A jointer jig for the table saw.

Well here is a jig that I have been using for the past few weeks. The picture is an example of what the setup is like. But instead of the laminate, I got some clearance laminate shelves and used that by cutting in the thickness of the blade kerf half way through.

very nice solution

This method has been around for a long time, but for edge jointing without either a straight line rip jig OR a jointer it will work well. For those who may not understand the principle, it's like having vertical tables with a non-adjustable off set. The board enters on the infeed side and exits with a small amount removed by the exposed blade in the offset.

Constant inward and forward pressure will assure an accurate joint.

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)

It works great. I have even been able to use it as a guide to flatten my boards with the table saw if they are warped too badly for the planer

I use a similar method on my router table. My fence has two movable faces, I put some shim stock behind the out feed face for the desired thickness. Use a good straight bit in the router and it works great for 4/4 or less stock.

So this is just a board clamped to the fence and fence positioned so blade is just inline with the outfeed side with the extra thickness ?

I use the clamp piece to flat board method but I still find that the first couple inches are usually cut a little thinner, maybe my feed technique.

I have thought about that method, but I am on a super tight budget at the moment and I used my money to buy a sheet of mdf to build a saw sled. More worried about safety first. LoL, what am I saying here? That jig is far from safe. Guess I wanted to put the money towards a 1 x 3 x 6 board of laminate shelving to experiment with.

Honestly it works, and I am figuring things out as I go along. I have 12 pallets of wood to work with and build small things before I start looking into purchasing rough lumber.

You can and will dull the piss out of that one side of the blade though...

Whoever sharpens your blades may look at you a bit funny when you drop that one off.
