TSO Big Foot jigs?
« on: May 20, 2020, 01:23 PM »

Just got my TSO Big Foot, haven’t used it yet but I can see how it is a big improvement. I did notice a couple of tapped holes in the face that goes on the work piece. Haven’t explored spacing or tap size but was wondering if anyone has used these for interesting jigs, etc.?

@Bill Fleming - thanks for your BDF-45 BigFoot purchase and a salute for spotting those additional holes.

The intent was to prove an attachment provision for some, as yet, unidnetified attachment. WE are always thinking ahead and want to leave options open for us - and for our customers - to provide for backward compatibility.

For now we will keep our ears to the ground to learn what uses for these attachment holes a customer thinks of. Perhaps an idea surfaces we can incorporate for added utility.

Let's see what other FOGers can add to this conversation.

Just a couple of weeks ago I needed to put dominos into some small parts (1.25 x 2.5”) so I made a little plywood jig and attached it to the Big Foot.
Worked great.  The Big Foot is a great addition to the Domino (I have an XL).
One suggestion for TSO: publish dimensions (offsets, thread sizes) for the holes. I had a quick look on the web site but didn’t find anything, and for this application I didn’t need high accuracy so took quick measurements, but it would be nice to have the real numbers.
