Default Made me a compound jig.

This may be old but it sure helped me so maybe it will help another newby, I took 2 - 2X2 (1 1/2 X 1 1/2 Actual size) pieces about 8" long and drilled a hole in both about 1/2" from the end. the I got 2 - 3/8" bolts with wing nuts and stuck through the holes so all I have to do is loosen the wing nuts, spread the boards apart and insert my compound item in between them and tighten the wing nuts. It works great and makes it a lot easier to hold onto and in most cases eliminates using the clear tape, which I hate (Saw dust get under it). I know a pic would have been better but I don't know how to do that right now (somewhat coputer illeterate). Hope this helps someone. Oh, drill the holes at least 1/2" so there is room to wiggle the bolts and it makes it easier to get all three pieces to lay flat on the table.

Sounds like the one I made last year when I began cutting compound items..Here is a pic of mine. Is this close to what you are describing?

I use mine all the time and yep it is very handy. I made another one which is a little longer than this one for larger projects as well. About the same size as yours...

Here is a tip sheet for you on posting pics..hope it helps you. I've had several folks tell me they copy and paste it into word so they can print it out and keep it by their computer for later reference.

1st open another browser window (Or print out these instructions) and open this thread in it so you can read and follow this guideline..

Here is the preferred way to post photos. This method will apply a thumbnail so that messages load faster, keeping those who are still on dial up in mind.

If it is a new thread scroll down below the message box to additional options and look for manage attachments,Click on Manage Attachments, click Browse, find your file name on your computer, click it, then click Upload. It may take a few seconds to load.
Once you see the file name under current attachments you can close the window.
If you want you can Preview Post (a wise choice) then if all is well, click on Submit reply.

If you are uploading a picture to an existing thread (conversation)
Click on the Go Advanced button under the reply box, Click on Manage Attachments, click Browse, find your file name on your computer, click it, then click Upload. It may take a few seconds to load.
Once you see the file name under current attachments you can close the window.
If you want you can Preview Post (a wise choice) then if all is well, click on Submit reply.
Good luck
