If you spend this much time tuning your saw you’ll get some really nice cuts.

The guy must be an engineer. Did you see that he has a dial indicator on his tenoning jig? Either that or OCD. No wait, that’s the same thing as being an engineer, never mind. lol

That guy deserves are real pat on the back. That’s some real patience, perseverance, and persistence. Well done.

Bookmark his ww home (or whatever it is) page, too.

It’s been open on my computer for weeks. It’s a treasure chest.

Heck, I had the same problem with my arbor flange, and I just stuck a piece of clear Scotch packaging tape (0.002” thick) on the low spot. Worked perfectly, and it’s still there 2 or 3 years later.

I want his box joint jig!!! And his slot mortiser, too!

I’ve been on his site many times and I always marvel at his ingenuity and resourcefulness. Have you checked out his table plans that are designed for disassembly?
