Cross cut jig
« on: November 03, 2014, 05:28 AM »

I have added a cross cut jig to my 8x4 mft style bench

When I cut across the 4 foot span I get a difference of 0.3mm when test cutting

Has anyone made one of have any comparisons.

It is always 0.3 mm difference on the far measurement when I cut twice to make a test cm wide cut


I made this from ron Paulk cross cut with the addition of the kreg track parts to stiffen up the straight edge

also i added a further addition of a small cut side, on the right of the blade, to allow small cuts like on the parallel guide extensions

so far i have found it very useful, the only thing i don't like is that the clamps stick out, so going look into smaller clamps or a built in solution

next is to modify the base of the workbench to allow storage for the jigs
