Not being the owner of a slider, How does it work?

It allows ripping on the siding carriage rather than leaning over the beam to use the rip fence. Can be used for parallel and tapered cuts in conjunction with the crosscut fence stop and clamps.400057

Thanks the added photo and clamps made you jig much clearer.

Thanks for the idea. I have been meaning to make something similar for my own slider and your set-up is right on time.

How are you doing the initial setting of the offset (assuming a straight parallel cut). Do you just slide the back position ref up to the crosscut? Set it, then slid eit back?

Crosscut a scrap using the fence stop and use that to set the jig off the blade.

If the arm is made square rather than round you make a test cut and measure the width then attach a piece of self adhesive measuring tape.

I must be thick, why didn't I think of that, it's just so obvious. Thanks for the tip.

Chris, that is how I set up the markings on the F&F jig.

Has anyone compared the two jigs?

My F&F jig to measure on the left side of the blade has an Incra fence on it as you know and as does yours. I had two issues with wider rips than the F&F could measure and also sheet goods. For the sheet goods if the sheet is thin then it will droop at the unsupported corner so I have been thinking about attaching some support in the same manner as this is done and at the same time for wider rips incorporating a parallel rip guide that drops out of the way when not needed. I was going to use a small aluminium extrusion but like all things it is on the list. I would like the extrusion to hinge and drop out of the way but be clear of the side of the cabinet so it does not have to be removed because I have found that if things aren't easy to use they don't get used.
