Binding Cutting Aid

Cutting the back binding at the heel has always been difficult for me.  It’s tough to get it perfectly square and matched up with the other end.  I always had to dick around cutting it a little long and tediously shortening it with files and sanding sticks.  This jig uses an X-acto razor saw and has simplified the process considerably.  You have to make one for each binding size but that’s easy.
