Tenoning Jig Modified

This jig is an old Craftsman tenoning jig, but I never liked the thumb screw bolts to hold the work piece and the short vertical height off the table so..... after a few mods I came up with this version:

The right side of the jig is butted to the fence to make a reference stop. Then various thicknesses of shim can be inserted between the jig and fence for constant off sets moving the jig toward the blade, to minimize measuring and increase accuracy.

Thanks for posting this. I just made a tennon jig last week that rides the fence. After the glue dried, it's too tight and doesn't slide well.

I like the mod you made. Seems like it would take a lot of set up to get the tennon in the middle of the workpiece (using the shim, that is). Have you figured out a short cut, or would reversing the piece being cut be more accurate?

The toggle clamps make reversing it a snap, literally!
The shim can be used or not. There may be an occasion when it's better than measuring for the tenon width rather than reversing. It will always give a constant offset which should be your tenon width.
I also realized that I really don't need the original adjustable jig, if I use the fence as a guide....maybe a little more modification.... bill

More modified than ever

Since not every fence is "rideable"? I just eliminated the old Craftsman jig riding in the miter slot, and made a nice squared up block and and outrigger leg, to keep the unit from falling over. Those with Biesemeyer fences can also use this. The workpiece gets the same amount removed from each side when you flip it so the tenon is automatically centered. I like it!
