Sliding tall fence

The “Ripping knife-edge bevels” tip in issue #82 compelled me to share this sliding tall fence jig that I use for similar circumstances. However, in addition to serving as a carrier for ripping knife-edge bevels on smaller boards, it makes a great tall fence for vertically supporting work to saw beveled edges for door panels and traditional solid wood drawer bottoms. The fixture straddles the fence for stability and includes slots for clamp access. Size and slot the unit to suit your work, making the saddle section fit your fence snugly enough to slide easily but without slop.
