The idea came from FWW
I got a chance to play around with getting the angles setup for the adjustment wedges tonight. I made a fixture to cut the angle in some scrap. I didn’t pay real close attention to detail on the fixture. I figure it’s a one of a kind item and probably will hit the compost pile in the spring.
I don’t particularly like the bungee cord idea so I’m going to use a 1/4-20 bolt to keep the adjuster in place. Here’s the concept:
I’ll drill a hole through the center of the adjuster and counter bore a hole deep enough to allow for adjustment up and down. Since the entire fixture / jig is basically hollow, the bolt will just float to keep the adjuster in place.
Here’s the test piece in the fixture. You have to keep your wits about you when doing something like this because the piece isn’t backed up by anything. If your not careful, disaster could strike before you know what hit you!
I’m not sure when I’m going to get this fixture completed. I may put it on the back burner for a few days (read as I plan on just picking away at this project over the next few days) as I need to work on my dust collection and get some permanent piping installed.
If you have any experience with this fixture, I’d love to hear how to made yours, is it really worth the effort, ...
Thanks for reading.
