Review

I’ve made countless tablesaw jigs and sleds over the years, using hardwood guides that fit into the miter slot.
But almost without fail they bind in the summer and wiggle in the winter as they swell and shrink with seasonal humidity changes. ZeroPlay Guide Bars eliminate those problems for smooth-gliding, perfect-fitting jigs. Each guide bar consists of two thin, 9-1/4"-long pieces of sturdy glass-filled nylon. Stack them together in a miter slot, and when you push the top one forward, opposing wedges on each piece tighten the fit perfectly. Then secure the two halves with screws and attach your jig or sled. I rebuilt several of my jigs using ZeroPlay Guide Bars, and they work better than ever. You can buy individual guide bars, or get a kit that includes two guide bars and two ZeroPlay Guide Stops, 1-1/2"-long fixtures that come with a bolt and knob that lock in T-track. Attach a common hold-down (not included) and one of these stops works great for positioning a stopblock on a router table or securing a workpiece on a drill press. —Tested by Jan Svec
