Default Homemade Oak Park Box Joint Jigs

I made the two sizes of the jig that they were out of. I bought the 1/4 jig and made the 3/8 and 1/2. The one on the right is the one I bought.

If you have a Vac-u-plate there is a sticky thread showing how to convert the jigs for use with it.

Default Oak park jigs

I am buying the 1/4 inch oak park jig and I am wondering how to make thec1/2 and 3/8 inch ones? Oak park no longer sells the 1/2 or 3/8 ones. Thanks.

Greg.

Greg, once you get your jig from Oak Park you will see the construction. The other jigs are the same size and you will need to cut slots for the 3/8" and 1/2" fences. Glue for HDPE is super expensive so you are best off to secure them with screws into the fences from the bottom. I will check mine to see what the position of these fences are compared to the 1/4" fence.
