Default Tenoning jig

As the thread at http://www.routerforums.com/tool-rev...oning-jig.html unfolded, I had already done much of the work building this thing. 2 days of messing around and I have this done.

One tip in the Shopnotes instructions is to cut the slider slots first. I didn't and almost started the base and slide over. I finally got the slots done by doing a bit of finaggling. I used 1/8" plexiglass cut in 3/8" strips for the guides.


To cut the dado for the runner, I placed a 3/4" piece of pine in the tablesaw miter slot and placed an aluminum angle against that. Made a cut then shimmed behind the angle to bring it to a 3/4" wide slot for the runner to fit in. I did it that way because the runner slot must be dead parallel to the blade when using the jig. I trimmed all the excess out on the RT with a mortising bit.



As you can see it sits in the TS slot real nice.


It also fits in the RT miter slot.


At this point I need to get to the hardware store to get threaded rod, a couple knobs, etc. I have yet to make the adjustment slot in the slider board and put a carriage bolt through it to lock it in place.


Front view.


To be continued.

I worked on the adjustment clamp slot and the double stop system today.

First, I took it apart and clamped the base and slide plate to the drill press table. I chucked up a mill bit in the DP and used that to cut the slot for the carriage bolt clamp. Sliding the plate back and forth, and dropping the bit a little at a time produced the finished product.



Using a blind nut, a length of 1/4"x20 threaded rod, 2 couplers and wing nuts, I got the double stop system installed. It's a pretty slick idea in that you don't need to remove the stock to make the second cheek cut. Just make the first cut, loosen the clamp nut, slide the table, clamp it down, and make the second cut.


Next, the clamp for the workpiece.

Default All finished.

The hold-down bar was pretty simple to do. I cut 2 pieces of 3/4" ply to 2 1/2x13" and glued them together. Drilled the holes in the ends, clamped it against the face of the jig, and drilled the 2 holes for the carriage bolts. Located where to cut the relief slot, cut that, and I was done.

An enjoyable project.
