    Id be curious to see if your chisel holders also gap between the mating surfaces. I assume this is why the originals cracked. Your mention of that situation is actually what caused me to dig in...

    Dialing in the chisel holder was surprisingly difficult. I did not expect perfect alignment but I was surprised at the reasons why it was out.

    Entirely agree, a tape measure is something I use for rough work only. I don’t find a tape measure to be useful for measuring work pieces but they are repeatable so decent for corner to corner...

    Interesting, sounds like you’re getting a repeatable result. Not much you can do to repair the issue, but in any case I think .003” is very good over the length of the bars.

    I do the same as Mel, for the same reason. It helps to straighten the board if you work with the bowed side down.

    I like those fold down guards, they’re a smart and practical design. I used one on a Martin and found it’s a great guard in my opinion. Nice to have to walk around the guard.
