In this Tips From the Workbench video GCA Technical Services Manager Jack Landis shows how to make a simple wooden jig to help cut stocks to length and keep everything square and neat. His saw is using a Freud Thin Kerf blade for smooth and chip free cuts.

This simple and easy to make jig will help ensure that your stock-cutting jobs are accurate, easy, and give a good result that will keep your customers coming back to your business. Of course, fitting and shaping a new recoil pad is a whole other lesson.

If you have any tips of your own for this job, please share them in the comments below.

  1. Great little fixture. I have been using a carbide tipped plywood blade on my radial arm saw. I’ll put together one of these little fixtures next time I need to shorten a stock.
