    I bought an Incra jig. One of the best tools I've bought.

    That's a great idea about dimpling the sides.
    I think I'll try that, and save my Incra for delicate work.
    Maybe.

        I try the jig out on making box joints. It works really good.

          If anyone screws up their stock Ridgid Miter Gauge doing all of the things suggested here, and doesn't want to go the after market route, the exact same gauge is available from HF for $10. Worth it for the replacement bar alone! Price from Ridgid $30.

          Handle is black instead of Ridgid red.

            Oh MAN! Don't tell me HF is handling the RIDGID spare parts under the new business model.

            OH well, at least I have a local store!

              I decided to build the Jig in ShopNotes issue 62. From the looks, I feel a little safer with the hand placement. I have finished the base and getting ready to start the first removable face. I am able to get the base and five removable faces (1/4" 3/8" 1/2" 3/4" and a spare) out of a quarter of a sheet of 3/4" BB ply, so that is about $15.00 total (inc. hardware and hardboard)for everything.
