i have a c-man RAS from the mid 60s that i use for crosscutting. now that i’ve got it set up, it’s dead on , ba!!s accurate every time.

it was a cast off from a neighbor. it needed $60 in parts and it was worth every penny. 45 degree jigs facilitate non-90 degree cuts and i don’t rip on it. i did rip on it a few times when it was on a mobile base, but i’m not comfortable with that operation.

here it is, in operation:

because of the downward movement of the blade, the workpiece is pressed onto the table, which is why i was able to perform the cut without holding onto the work piece. i don’t routinely do that.

-- there's a solution to every problem.......you just have to be willing to find it.
