My small project list is approaching framed items. I don't do much in this area so my miter gauge has always been fine for one or two. I plan to do quite a few so I blatantly stole this from some other kind hearted forum member who was good enough to post it.
This is not the usual use for these types of clamps but they did hold my previously cut square at a solid 45* angle on the sled:
Using the sled fence as a reference surface I see the 45's are good:
I drill some through holes for threaded inserts. I had to plan ahead so I could use these on different sleds (the scrap laying there was used as a backer board):
I counter sink the hole and use a shop made insert driver to set the inserts:
I went to the jig parts drawer but did not have some knobbed studs. I used some misc hardware and will get some proper jig hardware next time I order something. I made test cuts using wide scrap so any error would be amplified.
To use the jig place opposing halves of the material on opposing sides of the jig (one at a time). This assures that those to pieces will fit. You can hardly see the joints:

The two jig parts are just made of scrap. Now that I know they work I will use them as patterns to make better ones when these wear out.
