About a week or so after I built this one, I saw one on-line that allowed you to adjust the width between the rails. The adjustable design really wasn't complicated, so if I had to do it over again, I'd probably make it adjustable.
I think they wanted around $40 for it. Making it adjustable would only add a few bucks to the cost for the bolts and knobs.
I'm not sure if I'd ever need it adjustable, but you never know.
That jig is a great idea, and silly me, I thought it was my original design. Pretty foolish of me to think that something that simple had not been thought of before, lol. Oh well, the bottom line is that it is really easy to build and it works.
I have fought with clamped things slipping on laminate too many times, so I ran the double stick the full length of both rails. Boy was that overkill. I thought I was going to pull up the laminate when I was removing the jig. :"^) I don't know if I'd cut back on the amount of tape I used though, you only get one chance to make a straight cut.
I should have built my own drill press table. I bought the HF one and had to modify and reinforce it to make it work properly. One of the issues with the table is the t-track is held with very tiny screws. The first time I used a hold down clamp, the track came right up.
Those plane handles are more like a work of art. What is the wood you are using on the ones you haven't finished yet?
You think I'm crazy? Wait till you meet my imaginary friends.
