    That's another good idea to stick in the mental file cabinet. Thanks for posting it, Niki.

    Niki,

    I was browsing around and saw this older post of yours.

    I appreciate that you post labelled pictures of the methods you use in constructing jigs... it is so much more helpful than just showing the finished jig.

    For the circular saw guide, I was wondering why the center leg that guides the saw is so wide. Also, the other side of the T looks like it could be used as a guide, too, like for cutting w/the other side of the circ. saw or for a router... do you see any problem with that?

    Lastly, this is almost 2-yrs later... have you made any changes to the t-square design that you use?

    Thank you Spence

    The reason that the center leg is so wide is because I'm using (as you can see) a 5/8" thick MDF "Floor Panel" and I think that I wanted to make it more rigid or.....maybe I just used what I had...

    Yes, I think that you can use the other side of the center leg as a router guide...I use something different.

    I made only one change that is not so important and I could live without it....

    Regards
    niki

    The change may seem unimportant, but it's still a brilliant idea that could be used for other applications. Great revision, Niki.

    Nice to see you drop by, too.

    Thank you

    Well, the story is that the last 6~7 months I've been in and out of the hospital....Colon Cancer...3 operations... but the good news is that now I'm "clean" just the recovery will take long time (I lost 44 Pounds) so, no woodworking for me this year...

    BTW, I had PM from December 2008 that I replied just a few days ago and I wonder what the guy thinks about me not responding his PM...

    Regards
    niki
