Paper tri-folder

Requested Project

This is mainly a wood shop project.  We have 1 that I'll try to bring to the next meeting.  It is a jig that helps a consumer tri-fold billing items to stuff into an envelope.  It is made of a plywood tray; a small piece of smooth-edged sheet metal; a small hinge and some wood trim.  Basically the plywood tray cradles an 8 1/2 X 11 piece of paper.  The piece of metal on the hinge swings into position over the middle of the paper.  The consumer then folds the top of the paper down and the bottom of the paper up.  It works great, but we need another one.  Our target date is the first part of November.  Thanks for considering the project.  If you have any questions, let me know.
