Just wondering what you opinions are for a TS tenon jig. Like this one. Is the quality the same with the different companies? Delta,Rockler,woodcraft,grizzly. Which do you think has better options?

Yep, they all about the same...

But you can make a pretty cool one if you want: http://www.woodworkingtalk.com/f27/tenoning-jig-modified-15905/
Than one rides against the fence, so if you fence is accurate and can be fine tuned in small increments, it will work fine. If not you're better off with a commercially made one with fine adjustment feature. :yes:

you'll find a few hours of enjoyable reading here:

What do you mean here AL?

....back it with a 6" wide board...
Are you holding the backer vertically?
Are you laying the workpiece flat on the table and "chewing" the waste away by multiple cuts?
I don't understand..... :blink:

If you hold the work vertically, it may get cumbersome if it's 3 or 4 ft long, like on a table leg or stretcher. I had to make a kerf in the end of a replacement bed rail a while back for the existing hardware, it was all I could do to manage the height. Others later suggested laying the work flat on the bench and using a circ saw. If using a table saw, the tenon length is limited to the maximum height of the raised saw blade, usually about 3" or so.

Actually, with a fine tooth blade, the bandsaw can make some fast and easy tenons. :yes:

I'll be backkkkkkk...... :gunsmilie:
