Jigs for scale (or just tiny) projects

I work in a number of mediums from metal and wood to clay and paints but wh
at ever I am doing it is always SMALL. In 1:12 scale to be precise. I am
also a stickler for accuracy and detail to achieve realism. To this end I
am looking for ANY jigs or holders etc that would help me with making (and
reproducing) small items. I can totally take a jig from woodworking and ad
apt it to the items I make in metal so that's not an issue...no need to poi
nt to wood magazine jigs as I have collected a variety of those types alrea
dy.
In particular I am trying to modify all my tools whether full size or mini,
to adapt to my Byrnes Miniaturists Table saw mitre table attachment, for a
ccuracy. right now I'm trying to figure out how to attach it to my delta d
isc and mini band sander (on the disc side) effectively...Ive removed the d
isc housing since I made a set of removable discs in a variety of grits so
I can quickly swap them out rather than peel off paper that is only partial
ly used up! If anyone is interested in those mods to use for your full siz
ed items or as a sharpening system..I'm willing to share!
Thanks for any replies and for the new add to this group.
sincerely,
Jackie

Yesterday I was at a tag sale that had a bunch of tools. And I found a V c lamp. It is a small vacuum clamp that uses compressed air and a venturi to hold things. It is about 8 inches by 8 inches, but can be used to clamp sm aller things.
