Tools: Safer table saw Scarf jig *PIC*

The Table Saw safety thread always brings to mind my accident with a badly designed scarf jig. I know I have posted it before but if it keeps from someone from going through what I did.

This jig has you standing to the side out of the "line of fire". The Cutoff falls on the table and the blade is snug against the jig so there is little (but no impossible) for the blade to catch the cutoff and launch it. Best of all it creates near perfect mating surfaces.
