    Thread Starter: Michael Colip

    Hi All, trying to understand where I went wrong so that it doesn't happen again. I have a Jessem RT, lift and fence system with a 3 1/2 HP motor. I was using a 3/8" sharp straight bit to do a .7" x 3/8" dado on 1x2 Maple stock (3/4x1 3/4). The dado is on the 1 3/4 side, about 1/4" from the...

    Want to be an author at Sawmill Creek?

    Now you have a new area to publish articles!

    If you want to publish an article, you can join our authors group, which gives you access to a forum which is open only to would-be authors at SawmillCreek. This is a staging area for new articles, where you can post a new article, and we'll review for publication. Once you're ready to publish it, we'll promote it on the front page of SawmillCreek!

    The process is simple:

    1. Join the Authors group by visiting this page.
    2. Once you have access, visit the Authors forum.
    3. Start your article by creating a new thread in that forum.


    If your article is too long for a single post, don't fret ! Spread your article over multiple posts, and we'll merge them together into a single post when the article is ready to be published.

    Try posting pictures inline for visual interest.

    Choose a catchy, yet descriptive title!
