If you own a table saw you must have one of these. This handy jig works with your rip fence to correct the cardinal rule of not using your miter gauge along with your rip fence to cut material. Results of that operation have caused serious accidents and injuries. This jig stands 2 1/2" high and fits most rip fences up to 1 1/8" wide. When setting up rip fence just make it 1" wider than the desired length of material you wish to cut. For example, if you want 11" lengths of 2" material you would set your rip fence to 12" with the jig mounted short of the front of the cutting blade. As the material is passed through the saw you have ample space to pass the cut material by the blade for recovery. Made of solid white oak for years of service. Handy knob mechanism secures the jig to the rip fence.
