New Panel Cutting Jig

Appearances: Episodes 0101-


This is Norm's new “home-made panel cutting jig,” which, in truth, most of us call a cross cut sled. Whatever its moniker, it's an extremely handy device.

Norm built it in the first Jigs & Fixtures episode (0101). It differs from the old one in that it runs on the right side of the blade instead of the left and the fence is nearer the operator (bottom of the picture) rather than at the far end of the jig away from the operator (top of the picture).
