Oh, this little sacrificial fence has some problems and creating it was a learning experience…the featherboards are too long…the bottom of the fence looks like a pincushion there are so many holes…first the wrong hardware…then too deep holes…etc. But it works…and the next one will be better. The learning curve on South Creekview Road is often steep and long. I created this to cut some oak posts to size…and I thought I needed some featherboards…and probably will when I get around to cutting the oak. That will happen in a few days. Maybe tomorrow. I also got to use the router side of this tablesaw combo. It works fine. Yes, most of my projects to date are shop tools…additions to my shop equipment to make things easier and safer. I just can’t buy things anymore and have to make the stuff myself now. I did use a different way tomake the featherboards found here on Lumberjocks…it worked great…and I thought it was better than Norm’s video of his making featherboards. Quicker and more logical. And there was a learning curve with that as well. So it goes. Many things ahead…many projects…soon I’ll have the all the jigs and helps I need to actually make something worthwhile to show everybody. Yeah, I’d love to have the $3,000 dollar tablesaw with extensions…however, it hasn’t happened yet…so I’m working with what I have to create what I can with accuracy others can tolerate. And now maybe I also process those maple 2” maple flitches I have to make the top of a bench? It’s a thought.
