow pieces of maple to suport wine bottles. I remembered seeing a jig at a Wood working show that looked like the way to go.Click image for larger version.

    Have used it a number of times and has always produced idenical pieces. the nice part is nothing gets traped between the saw blade and the fence. Much safer that way

    If you make a mistake it was part of the original plan!

    Ron, Thanks for posting this, what a great idea.

    I assume that is works by moving the fence and work piece over to where it makes contact with the jig?

    Please give us some indications on how that works. I cut a lot of thin strips for the kayaks. I do the old way, between the fence and the blade. I just make a sacrificial push block to get past the blade. It works but there has to be a better way.
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    Thats right Darren! Also the screw allows you to make microw ajustments

    Jeff.... What I do is set the Jig into the miter slot. Ajust the cross piece so the brass screw is the distance from the blade that you want your finished piece to be. Then put the work piece on the saw and slide the rip fence to move the work piece to make contact with the brass screw. Then just rip the piece and it falls to the left of the saw blade. Just keep moving the rip fence in that manner untill you have the number of pieces you need.

    Rockler jig

    For those who are too busy or lazy to build one, this $18 item does a good job; you'll never cut thin strips between the blade and fence again.

    Happy New Year, and thanks for all the good advice and information.

    I say the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

    Not quite correct Darren, you can subscribe, but without the e-mail notification, then you see the thread, you just have to click "Quick Links" and "Subscribed Threads" to see the ones you have subscribed to.

    Ron, that is a good little jig for sure, thanks for posting it!
