So unless you came to woodworking as something to do later in life chances are that most likely you’ve used some sort of portable table saw in the past.
If thats the case then chances are you’ve done all you can do to properly set your fence, but then you cut into the board and realize that as you clamped the fence it came out of parallel from the blade slightly. You push the board through and as you get to the end of the cut you can see that your forcing the blade sideways a little and it takes a little more of the last inch of the piece..
Well right now getting a new saw isn’t an option and it won’t be for some time. And even more of a not option is to spend the extra time to make sure its parallel every time. I could certainly aim to be more precise, but its just not going to happen every cut.
So here was my thought was to make some sort of sacrificial style fence on the backside of the fence which I can then maybe notch a little so that I can attach some plastic framing squares to the underside of. Not sure whether or not this makes sense to you all, but if not maybe I can draw on sketchup tonight what I’m thinking about. I literally just came up with this idea this morning when I was doing where I always do my best thinking.
Anyone else ever do something like this or seen something like this. Figure before I start building it, I’d ask around on here since projects always turn better after they’ve been run through the LJ ringer.
I have the PCB220TS= if that matters at all.
