How to Make a Jig for Adjusting Miter Saws

Turn a scrap piece of plywood into a jig that will make setting your miter gauge quick and easy. From, here is how to make your own jig miter adjuster.

  • Take a piece of plywood that’s around 8″ by 12″ and rip both sides to make them parallel.
  • Cut the other sides of the jig, one at 90 degrees and one at 45 degrees (be extra careful to cut these sides accurately so that your jig will be effective).
  • Cut two grooves about 1/2″ deep so that the jig will fit the bar of your miter saw and you’ll be able to set your gauge to 45 degrees in both directions.
  • Simply use the square end of the jig when you want to set your miter saw to 90 degree angles.
