Crosscut Jig for Your Circular Saw

crosscut jig

I’ve an affinity for the round noticed. Maybe it comes
from constructing the again deck at my mother and father’ home with my
father after I was a child (my earliest reminiscence of actually getting
to construct something). Maybe it’s from the summers I spent
reworking homes and constructing fences to assist pay for
faculty. There are such a lot of makes use of for the round noticed, nevertheless it
does have one obtrusive deficiency: there isn’t any fence.

Certain, you should purchase attachments to assist minimize precisely. However why
purchase attachments when you’ll be able to construct a jig from scraps in your

For a challenge in our “I Can Do
internet sequence, host Chad Stanton constructed an superior
crosscut jig to get 90 diploma cuts each time he makes use of
his round noticed. We determined to make it a video “additional” so
our viewers might entry it any time.

Once I first noticed this video, I kicked myself for not having
considered constructing one earlier than. I had instant flashbacks of
all the cupboard installs and fence-building jobs the place this
jig would have been an unimaginable time-saver.

I personally suppose the round noticed typically will get a nasty rap
within the woodworking world. It’s just like the
block plane
of energy instruments in that sense. It’s a
easy software that offers you a whole lot of room to make errors.
And I’m excellent at making errors.

So take about eight minutes out of your day and watch
this cool video on how one can construct a crosscut jig for a round
noticed. If you happen to determine to construct one, and modify it, shoot me an
electronic mail so we are able to write about your modifications within the
PWM store weblog. In spite of everything, we solely get higher from follow
and studying from different woodworkers.
