The vertical and horizontal slots are at 1.5" so you just slide the work piece so the slot edge is on the previous bartack and hit it again?

The tacks are 24mm or below 1inch. Yes you tack the strap on the vertical line and then flip it and tack it horizontal. It is pretty fast jig to attach.
I have the files for it if anyone want to play around with their own jigs. you perhaps need to make small afjustment but you dont have to start from scratch.

Maybe add a small cutout notch to help with aligning the tab when bartacking along the length of the tab.

I made around 10 shapes before i settle on this shape. The problem is that the first tack you need to hold the laminate and plastic correctly and you need some room to work so you just push the laminate into the acrylic and it works pretty fast.
Perhaps when I will buy a pattern machine i will get a custom clamp made because I would like an x-box stich with at tack on top for my molle straps. but this is works fine for now.
