Easy Siding,Soffit Jig

Just passing this along. Made one recently for a job and it really speeds up the cutting. Find some scrap 1x4"'s and a piece of 3/4" plywood for a base lets say 20"X16".
Attach on top of the base the first long rail. Then double up what your cutting, place along side and install the second long rail. ( I used 1 5/8 screws counter sunk. The screw tips come out a little but thats OK. It keeps the jig from sliding on your table) Their width is determined by what your cutting. If you have two different sizes, go with the larger one. Very easy to make the width smaller later. Then attach one small rail square to the base rails. Place your saw next to that and attach your second rail at the saws width and add an 1/8th for a little play room. Thats it, done.

Reverse your saw blade. Mark your pieces on the very edge closest to you. Set the depth and your cut away.
