To make pin cuts with this jig, just squeeze the angle guide to the top of the sled at the desired angle for the taper. This set makes it easy for repeatable cuts and the t-groove's stance keeps the fingers safely away from the blade.
I use it as a joining slide, just remove the angular guide and use the tail bar clamps to clamp the wood into the desired position.
If you use a large velocity square to mark a 45 degree angle from the edge, you can use this mark to make a 45 degree incision while keeping your piece securely in the sled with the clamps.
