Yet another jig

Hi all

Seems that I am making quite a few jigs lately. Here is an idea I had last night to allow me to route a stopped grove in the top of a box lid for some Mahogany to be inlaid. I needed some end stops on my guide.

I used a steel insert for the 6mm setscrew to run in and lock the end stop in position and ground the end of the bolts to a nice flat finish so that they did not chew up the aluminium.

Works very nicely.

I am intending to stick a couple of pieces of flexible measuring tape across the top, from the middle out to each side, to allow accurate setups.










Edited once for spelling :oops:

Ah bejabers! The man has more jigs than Michael Flatley, so he does.*

I like it, Tony. Making a clamp guide a little more hand tool friendly has been on the Tuit list for a while now; if I can remember I'll probably pinch your idea and make a set of my own at the same time. Ta muchly.

Cheers, Alf

Alf, I have to explain to visitors to North Devon that “dreckly” is similar to the Spanish “mañana”, but without it’s intense sense of urgency. I’d say six months is on the hurried side.

Regards, John
