Thanks Larry and Jim It looks like I will be cutting inboard. I appreciate the help from all you guys with so much experience.

I saw a neat FWW tip for a shopmade fingerboard which is a sort of vertical featherboard but with adjustable ‘fingers’ with feather cuts on the ends of each one. These are mounted horizontally on a vertical board at a an angle to the fence. The four ‘fingers’ slide horiz. to adjust the pressure after each cut to hold the workpiece firmly against the fence. The idea is that the operator can then concentrate on just feeding the workpiece smoothly into the blade at a steady rate without having to press against it at the same time (I need all the help I can get).

I haven’t got the BS up and running yet because I’m making some small modifcations to my shop so I don’t have to suck in my stomach to walk around it. I’m hoping to to give it a try sometime tomorrow. I feel like a little kid with a new toy! I’ll do a little blog later just to show it off.
