This is the first time my target was in the thousandths of an inch range…
Yea… I missed that mark by 600% using the 5 cut method, feeler gauges and couldn’t get under 7 thousandths of an inch over a 24” cut.
According to Marc Spagnuolo and Mr. William Ng this is still unacceptable or at least below the “good nuff” standard.
If you notice the second and last pictures in this post, one is an illustration of me running out of hole space on the right side of my fence and the other is a picture of the large pile of pick-up strips created by cutting two boards down to nothing chasing the improbable >5 thousandths.
Needless to say, any advice on achieving the gold standard would be greatly appreciated.
The light at the end of the tunnel is that the sled is accurate enough to cut 45’s in 1 inch molding I made for a picture frame window for my router cabinet with marginal accuracy, where the glue squeeze out fills the ~1/64” gaps.
Method will be partially at fault here as in all cases.
Either way, I am better off having attempted that level of accuracy and closer to it than I was last week.
Finally, I would like to thank Marc and William for their sage instructional videos.
