This is in the works. I've been collaborating with the people at iGaging to make it happen and they're working up some prototypes.

Damn hard to make a better mouse trap when the one you already have is catching so many mice! ;)
I would have bet you were already onto this.

My most wished for item would have to be a serrated solution, which you are also working on.

I had a dream about a "female" dovetail base bar with "male" vise clamp and L brackets.
So you can clamp the knife, then centre it.
But how to get the angle dimples right?

Chris,

I'll have to get back to you on that one, cause it's Top Secret! There are a couple ways to do it though and I'm working on one and will start on another before long.

I'll keep dreaming in the mean time. ;)

Thanks!

I like the female dovetail track idea, with male dovetails on the riser and L brackets.

Perhaps another sliding rule (with dimples) in the track, how to allow for the slight tilt on the right side of the clamp though.
I mean the left will always be fixed unless it's back to the drawing board.

Perhaps a clamp that squeezes from both sides?

Or do I just adapt a lathe and use that? ;)

The designs I'm working with have free floating, self-centering clamps. They always put the mid line of the knife at the mid line of the jig.

Of course you would do this, that right hand side is a pain. ;)

I'm guessing a central adjusting bolt which has one half left hand thread and the other is right hand? ;)

Don't tell me.
