Jigs (Vorrichtungen, Werkstatthilfen) are helpers for difficult standard operations, such as drilling angled holes, making specific cuts, or accurately repeating something.
simple fixture for horizontal drilling - usable, but most proper jigs take a bit more effort
They can usually be self-made!
Good to know for adjustable jigs: M6 screws advance exactly 1 mm per turn.
Here are some ideas for commonly needed jigs if you feel inclined to make one:
- bench hook
- shooting board
- table saw sleds
- drill press table
- star knob jig - perhaps one for M6 and one for M8 screws/T-nuts?
- V-block for drilling into round or angled pieces
- should have a long "V" groove and a second "V" on the side, as shown here
