Default How do you secure your pins and tails?

I have an Incra Fence and I have made several jigs of the years to secure my pin and tail drawer panels to my right angle fence.

None of my solutions seem to cover everything I do and I hate just using a simple clamp across the two sides.

I never seem to have enough room for stop blocks on many of my cuts.

So, I thought I would ask around for some ideas.

Photos are worth extra points!!!!

I have the Incra LS system as well. I use a 12" Jorgensen Handscrew. Have cut plenty of pins and tails this way. Seems to work well enough. I agree with you though; it would be nice to have a more versatile and less cumbersome clamping system. I would think that with all the engineering that Taylor Design has put into the Incra LS system, that they could design a right angle fence with a good clamping attachment.

I did upgrade to the 10" fence and that gave me more room for my jigs and stop blocks but a good clamping system would be very welcome.

And while they are at it. How about a shaping sled incorporated into the right angle fence.
