It's a shame the industry feels the need to keep pushing "silver bullets" at us...

Have we truly given the impression that we don't know how to use a tape/rule and pencil...? And that we don't know how to cut a straight line...?

Shame on us...

I better go get some coffee...! LOL

Yeah, that's a little more reasonable. Aluminum extrusions aren't cheap so that's a bit more in line with what I think are the actual costs of making a product like that.

What bothers me a bit about a lot of this type stuff is that it assumes to some extent that we can't come up with a solution of our own. The path to becoming an expert woodworker includes learning how to make jigs to solve problems like this. As exemplified by another thread I'll have posted in about a half hour.

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.

While my red and silver, Peter Pepper track saw positioning jig was posted in a spirit of fun, it is a serious jig and very easy to make. One thing I see is that the stop blocks really needs to be fairly long (12 inches or so, so they will hold the jig 90 to the outside edge. Setting the little positioning block on the stop block precisely will assure that whenever the stop block is clamped on, the jig will be square and accurate.

I always enjoy working out jigs like this.

I agree Tom. Making jigs like that is usually more fun than the woodworking I'm doing. Maybe it would be different if I was trying to make a living at it. Then I could maybe justify spending the money for someone else to make it, particularly since it would be a tax write off.
