    $350 usd for a wooden "frame" jig? Just no.

    Spend half that on 1018 cold rolled steel and copy the Blacksheep style jig.

    At least you'll have some steel that can be salvaged for something else instead of some half burn plywood if you never build another frame after the first one.

    I agree with Shirk.

    A jig provides speed, not accuracy and i think that jig won't be very speedy or accurate.

    Is there by chance a write up on the black sheep frame jig? A quick google search doesnít yield much.

    That jiggernaut thing is effectively daylight robbery! Iíve made my own jig, Iíll upload some pictures when I get near my computer to give you some more ideas, it probably cost me £150. Itís quite different in approach to the blacksheep style. However it did require a bit of (very basic) work on a milling machine. What tools have you got access to?

    Thanks for the inputs, would be great to share some pictures, and part list if you can. I have lots of tools and few friends with a milling machine. just need some ideas and instructions and will make happen.

    The cool thing about the 1018 cold rolled steel jig is that it needs almost zero mill work. Hack saw and a hand drill will get you the main structure. Order your steel cut to the lengths you need and you can cut out the hacksaw. A drill press would make the holes easier.

    I don't know of a write up or video on it. Maybe if I can find the time in a few weeks I can do a write up on it and how I did mine.

    I've posted some pics of my jig in a new thread, didn't want to hijack.
