Mr, Neil shows how to cut thin strips the easy way.

Not a new way but another way. ( Circa 2005)

Enjoy

I like his videos….down to earth, to the point, full of info and obviously a skilled woodworker. A pretty good teacher too. Thanks Bob.

Thanks Bob

Good presentation and demonstration of the method. It was educational and a good way to rip thin strips safely.

I really don’t see the problem of setting the fence at 1/8” and ripping these strips. With a good push stick, a slick table surface and a zero clearance throat plate its safe and simple. Plus you don’t have to clamp these devices on and move the fence over for every cut. Just my opinion.

Good point Miles.
If it works for you by all means use the method.
This is just a variation of the method that gives a part timer a bit more control over the main block and let the narrow strip peallways from the stock.

Now that i think about it. Maybe those using a splitter behind the blade would find my way a little more prone to snagging up?

It’s nice to have a few different ways of doing things. I like to have a nice round number…hmmm…10. Yup, 10 sounds good.

I thought that technique looked familar to a Tip on my website…
I checked it out… walla, I think this was one of the first tips added to me Page… back in 2004.
Uses basically the same principle…

Hey joe:
It real hard to find anything in the woodworking basics that hsn’t been discussed or shown before.

But, the fact of the matter is we always have new crop of woodies just taking up the hobby and these things help them grow quickly into competent hobbiests.
I’m always most pleased with any posting I make that helps somebody else enjoy the hobby a bit more.
In this case the credit goes to Mr. Neil. Thanks Charles.

Cheers

Bob
