Curved rails for doing a fender style truss rod route.
Not really a jig but I use my radial arm saw thickness sander for a bunch of stuff.
Bill Scheltema style neck shaping jig.
I press the frets in from the side with half of a sanding block with a bolt mounted in it.
The underside of the block has a groove for the top of the fret and the side of the bolt is filed flat to push on the end of the fret.
I think I stole the idea to use the sanding block from Bill as well.
I worked with a similar "jig" the last time. The two MDF walls are separate though and just get clamped to the square neckblank sides. Than I used the router to take off the material leaving a nice even surface with minimal sanding afterwards.Here's a jig I made to simplify (for me anyway ) doing scarf joints -
