Picture This Jig

Have you ever pulled out a jig that you haven’t used in a while and realized that you don’t entirely remember how to set it up or use it? Me, too. To prevent that, I’ve added a new tool to my shop–an inexpensive digital camera. After setting up a jig and any attendant tools, I take a few relevant snapshots, print them out, and tape them to the jig and/or stash the images in a “jig setup” folder for future reference. This approach works well as long as I can remember where I keep the camera.
