How does it work? What do you do with thicker pieces of material to run? Do you have anything below the table to collect dust there? Looks like it would be alternate plan to the more standard dust ports on the back of the fence.

Hello George
That looks like a great solution for some jobs. One quick knob removal too put it back underneath? Is that a sabre saw on the Right side? Looks good.For a dado, or groove cut, i suppose that you go back under the table, Nice!

Its work when the dust port of the fence is so far from the bit, due to the size of the pieces

I can work with thicker pieces putting a piece and rising the port.
There is not a dust collect bellow the table.

Yes, the knob is for fastr adjust.

Yes you are right, i mounted a sabre saw under the table.
its dangerous but is confortable, i will put some fence to avoid injuries.

Hi George

Nice job, I love jigs and that's a good one ..

Here's just one more way to suck up the chips and have a stater pin/safety pin all in one fixture.. most of the time, your jobs will be using the front side of the bit.

Those are similar to some jigs that I want to build. On a previous post of mine, Bobj posted this pic: Bobj vac LINK I thought of that use whenever I ran into the vacuum arm pic below.

I also planned on making a router table insert for the jig saw/sabre saw but ran into the other setup below which uses bearings to keep the blade straight. I don't have a bandsaw or scroll saw and that that would work pretty good.
