    [Rebuild] Tenonning Jig

    Hi here is a rebuild of a tool found in the encyclopedia :


    Here is my version, slightly different, I found a little improvement to make

    The front is the same, except I didn't have phenolic plywood, so I made it with outdoor plywood.


    Here is the improvement, to get a more clear reference and guaranty that the workpiece is old square to the surface of the table, I enlarged the strut with the handle towards the right, so that it slides on the table.


    The assemblies are made as on the original one.


    To have a good gliding on the aluminium and steel, I rubbed the sliding surfaces with paraffin wax.


    See this article on my website for more details, I have included a demo of making a tenon with it :

    Cheers !

    Christophe,
    Your jig adaptation is beautifully made using the outdoor plywood. I have a couple questions: 1) what are the approximate dimensions of the vertical jig carriage? 2) did you make your own table saw fence from an aluminum u-channel or did it come with the saw?
    Thank you for the posting and link to you article.
    Paul

    Hi Paul,
    Thanks for the comment,
    For the dimensions, if I remember well, it is 30cm high.
    And yes, the fence is the original one, of square section, and it is anchored on both ends.
    I really like my new Schepach (PRECISA 3) saw.
    After some setup, it is really accurate, and these fine tuning mechanisms I have both on the parallel guide and on the stop of the carriage are magical !
    Christophe
    Cheers !
    Christophe

    Hi Christophe -- Thank you for the dimension. I am thinking about building a new table saw fence and the version on the Schepack is what I had in mind because of its extra width and better support for jigs -- Thanks again, Paul

    Thanks Christophe! I've added your Tenoning Jig to our Jigs category, as well as to your builder page: Christophe Mineau's Homemade Tools.

    BTW, I fixed the link (to the original jig's HomemadeTools.net entry) in your post, but you'll need to correct the one on your site.
