You ain’t ever gonna keep me down. Lyric spotters please feel free to comment.
I left you, last night, as I was hacking at the pattern board with a chisel. No, I’m not mad. I’ve done all the tests.
It worked. I repaired the pattern.
I re-placed the mask and all looks good.
Re-taped the pattern
I scored a knife line into the pattern,along the outside edge of the outer tape. In combination with a strip of Polycarbonate, which has a line scored on it at 20mm in from one edge, I lined up the two lines taping down the poly’ with double sided tape. Set the table saw fence to 20mm from the far side of the blade. Blade height to just under the pattern thickness and started to cut the pattern edges.
I generally cut off two adjacent edges. Check the cuts for square. Adjust if/as necessary and set the fence on the table saw to cut the full board width on the other two sides from these two reference sides.
Then I cut the mitres on the router table. Glued and taped it all up.
Now the wait for the glue to dry to see if it all meets up properly.
Be seeing you.
