    Speed square jig for circular saw cuts

    A very Simple jig/addition to your Speed Square to easier align cuts with your circular saw.

    Sure this can be done with some pieces of plywood or making a complete jig out of wood, but the "stick" can easily be unscrewed for storage, or if you need to use the speed square as intended.

    Nice adaptation of the Speed Square without disabling it for other use. Extending the 'blade & cut marker' makes it perfect, really.

    Thank you very much! I really appricate that.

    I was thinking on making the marking stick with some kind of sliding holes, so I could push and release the the stick when not needed. Maybe too much work for something small like this. �� Thanks again!

    Slotted screw holes in the bar are feasible (versus the square), making the scale unreadable. A simple metal dowel pin will make the extensions position repeat dependably.
