A jig is any of several classes of tools used for woodworking, metalworking or plastic modeling and other crafts.
The main purpose of a jig iscontrolling location, motion or both for a tool and/or work piece. Some jigs are referred to as templates or guides.
Many jigs provide the user with a simple method of duplicating parts and how they are manipulated.
I marvel at the minds of some modelers who come up with a jig for almost any purpose. They surehave made my modeling efforts easier over the past 20-30 years.
Many times I have found a jig designed for a particular purpose to be adaptable to otherfunctions completely unrelated.
Hopefully, this will become a repository for jigs particularly useful to modelers.
The object is to collect as many as possible in a format that includes a photograph or two, adescription/purpose and directions on how to build it.
