BANDSAW JIG
« on: April 13, 2020, 03:18:35 PM »
Hi

Thought I might show you this quick and dirty jig I made years ago for holding awkward shaped parts or holding parts at an angle

A bit of 6mm ally plate has a series of random holes drilled and tapped 6mm



The ally plate is screwed to a block of wood



The next photos show the jig in use







I can use the clamps from my X1 mill

Cheers

Rich

That's spot on, easy to make and makes the horizontal bandsaw so much more useful.  That's another item I've seen here that I shall need to copy!

Hi

I forgot to mention it was one of those quick lash ups to do a job with the intention of making something better one day  ::)

Cheers
