Used a piece of 3/4 mdf. Ripped a piece of uhmw plastic to fit snuggly in the slot on the sliding table and screwed it to the bottom of the mdf so it will index itself when itís removed and replaced. Itís held to the table with 2 t nuts. After installing it I ripped off the edge so as long as I always use the same blade all I need to do is line up my marks with the cut edge and clamp it down.388424

Looks like a great example of keeping it simple.

Nice, Steve. I built a similar one a few years ago and it works very well...handy and repeatable.

If you want to get ambitious you can add a rear cleat at one end and make it into a sideways sine vise. Then think of all the math you can do to set an angle.

I think my head just exploded��. I just mark where I want you the taper to start and stop then line the marks up with the cut edge of the jig.
