Question Right angle guide

I have a Kreg bench top router table. I have a part (can't remember the name!) that slides in the t-track. It is drilled and tapped in several places. Question- what is the best way to build it to make 90 degree passes on the table? Can it be adapted in some way for 45 degrees also? Thanks.
Table works great for long passes but I need something for the short passes over the router.
Have a Groz precision square if that helps.

Could you explain exactly what you are trying to do. I think it would help answer your question better.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

It sounds to me you're talking about a right angle sled but a square push block against your fence is easier. If you watch Marc Sommerfeld's you tube videos you'll see him using a push block for doing the profile on the ends of cabinet door rails.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Sounds like a piece of milled bar stock probably 1/4"X3/4" with several tapped holes probably for a miter gauge with parts removed

Learning is an exciting adventure

If it looks like the picture below, it is called a miter gauge. If so, it is designed specifically to push stock at an angle. Also comes as a "system" as shown in the second picture, but a hardwood or mdf scrap could serve as the fence as well--so long as it is straight.

Question

Finally got a round tuit. You can get anything on the Internet. Yes, it is basically a miter gauge that I'm wanting to build. I got the part that goes in the T-track at Woodcraft. Just need some help in the basic design or ideas. Many thanks. Have a project for SWMBO- building a rack for her necklaces using various drawer knobs. With all the jewelry he has now, I figure a 4X8 baltic birch panel will work.

Have a look at this one. I have the metal runner ready and the rotating part, but it is also a round tuit, and I haven't got there yet


When everything around you is going to pot, get out in the workshop.

vindaloo, thanks for the great video! Well done- good sound, no blocking one's view with fingers or hands, clear step-by-step visuals. I was pondering how he cut the groove for the base to pivot. Sheer genius. I would have fussed and fumed while trying to figure it out myself. Gives me a great starting point.

Great job on the video

I was thinking it would be cool too add a piece that drops down and has a bolt in it to calibrate it to zero as a stop

I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate
