When I am working with a new product, I often will use it in a final project. It is much more motivating to me to be working on a project that I am interested in than just practicing using a tool. Admittedly I will make mistakes along the way but I can usually fix them as I go along. In the case of the MIDI workstation I have made a shocking number of errors but so far I have managed to cover them up fairly well.
Most of my errors are because of the alignment pin in the Veritas 32 System.
No matter how hard you tighten it, it still moves. And with the system being the way it is, if you make one change, you have to check the entire system. I can’t tell you how tedious this can be. Since most of the measurements are repetitive I will be making some jigs to make the setup more automatic and consistent.
If I can fix this portion, I think I will enjoy using it more. As it is, I see the potential of using but it seems to be a very fussy endeavor so far.
While the jig is not attached it is meant to allow me to add 4.5″ sides. This failed (twice) and eventually I had to use biscuits.
