30 deg Cut

I wanted to make six trapezoid shaped pieces from 2x4's. A jig of some sort would make it so I didn't have to measure each one. My Jet TS miter gauge can swing to 30 deg, so I could push the workpieces through the blade without any auxiliary pieces. The miter gauge fence also slides side to side. I adjusted it to have end flush with the end of the workpiece and was able to zip through all six pieces in no time.

I do a lot of 10 cuts on the table saw versus the miter saw. The Microjig clamps allow me to build my own jigs, such as the one in these photos. I use a longer version as a jointer jig so I can make a straight cut in curved boards on the table saw (I have a jointer plane but not a mechanized jointer).

Everything works out in the end. If it's not working, you're not at the end.

Are those grooves dovetails or dados?

What type of clamp is that to fit in the slot?

I just picked up a pair. I had to stop at rockler anyway, so I got these to. Looks like a good solution for adding clamps to my work bench.

Membership in the Steelworkers union is optional as Virginia is a right-to-work state.
