    Simple bench saw jig

    Been wanting to post this for a while. Finally got a round tuit.

    Anyway, it's a simple jig mounted on the side of my workbench, that acts as a bench hook for both pull saws and push saws. Easy to make, and use. Pictures should be self-explanatory:

    It's always there, instantly ready, and works well.

    Very nice idea ... i might do that myself now that I have access to the right side of my bench. I'd been thinking about an end vise with dogs ... but I think I can do both

    By the way, how'd my LN saw get over there? :P

    What, four pieces of wood, with holes drilled in them, then four screws..................

    Are you nuts???

    Don't you have to spend $30 on some special plastic thing with anodized aluminum extrusions on it from some big online store......

    Just funning, nice stops, I have only push saws, so I have the push only bit mounted on two spots on my worktable.

    Great post Ken!

    I use an end vise with dogs too, and have this jig on the back side of my bench, which is accessible from all 4.

    Your saw? I thought it was my saw? The more I know of you Jason, the more I think you are a gentleman and a scholar.

    And Stu, I hope you noticed that I used premium wood to make the jig, [Right - scraps only] and McFeely's screws.
