kerfed lining jig
This jig is used on the bandsaw to cut evenly spaced kerfed lining for guitars and mandolins. After dimensioning the stock into 30-60-90 triangles it is inserted into the jig and the first cut is made. After the first cut, the little arm with the rubber band providing tension registers the same distance for all subsequent cuts as the the stock is pushed into the fixture/jig. A depth stop in the miter slot determines depth of cut.

Materials are scraps from around the shop. Mahogany, Ebony and Rosewood.
this shot shows a closeup of the registering arm that allows the stock to move forward through the slot, but not backwards. A simple rubber band provides the tension.
Jig in use. You can see here that the depth stop is just a simple piece of wood clamped in the miter slot. The piece of wood on the left of the jig guides the exiting stock out of the way of the arm of the saw.
