I was asked for details on my jig
So here's the photos. It's basically an adjustable paralleogram that will accept what ever wood width I need. The gap you see is because the piece of scrap I threw in there was not squared on the jointer first.... I saw the gap and wondered ...what?
Ran it through/over the jointer and the gap closed right up.
The "micro" adjuster is a standard Porter Cable edge guide. You snug up the stock in the jig using the knobs, then center the bit on the stock with the micro adjuster.
A spacer is need to support the long end of the guide, depends on the hight of the stock.
It's a little "gimicky", but when I have 30 mortises to make, I'm not gonna use a mortising machine. I have a nice Powermatic, but it's just too much effort. I could use it to square the rounded corners from the router bit, however, I didn't do that either, just used a mortise chisel.
The router and edge guide are free to move on the top of the workpiece since it's attached only on one edge of the jig.
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)
