    I just had a 3x6" piece i needed to cut in half. Would have liked it to be dead square, but no way I was going to do it on a tablesaw without support on both sides of the blade. So it went on the...

    All the ribs and blocks ...

    I'm kinda wondering how Zip System R would work for this.

    Don't know how to deal with it if you need bigger than 4x8. And not a clue on the cost. If I'd known about...

    I make a quick division in my head, and make a mark from both edges. Cut between them.

    But if you're making multiple divisions, like rows of holes, the angled tape, or rule, is king.

    A 'Stinger'.

    Ours is 220, for 240 across any 2. Must be some other phasing for a 180 to do that. And, yeah, finding a convenient 120 slot in the box sometimes required being creative.

    Never...

    Urethane sounds better than silicone. Silicone having zero tear strength from what I recall.

    And, yeah, maybe Buna would leave 'skid marks' on the wood.

    There has to be a way to adjust that. Even normal wear ('stretching') of the chain is going to throw things out of whack eventually. But likely tiny, a couple thou' at worst? As far as the error of...

    I don't know why they'd be silicone in the 1st place. What's wrong with Buna? Maybe they'd walk off the wheels easier?

    Glad I read this. I've never had the least interest in using PU. All the articles I've read, with the wetting and foaming, were a complete turnoff. I've got a little goof-around project right now...

    Chain doubled over somewhere, or not fully seated on a sprocket?

    Paint color preys on our desire to have things that match. Just got a very lightly used dishwasher and microwave off CL for that very reason.

    And I'll 'plus' whatever on the sea ice comment :-)

    A scarf joint is a standard method of creating an angled headstock, using the fretboard as a reinforcing layer. But what you currently have is kind of backwards in relation to that.

    If the concave side is down, and it doesn't rock, the bevel cut will be planar and should mate without a gap. Holding a straightedge to the feather edge will show a crown. If one board is cupped, and...

    My gut feeling on this is that it's only true in terms of lateral displacement. But the wider the spacing the greater the angular error. So I modeled it up to see.

    It's true, the wider the runner...

    Yeah, I always have to correct myself with '120/240' these days. It was 'always' 110/220.

    3 Phase off the line in 'our' shop in Calif is 120/120/220. Any combination results in 240 or a bit more.

    Run that into a transformer and get 3 legs of 120, for 208 (Japanese machine). Or 3 220's...

    The fence angle scale on the Felder (700) is basically useless if you're pulling the fence 'back', because of the geometry. No way to read that accurately. Forward, you might need a test cut if you...
