    I made the same one — a few decades ago Still have it!
    Don't let it bring you down,
    It's only castles burning,
    Just find someone who's turning,
    And you will come around

    Same here. Built it, but never really used it after testing.

    I did one too, but mine is used for cutting coves. Same thing except it opens to 45*. Wow, that was 25 years ago or more.

    Nice Job! I like seeing that classic old saw.
    Missouri, Where the Walnut trees grow straight, tall, and gigantic. Therefore, it's not that bad.

    The jig is working well. Somehow, other methods worked in the past I guess, so never made one til now.
