The first criterion for this project was "They have to surpass the kind you can buy ready-made at the home-supply center." To do that, we specified better stock, requested a cleaner, trimmer look, designed a more positive means of opening the louvers than the center-mounted, staple-connected adjusting rod, and demanded construction procedures that didn't require unusual tools or complex jigs and fixtures. We improve on the basic stapled design and simplify the building process.
This jig allows you to rip thin strips on the left side of the blade, eliminating the danger of pushing narrow strips between the saw and fence. Since the strip is not trapped between the blade and fence, there is also less risk of binding and kickback. It's simple to use; a single knob locks the jig into the miter track and locks your setting at the same time. Ball bearing guide keeps your workpiece firmly against the fence for perfect repeatability. Use the graduated scale to fine-tune for extremely thin strips.
