027 Thin Strip Ripping Jig: A useful everyday jig
Thin Strip Ripping Jig
This ripping jig is used on almost any project that is build using sheet using sheet goods. It is easy to build and even easier to use. I’m sure you will get as much use as I do from this jig.
My name is Bruce and I’m a jig addict….. 🙂
I really do love jigs both using them and building them. Anytime I find one that I feel would be useful, I will usually draw up a plan and then try and refine the design making it even better.
If you ever cut edging for plywood projects or just have a need to cut thin strips of material safely, this jig will work for you. Just lock the jig in your miter slot before the blade and set the width of strip you want to rip. The jig also acts as a mini feather board to keep you board against the fence while you cut the strip of material. It is easily adjusted for your width of cut.
There is an optional scale that can be added. Once calibrated the scale lets you set you width quickly and accurately for repeatable strips.
You will be glad you decide to make this jig. It will quickly become one of your go to tools. Happy woodworking!
