If you've ever struggled to make a lengthy angled cut, this is the jig for you!

Overview

With a simple indexed angle setting system, heavy duty hold-down clamps and a smooth sliding design, it makes tapered cuts fast, easy and more precise. Perfect for chair legs, table legs and more. Jig fits snug in any standard 3/8" x 3/4" miter slot and features a large, ergonomic handle for smooth push-action performance throughout the cut. Plus, with the miter bar removed it doubles as a stable straight line ripping jig.

  • Measures 31-5/8" x 7-3/4".
  • Constructed of 1/2" thick MDF.
  • Includes 36" miter bar.
  • Indexing marks make angle setting easy — each mark represents 1° of taper.
  • Dual tape measures provide convenient reference and also help set angles.
  • Two wide-body hold down clamps prevent stock from drifting dangerously from your fence.
  • Clamps have non-marring rubber caps for enhanced grip.
  • Three adhesive strips run across the jig to help stabilize your workpiece.
  • With taper angle zeroed out, jig works great to rip straight edges on rough lumber.

Very functional, but do your homework...

Charles Posted July 17, 2014
So I bought this without making sure that the standard 3/4" miter bar would fit in the miter slot on my table saw- spoiler alert, it did not. I was able to work around this eventually, and this was in no way Rockler's fault- it was clearly labeled on the box- just check your saw beforehand to save yourself the heartache. That said, it worked perfectly, and I was very happy with its performance once I got it working in my situation.

I've used this jig a lot,...

I've used this jig a lot, and value for money it would be hard to beat, certainly an improvement in safety over some of the other available taper jigs. The clamps hold the wood in place nicely, and for thicker stock I just used some longer T-bolts. It's also good for ripping a straight edge on rough cuts. Although I haven't needed to do large angle tapers, I can see that the handle would get in the way.....I should also point out that I NEVER hesitate to order anything from Rockler because their customer service is EXCEPTIONAL, on the odd occasion that I've had a problem with an item they have bent over backwards to make replacement as easy as possible.

I bought this jig a few...

I bought this jig a few months ago on sale with free shipping, knowing I would eventually use it. Well today I used it. I can't tell you how much of a joy it was to use compared to the old scissors type aluminum one I have. It was also a lot safer in my opinion. It was easy to set up. And the tapered legs were dead on. Once you have it set up the cuts are repeatable. Highly recommend.
