Often referred to as the World's Toughest Polymer, Ultra High Molecular Weight (UHMW) Polyethylene is your best material choice for making jigs and fixtures for your table saw, router table, drill press, etc. UHMW is a linear high density polyethylene that's 10x heavier than regular high-density polyethylene giving you a rock-solid base for your jig or fixture. UHMW has a low coefficient of friction and is self-lubricating, making it glide over your work surface with little resistance. Plus, this rugged polymer will last for years, as it is highly resistant to abrasions, chemical-resistant, and maintains its high-impact strength even at low temperatures. 4''W X 24'' L X 3/4'' Thick UHMW Plastic Jig Stock.
(1) 4'' X 24'' X 3/4'' UHMW Plastic Jig Stock

Table saw miter slot runners
I like to use UHMW for my table saw sled's miter slot runners. It's much less expensive to cut your own from this stock, and you can get the size exactly right.

That said, note that the dimensions of this stock vary. My piece wasn't even a uniform thickness and one end is slightly too thin for my table saw's miter gauge slots. So do not count on your piece being thick enough to cut down. Next time I will order a 3/8" thick piece so that I can get the width of my runners exactly right.

Not that this stock did not work out. If you screw the runner in from the bottom, then it is possible to spread the material enough to make up for a small gap (on the order of a few thousandths of an inch).

By the way, there is a glue that attaches UHMW well to wood: 3M High Performance Industrial Plastic Adhesive 4693H. It is strong enough to make screw fasteners redundant. Also, when cutting UHMW on the table saw, push it through quickly. Otherwise some will melt on your blade and gunk it up.

Plastic Jig Stock
Plenty of stock material to make a lot of setup jigs. I made one for a locking drawer router bit. If you take small cuts you will not have any issues.

UHMW Plastic
Great when making jigs. I used the 3/4 inch size to mount on the scraping edge of my snow blower to avoid damage to my new cement driveway. It works great.

This product is perfect wherever you need material strong and slick. These pieces were used as skids under a 300 lb. credenza and they worked perfectly.

Wear dust mask when sawing or drilling!
I cut this on a power miter saw with good dust collection and a room dust collector as well. Got it in my lungs and had trouble breathing for days. (Yes, I know: stupid and lazy.) Beware.

Worked great as a holder for turning accessories. Used a reamer for #2 Morse taper and it holds headstock and tailstock centers very nicely. I used UHMW to avoid contact corrosion of the tapers.

Good for what it is
Bought it to make runners for a sled for my table saw. It fit perfectly in my miter slots. Just make sure you trim it fast so the heat of the saw blade doesn't warp it.

I have some other bits and having a setup guide would be useful. I could not find the setup jig so buying this material allows me to make jigs for other bits.

To make jigs for table saw
George W on Dec 19, 2018
Does anyone have experience using this with a Dewalt DW745 table saw? The miter slots are 3/4" wide x 3/8" deep. I'm trying to decide if it's better to use the 3/4" UHMW for the width and trim it for the 3/8" deep, OR use the 3/8" UHMW for the depth and trim it for 3/4" width. Did that make sense?
Jason on Apr 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: the key dimension is the 3/4" wide slot the UHMV needs to be snug the but not tight to this dimension- the 3/8" depth does not matter much. My guess is that you'll need to trim both dimensions regardless of which one you buy.
is the surface smooth? no milling marks
Michael K on Aug 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No further work on surface is needed. I used my piece as a fence for a table saw. It works very well. Makes easy to make sure the wood is tight against the fence.
Is it safe for water tanks with fish?
