I do a lot of really little boxes. Up till now I have handcut with mitre box (not chop saw) being desirous to retain my fingers. Got the idea to make a sled mitre jig for my bandsaw as I felt that would be safer than my tablesaw. My problem is that I cannot get it fine tuned enough to suit me. The ends of the joints are always open no matter how I nudge the fence.
I am starting to wonder if the problem is not the fence but blade flex. I am noticing that about every cut is ever so slightly concave. Not sure if you can tell that from the second pix. At any rate, I wonder if anyone has suggestions as to why I am getting the slightly coved shape on the miter?
Thanks for any and all suggestions.
