I think yours is more practical. Now if I can just get some more clamps.

That is kinda what I did, except I just clamp some laminated plywood, that is 16' long, to the fence and use that as the straight edge.

I like your sled type a little better, I think that it would work so much better for shorter stock.

I might just have to build one of those.

Thanks for sharing.

Woodnthings - I see in your latest photo of your jig from this thread, http://www.woodworkingtalk.com/f5/jo...jointer-39152/, that you have new adjustment knobs on your board straightening jig. Where did you get those. I am in the process of finishing up my jig and those would be extremely handy. - Bob

They have quite a nice assortment of knob shapes and threads.
I would have liked to use a smaller, lower knob but those were in my "knobs" box at the time. bill

Yeah Bill. Just one of the many uses of a rail saw.

You could use same thickness material on the other side of the blade so there will be no fall off problems. Just need to clamp a board to the TS top. That way you could use thicker support material.

additional support is not really needed

The design of the sled using a thin bottom piece of 1/4" Masonite is made much stiffer by the Oak 1" X 3" mounting piece. The 1/4" drop doesn't cause any issues and a 3/4" piece would just add weight, reduce the maximum depth of cut and serve no real purpose in my view. My design works just fine.......

Apparently so, at least for the past three years, huh?
