Craftsman Taper Jig
This is one of those times where I wish I had spent my money on something else, like a TV dinner, perhaps or a new plastic raft oar. This thing is flimsy and made of thin aluminum which allows it to flex a bit when used on a table saw with an aluminum top! A cast iron table helps to some degree but not enough to maintain consistency of tapers. I found as much as a 1/8th in difference in four legs and that is noticeable! Another serious concern I had was the small tab at the end that is supposed to hold the stock in place. In short, I had to fight it! I too made one myself a few years ago and it is still making better tapered legs and it has the added benefit of clamps to hold the workpiece in place during the milling operation. I get the idea of this type design but I know more people who have bought these only to go to a more robust design with better safety features. Sears can resell a better version of this jig!

Extremely easy to use

I have been looking at the Craftsman Taper Jig for a little while and finally decided to purchase it and give it a try. I took my new jig home and went to the shop and opened the box. I took out all of the contents along with the instruction & safety sheet. The assembly was quite simple and easy to do and took no time at all to complete. I read a few other reviews where this was extemely flimsy, but it seems to be sturdy enough to the job that it was intended for. There are home made jigs and there are store bought jigs. there are high end jigs, mid range jigs, and low end jigs. I have seen cheaper made and better made and I would probally place this jig in the mid range. If you plan on extensive and heavy daily use, I would suggest a higher end jig, but if you will be using this for medium use I would say this jig would work great for your shop. It is very easy to use and takes no special alterations to your table saw, no matter which saw that you have. You can even use this jig on a radial arm saw. I took a few scrap pieces of wood and just played with the jig to give it a try and it works very well. There is a built in guage on the jig and it has some adjustment and I just used my angle guage and set it up to my guage and then tightened the built in guage down and now I am set. Now that I have it set up and done playing, my new jig is ready for use on a real project. Time to go and make something new....

I would recommend this product to a friend.

I Replaced my Worn Out Homemade Jig and Happy I Did...

If you spend much time woodworking and especially making tables or furniture, sooner or later you'll want to create a tapered table leg.  To perform this cut accurately you'll need a tapering jig like this one from Craftsman.

I used to use a homemade tapering jig that I have had for several (many) years.  The original design was one that I actually got from Norm Abrams TV series the New Yankee Workshop.  It served me very well.

Over time however, from years of use it had gotton a little sloppy in its adjustments.  I decided to replace it with this model instead of making another one.

This jig has everything you need.  The beam spreads smoothly and the locking mechanism is easy and accurate.  The powder coated finish allows the jog to glide effortlessly across the table of your saw.

Check it out the next time your in the store.  I think you'll agree that it is a nice jig for the price.

 

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great for the price

This jig is very easy to use! The materials are kinda cheap and it's a good idea to double check your measurments with a compass but for the price, you can't go wrong.
