Default Micro Jig Taper Jig?

Anyone bought this yet? I know a taper jig is easy to make but they seem to have put a lot of effort into it.

Don't have one but the concept is pretty neat.

My home brew jig, based on these plans uses the miter slot as guide which I prefer rather than sliding along the fence. My jig does have limits on how wide the stock can be but I've not needed to go beyond those limits (so far)

Default Another option for a taper jig

I recently built the attached taper and ripping jig. Works well and all parts are scraps but the T-track parts. Plans are available for free on the Woodsmith Shop at

Decided I'm going to make one rather. I like the Micro Jig Tapering device but it will end up costing me the equivalent of $240 once it's landed and shipping costs are paid.

Still cool though and maybe Amazon will have it on special sometime.

Another random comment but it reminds me of this very cool advert published on Youtube.

Check it out.

Its neat, however I see it suffering from some of the same limitations that some of the other commercial taper jigs suffer from. Using the GRR-Ripper helps, a bit, but it doesn't look like a comfortable operation, unless you put yourself in line of fire of a potential kick-back.

One of my more recent projects I made a taper jig that ran against the fence, but it was more like a sled, and the work piece fully clamped on to it.
