MicroJig TJ-5000 Microdial Tapering Jig

Tables and chairs are just a few of the fine furniture projects that require tapered legs and tops. But most of us have been trained to setup our tablesaw to achieve perfectly straight, non-tapered cuts. Fortunately, a tapered cut is just a straight cut that is on an angle. So how do you master this useful technique? There have been two main types of tapering jig; Adjustable Angle Jigs and Fixed Angle Jigs. Adjustable style jigs are built with two straight fences attached in the back by a pivoting hinge which allows you to make different angled cuts. When using this style of taper jig your material rests against a stop block in the back and is not secured to your fixture. This requires you to push your jig and material through the cut while simultaneously applying side pressure to hold your stock against the jig, not an ideal scenario. And forget making narrow tapered furniture legs with this style of jig, your fingers just can't push and hold the stock and be far enough away from the saw blade to make this type of cut safely. Fixed angle jigs are purpose built for a specific job and are not adjustable. The fixed style jigs are safer than their adjustable cousins because they secure the workpiece with clamps. But since they are not adjustable you'll spend time and money building a fixture that is only good for making one angle taper.

The Micro Jig Microdial Taper jig takes tapered cuts to a whole new level of safety, accuracy and speed. Now you can cut tapers with surgical precision using the intuitive COLORMATCH system and enjoy hassle-free adjustments between repeat cuts with built-in MEMORYLOCK technology. The interlocking COLORMATCH system ensures the angle of your taper to 1/8th of a degree (incrementally up to 10 degrees) so you can work with precision. MEMORYLOCK technology maintains two independent stops so you can switch quickly and easily between two tapers on a single workpiece and work faster.

And that’s just the start; the Microdial's versatile design coupled with the GRR-Ripper's control and protection allows you to feed table legs in a whole new way. By using the precision gauge, you can accurately create unique and uncommon table legs with up to 8 tapered sides. Try doing that with your old style Fixed Angle or Adjustable taper jigs! Combine the Microdial Tapering Jig with 1 or 2 GRR-Ripper Advanced Model 200's to craft impeccably tapered legs. Achieve precise angles with the Microdial while safely powering through each cut with the GRR-Ripper. The GRR-Ripper 3D Pushblock system allows you to control pressure in three dimensions - downward, inward and forward - virtually eliminating kickback. Sold separately, see below. The MICRODIAL Tapering Jig gives you the ultimate precision when cutting tapered panels on the table saw too. Perfect for tapering large panels for table tops, small tapered panels for table aprons or lamps, and even making unique tapered pepper mills.

There are so many benefits to using the Microjig Microdial that we could write an entire book about them. Save time and have a look at this series of great product video’s to get an idea of how useful this great new tapering jig will be in your shop.
