Your equipment will, sooner or later come out of square, and your projects will suffer from it, so, here are some good tips on this link I’d like to share with ya’ll. I know that as a “rookie”, or newbie woodworker, things like these will definitely help you out in the shop. Maybe some have already received this in your email. http://www.startwoodworking.com/post/use-test-cuts-accurate-machine-setups?utm_source=email&utm_medium=eletter&utm_term=machinery-set-up&utm_content=20120216-no-mess-glue-ups&utm_campaign=start-woodworking-eletter

Great Tips for those who are new to wood working and some who are not so new.

Have you ever come up against a problem when making a project that vexes you no end and you just can’t see a solution to the problem?
Later you are sitting around and the answer comes to you and it’s so simple because you’ve dealt with it before!

Hey Roger, great post! It’s never a bad thing to be reminded of things we should be doing to keep our machines up to par. For those of us that didn’t know these tricks of the trade, now we do. Thank you Roger.

Garagewoodworks is right on.

While these methods can tell you that your cuts are off, they lead to chasing the wind trying to get the adjustments just right.
