Default "What is it"? #100

This home-made tool is used almost every day in my shop. Identify the tool, what it is used for and how it works for 100 points.

I think it a jig for making a straight edge.The jig uses the fence as a guide.The lip on the back of the jig engages the piece.

Stan, does the strip across the back of this fixture extend beyond the fixture its self? If it does, I would say you use it to cut very thin strips of wood. You use the fence as a guide and the extended piece just catches the stock to be cut. This is one of the safer ways to cut thin strips of wood.

In woodworking there is no scrap, only firewood.

Winners...

John and Dr. Zook have it figured out. John described how it was used and the Dr. gave the detailed description. Points are on their way.

Below are the results of using my 'Spline Cutting Jig' -- some inlays to be used in making picture frames.
