Hands-Free Tenoning jig

Cut Tenons Safely on the Tablesaw With Micrometer-Like Precision by Joe Wajszczuk

Cutting tenon cheeks on a tablesaw without a tenoning jig is dangerous. This inexpensive shop-made jig, which runs in your saw's miter slot, can safely handle stock up to 4 in. thick and 6 in. wide. A clever stop-arm mechanism allows you to cut tenons of a precise thickncss repeatedly, while a notched acrylic plate indicates the exact position of the saw kerf on a short measuring tape attached to the base. To zero the indicator plate, slide the fence until it touches your blade, then screw on the plate with the left side of the notch resting on zero.

To use the tenoning jig, screw a piece of scrapwood against the stop block to prevent tearout, then clamp your work-piece to the fence with the hold-down clamp. Set the blade height and location, and push the jig and workpiccc firmly and steadily past the blade. A
