Ask any seasoned power tools using woodworker about ripping thin strips from a board anywhere less than 5 inches in width and they will shudder. Even if they didn't, most times the guide cannot be clamped to the board being ripped making this operation a most scary and difficult one. But what if we could hold the table saw static and slide the wood through the blade I can already hear you say reverse mounted circular saw But no I use a platform of pine which is 1 and a half inch high and 5 feet long and might graduate to an aluminium square or MS square profile.
And this jig does the job great! It allows you to cut as many strips of wood that are the same thickness as you can. All without moving the table saw fence. Not having to move the fence is a huge factor when you have to cut a large quantity of strips. In my case I cut well over strips. Imagine having to move the fence times!
