The Lego Jig

Legos are pretty awesome, and they are even more awesome when you can use them to make your jobs go faster! From a young age I was in love with Legos. We had a Rubbermaid tote full of them. Thousands and thousands of pieces that were always being built into something different everyday.

One of main pieces that I would always use was a large base plate. It was the foundation for everything. If you still have one of the build plates for Legos and a bunch of Lego pieces, you can use that to make a jig to make your jobs go faster. I used them for a customer that ordered a bunch of wine bottle openers. I set the origin of my laser and once I had everything lined up and good to go, I built a frame around the wine bottle opener with the Legos. This made it so when one piece was finished I could pull it off the bed and put the next piece in the frame that I had built with the Legos. This saves a lot of time since you do not have to check each one to make sure it is lined up.
