Does anyone know how to make an adjustable jig/fixture to make long angle cuts on a table saw. For example, I want to make a long 18 degree cut on a 2x4. I saw someone of a TV program a year or more ago make a simple adjustable jig but I can't recall how he did it.

Depends how long -

A sliding table is the traditional way to do this. I belive there are jigs available in wood working catalouges also for up to a couple of feet.

For anything ;longer, I would be making some other sort of unique jig setup on a bench for a circ saw.

Excellence is its own reward!

Here's a site that illustrates the use....

That is exactly what I was looking for. I made the jig yesterday and made the cuts I needed.

Thank You,
