I am trying to make a V Block to cut some dowel rod. I want to make some handles for drawers I made several years ago in my shop/garage. These drawers are under my work bench. I could go and buy some handles, but what fun is that. I still can’t figure how to draw a line down the length of the piece of dowel rod for the handle so I can set the legs of the handle so they are straight/in line but that is a problem for another day.
I have found a site on the net that tells/shows how to set the table saw at 45 degrees and run the piece of wood through one way turn it around and run it through again. Problem is that my saw blade only tilts in one direction and I end up with a “A” instead of a “V”. Looking at the saw blade it angles to the left.
This seems simple enough but it has me stumped. Needles to say I am new at wood working and I am stumbling along.
Any help or ideas will be greatly appreciated.
