    1) Yep, just get to building it. Dont stress about whether it will come out 'perfect', because over time what is perfect for you is likely to drift a...

    I have the incra system. And one of the earlier Leigh jigs. And a woodrat (with DRO).

    Honestly I just cut them by hand these days. Sometimes I will run the tails on the wood rat.
