No-slip grip

No-slip grip

Upgrade a low-priced dovetail jig inexpensively with two strips of adhesive-backed, 100-grit or 120-grit abrasive. Remove the hold-down bars and wipe away any dust or contaminants. Trim the sandpaper to width and press the strips firmly against the hold-down bars. Then remount them on the jig. The result: better holding power for just pennies.
