Screw advance box joint jig

YouTube player

Which is a mouthful, but it makes sense if you think about it — a jig for a table saw that helps you make box joints with the help of a threaded rod controlled by a wooden gearbox. The maker, Joe Beuckman, began with a box joint jig from and then put his own spin on it. [Thanks, Dave!]

    Unless I am very much mistaken this video is of Mathais Wandel from rather than the credit you give.

      I’m pretty sure it is the right person in the video (Joe Beuckman) However I would point out that the Jig is used on a router table, whereas Matthias Wandel’s jig is designed to be used on a table Saw.

    One could use such an invention very well in Germany. Is it patented?

    I’ve done this; but using a sled that rides in my miter slots, and an index peg the width of the cut, located exactly the width of the cut from the blade. My personal preference for this type of joinery is using a dovetail jig.

    This looks like a very nice jig. The crank action looks much smoother than any screw driven jigs I have made.
