Hello guys, has anyone ever made one of those through dovetail fixtures that ShopNote #43 has in the magazine? Or anyone have built one on their own?
Thanks, Bluegillman

I have never seen this in a magazine. Do you think you could show some pictures of it?

Thanks,

Kevin

I was trying to post a photo that I had scanned but can't? How do I get it on this? (I don't know if I did one right!)

Gday Bluegillman, I am interested in the Shopnotes jig myself.

I have made a through dovetail jig, it has fixed fingers though, it is similar to the Australian made Gifkins jig. I used an old Incra positioning jig (for accurate spacing) when cutting the template out on the router table, and have Loctited bearings onto standard dovetail and straight bits to use with it. Works a treat.

I'm looking to make one with variable spaced fingers so I'm also interested if anyone has made the Shopnotes one or similar.

Cheers.................Sean

The beatings will continue until morale improves...

I would try that again (posting) on the other computer. (I have three running for some reasons, but this one isn't big for it) I had download the mag and would have to "work" to get it post. Bear with me when I get a change to post it. Thanks guys! :p

Now let's see if you can "see" the photo.. First try says I had it way too big to post it, then my son says I have to "cut" it down to size to fit.

Gday Bluegillman, your attachment opens, possibly reduced a little too much.

Did you have any luck with that Shopnotes jig? Haven't decided about getting the back issue, hope someone else has built the jig.

Cheers......Sean

Having made several of the projects from Shopnotes I am sure the jig will perform as expected. I am in the process of building a portable router table from Shopnotes #45, soon to be followed by the "Stow away router table" from Shopnotes #71(which also includes 5 handy shop projects made from a single sheet or plywood each and a very nice wooden vise!) The holidays will be here soon and many people are afraid to tackle what they think will be a complex project. The plans are easy to follow, well thought out, and the results are both practical and economical. Note: Some of the Shopnotes are out of print from time to time. Rockler and other websites offer individual plan reprints for $3.95 US. The complete Shopnotes issue sells for $4.95 US.

Hello Scooter, I just built it some but didn't finish it. I'm waiting for an opening on my machine at work to do some of the parts. Months back some days the machine is open waiting for another job to run, I didn't have any plans to build something. Now I do and it's always got a job going! Made the base's fixture with the slots cutted out, made nuts to screw the fingers onto the fixture. I need to make the fingers and test the cuts to be sure those size fits the dovetail before I run them all. I'm building it all out of alum.
