Some time ago saw a post about a jig to cut bindings (or purflings) with no waste, by Dave Stewart. Original post here in tutorials http://www.luthiersforum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10117&t=19132 but some people here may not have seen it.
Anyway, I wanted to cut down purfling for a build from 2.7 to ~1.9mm
I've tried before with a fine bandsaw blade and zero clearance plate with mediocre results
So here's my quick and dirty version, works perfectly.
The maple spacer behind the rosewood securing the blade holds the purfling flat, and the rosewood strip with one screw holds the purfing against the back post like a featherboard.
Shallow cut to start, flip the purfling over end to end keeping the cuts aligned on each side, cut again, tap the blade down, repeat a couple of times and you're there.
Thanks Dave!

I'm cogitating how a person could do the Tim Taylor version by adding an oscillating tool to it (More Power!).
