Are you kidding me. Your worried about moving your fence twenty thousands of an inch? Your working with wood You do know that wood will contract/expand more than that from room temp. change.

Thanks for the laugh Bogeyguy lol. Just a few points here…

1) No I am not kidding you. But thanks for the conversation! :)
2) To make sleds for the table saw I, like sooooooo many other woodworks, shoot for my runners to be about 2 thousands of an inch less than the width of the miter slot.
3) Yes wood will expand and contract but if you use a quartersawn piece of oak, maple, walnut, or any other hardwood and orient the grain for expansion vertically than you will never have any major problems.
4) “You do know that wood will contract/expand more than that from room temp. change.” Humidity swells wood, not temperature.
5) I noticed you said this in response to a honing jig project “I have been a cabinet maker since 1972 when I completed my apprenticeship and never have I had the need for a honing guide”. You posted your reply here stating twenty thousands of an inch isnt anything to worry about. And then you posted asking for advice when you sanded through a thin veneer on a cabinet refinish. A bit ironic actually :)

Thanks for your comments and have a great day!

JSB, I didn’t sand thru the veneer, it was another poster. I was just commenting. And temp. will expand or contract wood, not as much as humidity but none the less it does.
