THE JIG
The process I use is as follows
I install 2 square end blocks as in pic 1
A spacer block rests against the blocks and is aligned perfectly square and perpendicular
The post is moved against the spacer block and clamped to the fence this will only let the highpoint of the postend touch the spacer block.
The spacer block is removed and the first cut is made, in this case just over halfway thru the post.
The saw is shutt off and once stopped the sled is pulled back.
The spacer block is reinstalled and the post roteted a half turn and again moved against the spacer block a clamped to the fence.
The spacer block is removed and the second cut is made.
The offcut is removed after the saw has come to a standstill.
For the other end to be trimmed I flip the post and mark the finished lenght and align the mark with the saw blade using the spacer block as a guide.
The first cut is made with the spacer block put aside.
I shut off the saw and once the blade has stopped i pull back the sled.
I rotate the post and align the cut with the blade using the spacer block ang reclamp the post.
The spacer block is put aside and the second cut is made ,again shutting off the saw and the blade having come to a stop I remove the offcut and the post is cut to lenght and is ready for the router lathe.
