Question Oak Park Raised Panel Jig....

Does anyone have any experience with this? Seems simple enough, but the panel bits on the Freud website all have a 3.5" diameter and this system asks for 3". Does anyone else make quality bits that have a 3 inch diameter with a 1/2" bearing for raised panels?

To answer your first question... some/yes.
To answer your second one, the bit(s), I use with OP setup, I purchased from OP.

Hi tpyke

Not to take away from the Oak-Park Raised Panel Jig but you can make your own for about 25.oo to 30.oo bucks..and just a little bit of your time..

Bop that's a nice job of that mitre using the OP basic idea. Been considering making some other mitres with different blocks to make it easier to get good results with 45 degree mitres and also might try to work something out for better accuracy with corner mitre lock joints. Rich

Hi dadsalmon

Thanks, I'm a cheap old SOB,, LOL
the 45deg.set up would be a easy on this sled just need to put in a 1/2 circle in the backuo block so it can swing into the 45 deg.spot..( both ways)
OR
The easy way is pick up one of the cheap miter gage for the table saw and just add the hold down clamps to the sled...and a longer backup board..

Thank You for the great idea.
I did not want to put tee track in my table and could not figure out how to set up for a mitre fence.
Your idea solves my problem.
Second day on this site for me and I am getting great ideas.

Hi yetiatlarge

You'er Welcome
But I can't take credit for it, I copied the Oak-Park jig setup

Bob R. the old pro.(of RWS) knows how to get the job done the easy way...

Just a Note*** it can also be made out of Birch plywood or 1/4" MDF that will help keep the cost down..
