Default Deluxe Push Block

Deluxe Push Block for the Oak-Park box jigs.

This push block will let you use all 3 of the Oak-Park Box Jigs 1/4", 3/8", 1/2".
With this push block you will not need to make the offset block just set the 1st part in place and run the other two after.
The front part will need to be replace from time to time but the stop block will help.
It's a easy and quick one to make , The push block will hold the parts true and sq. to the table and the bit.
Just put on the 3/8" box jig, set the bit with the brass bar, then move the side part on the push block so it rides right next to the rail on the jig, clamp the parts, you are ready to cut the slots.

I got the hint from the links below, and I didn't want to pay 50 dollars for something I could make.

The one below is for 3/8" only. ▼

If you need any more info just ask and I will post it.

Just a NOTE *** I found out the hard way I should have removed the sand paper from the spot the bit will come throught the stock and into the back board, it will dull the bit when it hits the sand paper.
Just a take a sharp knife and remove a 3/4" wide by 1" high piece.

Very nice BJ....

That is a deluxe job if I ever seen one.

I'm going to save this and revisit the pictures when I have time to build one.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Bob

Being a cheap SOB ,I like to make my own jigs , and this one works great and it will save a step or two when making box joints, like making the offset block that Bob and Rick use.
Plus I didn't like holding the stock with one hand and pushing it over the bit with the other.
Things can happen so quick with a router and I do want to keep all my parts still using MOST of them.

I'm not about to ask which parts you have stopped using

I agree... you can never be too careful using any power tool and most especially a router.

Good timing Bj. I used a couple of 2x4s screwed together last week to make box joints and kept thinking I really need to make a proper push block.

If you're leaving the material clamped, how is the push block moving over each time since it only has one bottom slot to ride the fence rail?

(I used to think I was smart but woodworking has proven otherwise)

Hi Michael

I just unclamp the stock and move it over and reclamp it then make the next slot.
The sand paper holds it with just a bit of help from the hand clamp.
Plus it keeps my fingers back and away from the bit when I make the pass.
The two clamped parts in the snapshot ,just to show how to set it up for both parts.
No need to use the slide on offset block that Bob and Rick use.
The 1st. slot is always true no matter how wide the board is, just flip it around and use it for the offset, just like the block that Bob and Rick use but in this case you don't need to make one.. because you just did.

Michael

Hi Michael

The neat part about the jig is that you can use it for ALL the box jigs, I'm working on a way to use it for making 3/4" slots, I think that would look neat in 3/4" thick stock.
That's why you see a 3/4" wide slot in the base.

This is excellent Bob, thanks for posting it! Definitely has a couple plus's over just using a block and like you said, you don't have to make the offset piece either. Nice!
