Probably Microjig's dovetail clamps would work as well.

Chuck I'm impressed that your mortising 5mm stock when the smallest tenon is just under 4mm. Not a lot of wiggle room. I guess this jig makes that possible. BTW I use my home made carmonius version (and soon to buy this jig) for doing small boxes so I also mortise into faces as well as edges. I use an L shaped push block to keep the piece vertical and hard up against the fence using one of the clamping elements clamps. I obviously needed a 20mm hole which I drilled in the middle of the jig. Just another use which works perfectly not shown in any of the videos

John,

I've done Dominoes with 5mm stock before: https://www.festoolownersgroup.com/member-projects/sorting-trays-(5mm-ply)-done-with-df500-4mm-tenons/msg662850/#msg662850

The joinery table will use a shim on the table instead of a shim on the machine, with improved accuracy. The set-up will also be simpler.

Chuck, Thanks for alerting us to 5mm capability. I just tried that on the Veritas table.  The .093 acrylic + 2 sheets of paper did it.  If you have additional posts or photos on how you have applied this in the past, we would appreciate it.  Sandy

Sandy,

The sorting trays are the only project I used 5mm ply on, but I saw the potential of the Veritas joinery table to do similar tasks that require precision and more.
