THINK I'VE FIGURED OUT HOW TO BUILD 24'' DOVETAIL JIG. PROLLY HAVE $25. OR LESS IN MAIN PART. THINKING ON CUTTING/FORMING THE FINGERS USING ROUTER TABLE AND STRAIGHT CARBIDE BIT. PURTY WELL KNO THIS'LL BE SH** CANED LIKE MY ''PUSH BLOCK''. O'WELL, OLD COUNTRY BOY WILL SURVIVE,,,MAYBE SOMEPLACE ELSE.

 

TRACE AN OLD HANDSAW HANDLE ON TO PROPER WOOD TO MAKE A HANDLE, MAKE TWO OF'M. CUT PIECE OF 1/4 / 3/8 PLY BOUT 22'' LONG X 12'' WIDE. RIP/SAW OFF THE BOTTOM OF THE 22'' PIECE SO THERE'S A 1/4'' HEEL(PUSH BLOCK?) THAT'LL BE LOCATED UNDER THE HANDLES MENTIONED  MINUTE AGO. GLUE/SCREW THE 22'' (HANDLE CUT INTO 22'') SO HANDLE IS 3 THICKNESSES THICK AN COMFORTABLE. YEAW IT KINDA ZEMBLES A HANDSAW, BUT THE SAW BLADE IS PLYWOOD. 

  USE THIS TO PUSH NARROW PIECES PAST SPINNING BLADE ON TABLE SAW.

  DESIGNED TO KEEP YA FINGERS / HANDS CLEAR OF THE BLADE.

  WANNA MAKE IT DELUX MODEL, GLUE / ATTACH SAND PAPER ON THE END OF 22'' SO IT'LL KINDA DIG IN AND GUIDE THE STRIPS THRU.

DON'T WRAP OR GLUE SANDPAPER UP THE SIDES OF THE 12'' PART, BLADE WILL MOST LIKELY GRAB / PICK IT UP.

Sounds like it'll work. Are you going to use Baltic Birch plywood?

 

Do you have a picture of the push block??  It sounds pretty neat.

HEY THANKS, PUSH BLOCK MENTIONED WAS THE 1/4'' HEEL LOCATED ON BOTTOM OF 22'' PIECE, UNDERNEATH / CLOSE TO THE HANDLE.

  GUESS YA COULD GLUE A 1/4'' THICK PIECE OF (what ever ya got) FOR/AS PUSH BLOCK ONTO (saw grove in ''whatever ya got'' the 22'' piece will fit into, glue it)THE BOTTOM OF 22'' PIECE.  THE LONG 22'' PIECE IS TO HOLD WHAT'S BEING SAWED DOWN/SAFELY, SO SAW BLADE WON'T PICK UP THE LITTLE FLIMSY STRIP BEING SAWED FOR SOMETHING YA BUILDING.

  THIS JIG IS INTENDED TO MAKE USE OF THOSE OLD HANDLES, THEIR POSITION GIVES A DOWNWARD FORCE ON 22'', & push block, SAME AS A handsaw.

Must be nice to know how to 'splain things like this. Maybe someone will jump in and 'splain this better'n I have. Gotta go, working on nother book.

You can see, the fingers don't get close. And, walnut is cheaper than a Sawstop.

Careful shouting that out...Gass will be banning walnut next:P

What's the extra slot to the left on the saw table Gene? Is this the table on your SS?

Ya know, I've never used it. Maybe for a blade for when you need more support to the right? I try not to lift anything that long.:lol: 

Ahh...it just came to me. It's the slot used when the table is tilted for a 45 cut. But, you won't find me tempting fate by doing that. That's what SCMS are for.

Yeah Buck, no problem finding it. And, it's thick enough so it can run over the blade for thin rips. When the bottom gets too chewed up, I'll trim it off and glue on a shoe.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
