A Week In The Workshop 192




Hi Everyone.


Just a quick second attempt at that bevel jig; this version works well and doesn't require you to separate the jig into the two pieces, so it'll work with the original and Plus jigs that have maybe been glued or nailed together. This version makes it easier to secure the LT jig to the bevel jig too - no need to screw it down, so less invasive.


Out of the box it won't work with the current LTJ30 unfortunately - not if you're using 18mm board, anyway - as the smaller 'half' of the jig is a little too long and fouls on the workpiece; a 5mm 'haircut' sorts this out, and I think I’ll look into shortening the next batch of jigs by 5mm.


I've drawn on the jigs what the approximate measurements need to be (assuming you're using 18mm material) and I'll get a quick drawing up in the plans forum later on.


Thank you all for your kind comments and condolences, enjoy the rest of the weekend and I’ll be back in a short while.


Peter


Edited to add, quick sketch now added in the plans forum, link below. Thanks, P

A really clever yet simple way to adapt and use the LTJ30! I agree with Jonathan, I find the "design methodology" videos to be quite informative and they get me thinking of possible solutions to my design/building problems. Excellent stuff!

Just a thought. Everyone using the jig must have a router and 45degree chamfer cutters are usually amongst the first bought. Cutting with a not so decent table saw or track saw or even by hand could cause 'user wobble' - could enough clearance be created with a deepish chamfer or even roundover?

BTW - Even though I have a domino I really enjoy the 'Design Methodology' videos. The process is fascinating. I think basic builders will learn as much from the process as from the skills taught.
