    Default New Essential Jig

    I’ve had this 12mm plastic sheet kicking around for a couple of years looking for a use...finally used it on a jig for slicing home baked bread.
    All my own design . Each slice made to measure for the toaster.

    If you can believe that moving images and sound, can fly through empty space across the universe and be seen and heard on a box in your living room ?.. then you can believe in anything.

    That's well thought out. I respect a man who uses his loaf.

    Sets me thinking and in a way it’s new product line, if you can just find the market. Weird as it may seem some folk can’t manage to saw a loaf straight (square) never mind get even thickness slices.

    The greatest invention since sliced bread.

    That’s nice work Ken. I’ll continue to slice my home baked French bread on the bandsaw though.

    I've been using a chain saw for the last 6 months. Lost a lot of weight.

    So you made that without kneading any dough!

    I think it could be improved with the addition of a crumb extraction port.

    crumb extraction port
    Definitely
    Also, remove plastic handle carefully (put aside for a possible future project), and automate by connecting serrated blade to windshield wiper motor.

    Ken-I use a commercially made slicing jig, but the same idea as yours. A few years ago I found an electric double blade carving knife, something I would never buy usually, at the recycle store for $1. Unbelievably good for slicing bread. Will slice the toughest loaf or the most fragile perfectly.
