Some of the pickiest machining operations require a jig that won't lift or tip in the slightest, and that's where the new Rockler Dovetail Miter Bar excels. With its 14° wedge-shaped profile, it holds your jig firmly to the work surface for precision, consistency and repeatability where lifting is a concern. Whether you're cutting box joints, finger joints or thickness planing with a router, adding a Dovetail Miter Bar to your jig will increase accuracy and reduce production time. The uses of this one are limited only by your imagination. Sold in 18" or 24" lengths, the Dovetail Miter Bars can easily be cut shorter if needed.Features:Rockler Dovetail Miter Bars are designed to match the profile of our 5/8" Diameter, 14 degree Dovetail Router Bit (91089, sold separately), but it will also match virtually any 5/8" 14° dovetail bit.1/8" tab along the bottom edge of the Dovetail Miter Bar fits into a saw kerf to prevent slippage, and to increase the strength.Screws not included, since screw length would vary too much for different applications.For 3/4" material, we recommend using #6 1" screws.Dovetail keys are made of aluminumFor the lowest possible friction while sliding the jig, use with nylon tape (e.g. 70615).When using nylon tape on your jigs, be sure to make allowances for the thickness of the tape when you rout the dovetail channel.
This blade's specially designed triple chip tooth design produces extremely smooth, true surfaces for gluing and finish work. There is no need for sanding or jointing after the cut. The ideal working range is from 1/8" to 1" thick. This blade also features laser cut anti-vibration slots, practically eliminating the vibration that resonates in standard blades. With this ultimate ripping blade, there is no need for stabilizers.The Perma-SHIELD coating covers the blade plate and cutting edge in a protective layer, reducing heat build-up. Perma-SHIELD blades resist binding in large volume cutting, reducing subsequent blade warp. The coating lubricates the blade, allowing it to spin freely, and eliminates pitch and debris build-up on the blade.Also available with the economical Silver I.C.E coating.

Finding an effective jig or fixture for a woodworking operation can be as elusive and time-consuming as designing a great piece of furniture, a sailboat, or a ukulele. It takes solid woodworking knowledge and some problem-solving skills, with a good dose of inspiration thrown in. Even a moderately complex setup can pose numerous choices: What tool or machine is best for the operation? Should the jig move the wood over the machine or guide the machine past the wood? How does the workpiece need to be referenced and clamped? Should the jig be adjustable? Most of the woodworkers I’ve met delight in solving challenging jigging problems. But tackling these problems requires a basic understanding of jig function and design. This book will teach you how to make these time saving devices and help improve everything you build in your shop. 272 pages. Contents: Section 1: Function and Design Why Use Jigs?
