• Are you looking for a coupon code to buy my software? You can get one from lots of 3rd party sites but they won't work. My software never goes on sale and has never been discounted. The only coupon codes that are given is when I give a club presentation and I offer a discount to the attendees. Other than that, everyone pays the same price.

Slot mortising jig

ok i know this has zilch to do with segmented turning but I've spent the last couple of months developing this jig. The jig started in plywood using drawer runner which was too unstable, which caused me to rebuild it in 20mm pvc plastic sheet buy a new bigger router and buy two set of linear guide rails meant for use on cnc machines.Cost me a fortune in the end BUT it is a really good jig, weighs a tonne. what u think!

the original design was from Ryan Nodwell from http://shopbuilt.org he came up with the folding wedge height adjustment idea

I've seem this design before and it looks like it will work fine. I've thought about building a slot mortising jig and have seen this design on Youtube. I think if I was going to go ahead and build something I would probably build the one from http://www.garagewoodworks.com/video.php?video=v16 .
It has been several years since I've done any flatwork other than cabinets so I doubt I'll every get around to building either.

fair play, that design is great but i went with this design as it is more compact, having a small workspace means space is precious, i can store this on a shelf out of the way
