I actually built this jig, mostly, for the 45 degree feature. I wanted to not have to adjust my saw to the 45* angle for cutting mitered corners for box making as it is difficult to get an exact 45 without a lot of test cuts. It can also be adjusted to 90*, or anything in between, for cutting tenons. I found this jig on the Jointech sight and thought it would be perfect to use with my cross-cut sled. Once you have it set to the angle you want you don't need to fool with it again. It can be clamped onto the sled when needed or removed when not without having to mess with your saw settings other than maybe depth of cut. I attached the PDF plans for those who have a crosscut sled and might want to build one of these. There are also plans for a crosscut sled you can download at Jointech.com.
