whats your favorite Jig?

so what is yours? why is it your favorite and is it homemade or bought?
I will start.
store bought straight edge used for cutting straigt lines with a circular saw. it is two pieces that that are jsut over 4 ft long that you can clamp togeather to make a 8ft long section. Since I don't have a table saw this this thing is worth its weight in gold.
and was made even better thanks to this forum who suggested to mount it on a piece of wood then you know right where the blade will cut. Makes breaking down a sheet of ply so much easier and faster.

My fav (most useful) is MT straight line rip jig for processing rough lumber. Its invaluable.

A shop made track saw is my most used.
A shop made adjustable guide for routing perfect width dados for today's plywood is my favorite.

The track saw is simply an 8"m length of 5/8 Apply ply with a T track dadoed in and a T track insert bolted to the bottom of a Skil 77 worm drive.

The Router jig is just two pieces of 3/4 BB wide enough for the router and clamps. I just put a scrap of the ply to be used in the dado between the BB pieces, snug it up and clamp to the work. Use a pattern bit with the top bearing. Make two passes.
