Default Dusts tee system

this is how i held the turtle deck jig together permanently and how i continually reset the wing jig level and straight many times during wing construction. The Tees have a notch cut out and the jig has a notch cut out so they snap together and hold everything straight and square, very quickly.

the tees are tongue and grooved together

OK in pic 1 can you see the "T" formed by two 3 inch pieces of plywood tongue and grooved together and then in pic 2 you can see the length of the bottom of the "T".

It is very easy to cut a parallel 3" piece of plywood. Take two parallel pieces and glue together in the "t" and you get real straight.

Notch out both pieces carefully and you get great spacing, rigidity and spacing.

On the turtle-deck, shown, you simply put it together once and use it.

On the wing jig, you must put it together many times and this method really, really is time saving and increases quality by allowing fast accurate jig placement.

The plans method is to continually bondo pieces in place to position them, that would be ok for the turtledeck, but a real pain for the wing jig.

To use this method you also have to increase the size of the jig by 2 inches in each direction that you have a "T"

Hank, could you post a pic of a full length wing tee and a wing jig showing the notches?

Default Slave Compliance to Request

OK Master, I will obey!

I will get the request pics and post on Monday, 19 July. Sorry for the lag, but my workstation (PC) at home is inoperative. You can beat me later for me not being responsive enough.

BTW; My garage (Manland) has a Cozy boat!

Life gets better every time I spend time in Manland building.

Hank, you are a great man, worthy of all of the jigs and fixtures we donated to your bird.

A note about the pics, when in use the tees fully seat into the jig and are held in place each time with screws and the notches are exactly the same length from each side and spaced exactly.

Your boat is lookin good, great work.

Resistance if futile (especially if you were married to an Illinois Senator type Oh Jeri!)

OK! I get it

I've read a description of how to line up the wing bits that read like codswallop, this plan looks useful.

My other hobby is building furniture and my shop moniker is Mr. Jig. Why do it by hand when you can jig it up. My fixtures tend to be overdone, too complex, strong and accurate.

BUT this system is really worthwhile. It takes a little time to make the tee's, but the time is paid back big time in the use.
