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

Rockler Thin Rip Tablesaw Jig

Item #
88% of 100
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.

  • 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
  • Ripping thin strips requires the use of a zero-clearance insert, sold separately.

Woodworking Experience:
Works great with Bosch 4100 Table saw
I use this for cutting miter keys for small boxes. Works fantastic. On the Bosch tablesaw, you put the jig on the right side of the blade and the fence on the left. I use the OEM zero clearance inset.

Great Jig
I used this to cut 1/32 spacers to position drawers for a small jewelry box. It worked great, I was able to rip them exactly 1/32 over and over again. Perfect cuts and exactly the same thickness.

It works well.
Allows for cutting thin strips of consistent dimension. The miter bar fits perfectly in my Craftsman contractor bar. I used it to cut facing strips for my kitchen cabinet shelves. Looks great compared to the glue-on paper the builder used.

Does anyone use this on a Ridgid R4512 saw?
Umpire.20 on Jun 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes it's a great match
Am I missing a piece. How does the knob attach to the jig
JohnA on Feb 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The knob attaches to a 5/16" , countersunk bolt that is 1 1/2" long. The bolt comes up from the base plate, trough the miter guide. The countersunk bolt expands the miter guide to secure it in the miter slot.
Does this do something I can't do with my featherboards?
Buckeye Bill on Nov 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The bearing on the thin rip jig acts as a positive stop for repeatable thin strip creation. It does act as a feather board as the rolling bearing keeps positive pressure against the piece being cut. The reference lines on the yellow band also allows for small incremental adjustments. It works equally well as a re-saw guide on the bandsaw for thin strips. The only negative that I have on this jig is the lack of a hole in the jig to hang it up for easy access.

I use it to make thin strips for basket handles, basket staves, rims, and dulcimer sides. This works better and safer than the feather boards that I was using previously.
Will it work on a Hammer N4400 bandsaw with a miter slot of 5mm deep and 15 mm wide?
mike g on Dec 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The miter slider is 18.85mm wide and 9.15mm deep. So this portion of the jig will not work on your tool. So I would say it would not work for you.
You have an odd sized miter slot on this saw.
Will this work on a Dewalt table saw DWE 7491 RS?
SHADOW on Jan 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have this exact saw, and while it fits, its use is limited because of where the miter slot is located. I couldn’t get very thin strips even after adjusting the product all the way.
My Ryobi table saw has a miter slot that is 3-1/4" from the blade. Can this be used or modified to reach that far? I'll need to rip 1/8" strips.
Dale B on Mar 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, It will easily reach that far.
Does it matter which side of the blade the jig is on? My left side miter track would only allow for about a 1/2" minimum cut but the right side is closer so I could get a much thinner cut.
Mike S on Jul 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It doesn't matter which side of the blade you place the jig, as long as your fence is on the side of the blade opposite the jig. You'll have to have some reference surface (i.e. the fence) to get consistent cuts.
Can two guides be used for greater accuracy, with the other places in the line with mid point of the saw?
Ensar B on Apr 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I use the single Thin Rip jig and a finishing blade to cut walnut basketry strips of .070 thick and 50" long and only have variation of .001"-.005" over the entire lengths which is finished on a drum sander. If you need additional support on long pieces for accuracy, I would recommend a finger jig in front of the Thin Rip jig to add additional pressure against the workpiece and fence. A second Thin Rip jig could be used for the same purpose.
Does it come with the blade narrow slotted guide to, or is that another part you have to order? I have a Rigid table saw
HOWARD L on Jun 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The Thin Rip Guide comes with a guide to fit a 3/4" miter fence slot. I use mine on a Saw Stop saw.
Any chance you can make this work on the Dewalt contractor saw who's slot is 6" from the blade?
Wm M on Jul 25, 2017
Assuming you are going to use this jig in the same orientation as shown in the Rockler catalog, there is a roller bearing at the apex of the curved surface on the right side. This bearing is butted up against the piece that is to be cut. When the jig is set to maximum width cut (the jig is all the way to the left), I measured the distance from the right edge of the bearing race to the right edge of the mitre slot insert to be 1 5/16". When the jig is positioned to a minimum cur (jig is all the way to the right), I measured the distance from the right edge of the roller bearing race to the right edge of the mitre slot insert to be 5 11/16".
Remember, this jig has a mitre bar insert underneath that fits into the mitre slot and the 5 star knob on the top allows one to adjust the blue top portion left or right for the desired width cut. Also remember, as is shown in the rockler catalog, you are cutting the pieces off the LEFT side of the blade. Hope this helps !
Can I use this to cut a 1 or 2 inch strip?
Paul W on Jul 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I'm not totally clear on what you want to do. If you are thinking of cutting narrow strips 1 or 2 inches high, things will get more unstable as your height increases just because of the height of the jig. (1 inch would be no problem) If you want strips 1 or 2 inches wide, the jig really isn't needed-it would be a lot easier to just use your fence.
Does this jig provide a nice tight fit in a JET table saw?
George O on Jun 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This item fits in a miter track that is 3/4" wide by 3/8" deep. Make sure the small flanges just below the head of the bolt are in line with the miter track to ensure that it tightens properly.
I was wondering about whether this would fit in a dewalt 745? The table is pretty small and wondering if it could be placed properly and safely? Sure hope the answer is yes.
Rick J on Jun 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The only problem I can see is the miter slot size. This tool requires a miter slot that is 3/4" wide by 3/8" deep.
My Hitachi contractor table saw miter slot is only 9/16" wide by 3/8" deep. This Rockler jig description says miter slot bar is 3/4" wide by 3/8" deep.
Does Rockler have a miter bar that can be installed in place of the 3/4" wide one that would fit my 9/16" wide table saw slot?
Robert L on Oct 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No. However, you might be able to make a bar out of oak that is 9/16" wide x 5" long x 3/8" deep and screw it in place of the original bar. Then the jig would need to be clamped to the table top to hold its position firmly in place. Maybe using a 2x4 cut to the length of your saw table top mounted on the blue top of the jig with "C" clamps on each end of the 2x4 would hold the jig in place. You could cut a 5 1/4" wide dado in the 2x4 1/8" deep or so to better fit over the Blue top of the jig. Just a possible solution for you.
The bearing on this jig came off and is lost. How can I get another?
