Much like the combo machines that condense all your woodworking needs into one machine, this jig will save you time, materials, and space.  Instead of making three separate jigs for common woodworking joinery, Doug Blacke found a way to combine all three into one super jig.  

The trick, an over-the-fence carriage holds interchangeable fixtures that cut three different joints.

No materials list, no detail whatsoever, Come on FWW don't lead us on either quit calling them 'Free Plans' or put up the real thing. I can build from photographs if necessary but they are not 'plans'

thearock thearock writes: I don't know if I'm too new in woodworking, or if I'm too old reading plans. It did take me several minutes to catch on that this was three plates that each attached to a slide mounted on the safety fence of a table saw. When I think of an article and set of plans for a set of three jigs I expect to see more than a paragraph on each especially when each jig attaches to a central slide and how each jig attaches. I also expect to see a drawing of each and if they are not drawn to scale then a clear representation of each critical point and clear measurements to all the critical points and what makes them so. Or an additional paragraph in the article about why a point is critical and what happens when these points aren't properly aligned. Or what happens if I want my wood to be thicker or wider than the author does.

rgdaniel rgdaniel writes: Is it just me, or is this not really a combo jig if you have to unscrew, for example, the vertical fence and re-attach it at 45 degrees, depending on what you're trying to do. Easier to make two or three jigs, purpose built and ready to use. Or am I missing something?
