Even if your tablesaw tenoning jig has washers on its miter bar (mine doesn’t), intended to keep it from tipping during operation, it might still be a little wobbly. Adding a simple outrigger to the jig makes it more stable and accurate. Mine has a little shoulder on the back side, so I can attach it with just one bolt through the clamp arm. It also has a notch at the front so it doesn’t limit the clamp arm’s range of adjustment.
