Hi all,

On this forum you might recognize me as the inventor of the Domino jig for small parts. Well...I'm back with a new jig build.

I buried this deep down in the youtubethread in "Fun games and diversions" subcategory...but, imo it's worth it's own thread so people will find it. If anyone is upset with the cross posting I can delete the other post. [unsure]

Anyway, I think my latest jig, "The Superjig" might be worth watching if you're interested in jigs or woodworking as a whole. It's a super accurate box joint/tenon jig on steroids, mainly developed for table saw but will work on router tables as well if you have a miter channel. I call it a gamechanger and I think it is. It's accuracy is within 0.03mm and it's easily indexable in steps 0.05mm. As I say in the videos, plans and build videos will follow if the interest is big enough.

3 parts, each around 20 mins. Any questions just let me know [smile]

Hej Ola, det är en fin redskap!

Nice work! That seems to be a very easy to use tool that offers some great accuracy. I'll be looking forward to the follow up posts. I might build one myself.

By the way: I fully agree on the manual vs automated version. KISS has its place in woodworking too!

If you want simple to just make finger joints then use something like this:
340520-0
Does exact same thing with the same speed and accuracy. Attaches to your existing miter gauge.

If you enjoy building cool machines, then OP's version is great.

@Svar

You should see this as a joinery jig for the tablesaw, as I say in video#2 I cut tenons more often than boxjoints. I set up a tenon cut under 30s and I know the tenon will be within 0.05mm of the target, in most cases better than that. I can set up a double tenon in about a minute, with the same accuracy.

I'm a part time pro woodworker and I never build jigs for the sake of it. I build to improve speed and/or accuracy.

When it comes to boxjoints, the only set up needed with my jig is pretty much to set the blade height and align the blade with the edge of my work piece. My jig and others using indexing/screws movement doesn't add up accumulative tolerances. Also I can cut multiple parts in one go which really speeds up the process.

 I used a similar to the one in you pic for a 30cm boxjoints and the headache to tune if for the 30th finger to fit as good as the 5th or 10th...well.

The one in your pics is ok for smaller parts and set up should be quick if you buy the templates for it. It could be quicker making the actual cuts as it's lighter and easier to push.

The Superjig is now twice as good, at least for boxjoints. Until this week I thought it could only make boxjoints on even millimeter numbers. So, I sat down with my sketchbook to figure out how difficult the odd ones would be.

Turned out they are almost as easy to make as the even ones. Video update on this subject.
