There was a recent thread about thin rip jigs here:
https://www.woodworkingtalk.com/f2/s...estion-216439/

See my post #13 in the thread, where I list a bunch of different ways to build one:

I like this thin rip jig better, because you don't have to adjust the fence each time:

There have been other threads where thin rip jigs and similar rip cut issues have been discussed.

Looks like the woodsmith link is bad.

You're welcome. The link has already broken once in the last few days. This is the new link that I found through a web search. You may want to save the information before this link goes bad, too.

I don't get how it works .....

https://www.woodsmith.com/article/si...r-thin-strips/


It seems to me that once the jig is assembled and the kerf is made, you can only make a specific thickness thin rip. To get other thicknesses, I would think you would need to move the fence which would make an additional saw kerf. You could make the bottom piece adjustable to get different thicknesses?


It occured to me that the thickness of the strip is determined by the offset of the bottom strip to the saw kerf. Once you make that first kerf, that determines the thickness for that offset and makes the jig specific to that thickness.To make different/other thickness, you will need to make another jig, unless I'm all wrong here...?

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

I agree with Bill above.
Whenever I needed to make repetitive thin cuts, I made them between the fence and the blade - Very carefully using a fairly stable push block/stick.
One time it kicked back. Sounded like a 22 cal. shot. The push stick flew out of my hand and actually pushed my hand out of the way. There is that instance of shock and WTF moment. My shop was in a rented mini-storage unit. I couldnt find my push stick.
When I was done for the day, I got in my van and saw the pushstick. It was across the driveway against the roll-up door from the storage unit building facing mine - probably 40 feet away, maybe more.

My method is not safe by any stretch of the imagination, but it the safest way I can think of doing it.
By using the push sticks pictured below, the pressure is downward and forward giving good control. When i get another shop, I will look into the newer designs for narrow strips. Some seem to straddle the fence.

In most of the photos shared none seem to be worth for cutting long strips. Now the original topic starter jig maybe awkward but use able for long strips...

Got the Rockler version of this jig years ago and use it often to make strips for the back side of picture frames to create a rebate deep enough to hold a canvas on a stretcher, and still leave a little room for a metal tab to hole it in place. There are so many uses for thin strips, shelving edges to glue onto ply shelves in particular. Interesting to see other uses for it.

Like DesertRatTom, I also purchased the Rockler one years ago. It works exceptionally well.

I guess I'm so use to cutting scrib or edging on a tablesaw I never use one. I just cut most of the way and flip it around. Then off to the planer or sander....Rebelwork
