this jig is no exception. However, it is both simple and fast to make
with stuff you already have in your router box.

seconds)------ This is the final video
in the ellipse series, and as you can see, it takes much less time

best and cheapest clamps for solid surface edge buildups. No mar,
no rust, no fuss. You make them in seconds yourself from scrap pvc
schedule 40 pipe. (5 second advertisement, 1 minute video on youtube).
This link will take you off this site.
For you watching,
installing the clamps on an angle, as Chuck Miller of "Fine Homebuilding"
magazine does, distributes even pressure across the width of the rip
beneath. It also prevents the bottom rip from sliding in toward the
cabinets after being greased up with adhesive. That can be a problem
with spring clamps if installed perpendicular to the counter top edge
because of the accumulated weight of the handles.

Chuck! And thank you for a great video! Better Faster Cheaper!

Cutting steel tubing with the Milwaukee
Metal Cutting skill saw. ( 9.17 MB)
Model 6370, 8"
blade with 5/8" arbor. Comes with "Endurance" blade
- a very good blade. A structural steel fabricator, buddy of mine,
turned me on to this saw. The saw turns about 3500 RPM and cuts steel
glassy smooth, without burrs and without heating the steel. The blade
is rated at 5,000 RPM.
If you can't justify the saw but
have an old chop saw or skill saw with the right arbor and RPM range
you might want to pick up a blade for the odd job. Eye protection
an absolute must!!
