Great jig for the price
Posted February 24, 2014
While I agree with the comments about the screws needing to be very tight and it being a bit flimsy, this is a great jig for the price. I cut 2x2 solid oak table legs and had absolutely no problem. I inspected and tighten everything before use and in between each cut just to be sure.
I read all of the reviews...

I read all of the reviews and most complaints were that the taper jig wouldn't stay set it kept closing. well when I received mind I put it together and had to try it. 1st I cut 1/2" plywood no problem. 2nd I cut 3/4" plywood and still no problem. 3rd I cut 1/2" cherry guess what no problem. The tapers were just as I set them. The only thing I could figure was that the negative reviews were from people that didn't know how to use it. It works perfectly, it tighten down tight. This is a must have for any type of woodworker.
I have been a custom woodworker...

I have been a custom woodworker for over 35 years. In that time I have fabricated countless wooden jigs to make taper cuts on special projects that required cutting angles. When I saw this product advertised I decided to give it a try. It works great, especially if you know the "easy way" to make a precision taper without needing its angle. It's a simple process that is quick and easy. I am totally pleased with this product and have made many precision tapers up to 24 inches long since I started using it. I wish I had this taper jig when I started my woodworking career. About the price? A bargain!
