Default VIDEO: Shop built tenon Jig for the Super Sled

I finished the latest accessory for the Super Sled - the Tenon Jig.
It's pretty darn easy to build. Given the cost of commercial tenon jigs, you could easily make this one with the scrap plywood you have laying around.

To watch the video , click here:
Super Sled - Crosscut and Miter Sled


The Tenon Jig's features include:
  • micro adjustment feature
  • built in scale
  • unique leveling system

Thank you Nicolas. I really like having the tenon jig on the crosscut sled. It feels very stable and controlled.

Hi John,

Very nicely done.

A while back I made something similar. At first I liked it, then I discovered a major flaw with it. Movement. It was just simply too "light". I've ended up scraping mine & purchased one from Grizzly.

Hi John

Very Nice,,, I know it's for your new sled setup,, I also made one for the table saw,,
it's not as nice as yours, but just one more way to have one....without putting out the bucks for a item that you don't use all the time

Holy cow Bob, that's intense. That's cool looking! I think yours is nicer! It's really nice to make accurate and useful jigs instead of buying them. Thanks for posting your tenon jig, I enjoyed seeing another design.

Thanks Hamlin. This tenon jig has a really good feel of stability and is weighted nicely when it's attached to the sled.

Thanks Doug, I'm glad you like it. There's another video coming for this series - how to make and the mitering fence. It should be cool, I've got something neat in mind for setting the angles.
