Picture of fence *PIC*

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.

There is a terrifying amount of blade exposure when sawing leg tapers. Any means of securing parts seems justified. In the Latta jig the leg and jig are captured against the table saw fence. Short of a fastening failure nothing can move or come loose when sawing. I believe this arrangement is safer than the sled riding in the table saw slot. Steve teaches at a college. I suspect he designed this jig with students in mind.

The disadvantage is that the fence needs to be positioned each time the gig is installed on the table saw fence. However, this is a trivial task.
