Eliminate the danger of pushing narrow strips between the saw and fence!

Overview

This jig allows you to rip thin strips on the left side of the blade, eliminating the danger of pushing narrow strips between the saw and fence. Since the strip is not trapped between the blade and fence, there is also less risk of binding and kickback. It's simple to use; a single knob locks the jig into the miter track and locks your setting at the same time. Ball bearing guide keeps your workpiece firmly against the fence for perfect repeatability. Use the graduated scale to fine-tune for extremely thin strips.

  • Note: Ripping thin strips requires the use of a zero-clearance insert, sold separately.
  • The perfect tool for edging, inlay, bent laminations and more.
  • Solid phenolic for durability.
  • Low-profile miter track clamp locks in at any point along the miter track.
  • Also works great on the bandsaw as a single-point fence for cutting curved slats in multiples.
  • Adjusts from 1-3/8" away from your miter track to 5-11/16" away from your miter track, enough for the thinnest rips
  • Measures 5-1/4"W x 8"L.
  • The jig is stationary, while the fence is moved for each cut.
  • Fits 3/4" W x 3/8" D Miter Tracks

Nice Jig!

Ray Posted January 29, 2015
Had to rip some thin strips and recalled my prior attempts without a jig - shot the thin strip across the workshop. Just used the jig and love it. I'm back to safe procedure use with it; it worked well.

Love it

Whoever said this doesn't work in the Ridgid tablesaw must be confused, I have the TS3650 (10") and it works fine. I really like the build and utility of this jig, it's solid and smooth and easy to use. The bearing at the end helps the wood ride smooth. I just used it this weekend and it was great.

The only problems I have using it aren't really related to the jig itself:

1. My fence is good, but I do have to make sure it's square (usually by pushing hard on the t-end to make the back side square up), and it's a little tricky to push the wood+fence left into the jig bearing while keeping it parallel to the blade. Not the jig's fault.

2. If the board you're cutting is bowed or tapered, you potentially end up jamming it between the jig and the fence during the cut. Also not the jig's fault, just something to watch out for.

Happy with Rockler as usual.

Easy to use

Very easy to use. Most recently used to dimension keys for keyed miter joint. I used calipers to transfer the slot size on my corners to the table saw/jig. Got it on the first try! The bearing can be annoying during set up, but I was glad it was there when making my cuts. I really like that the jig holds position of thin strip but allows you to slide the jig back away from the blade and locks down without losing its setting. Well thought out.
