    Look at this simple fence lock. A cam cut in wood swivels on a dowel and pulls the angle plate towards the operator to lock it. Ingenious!

    Drill Press Jig

    Drill Press Jig 2

    wonderfulwoodworking.com

    This jig will perfectly centre a dowel in the drill press. Begin by drilling the top scrap shown with a bit matching the dowel size. Cut a saw kerf in the scrap through the centre of the hole. Another piece of scrap is clamped to the table and drilled with the dowels' matching bit. Insert the dowel in that hole. Then without changing the set up insert the bit for the dowels' centre hole. Slip the jig over the standing dowel and clamp it tight as shown in the photo with a small C-clamp.

    This simple to build jig can transform a table saw into a raised panel cutter. Once again the box design of most table saw fences provides the stable and precise track for this jig.
