Re: Mothers Day Planters

1/3 total width.

shoulder 1/3, tenon 1/3, shoulder 1/3.

To 'guarantee' alignment ALWAYS reference a common edge.

Re: Mothers Day Planters

I am curious why you made the tenons so large? That is what size router bit you had for the mortises??

Re: Its only money ????

A 2x4 is only 2"x4" when still in a log.

Subtract saw kerf, planing waste and shrinkage and it comes out 3/8" smaller. Then a while back something caused them to shrink another 1/8".

I would think using band saws today would cause them to be bigger????

Re: Its only money ????

Ohh yes. Limit supply and demand/prices will rise.

Are timber prices also escalating? Surplus says no.

Sounds like gouging.

After all those folks call a 1 1/2" x 3 1/2" stick a 2 by 4!

Used long enough(by somebody) to require replacing the power switch.

Salvageable!

Re: old saw blades

Subject to verification, but my recollection is that the MVII was a 10" at the get go. A feature was the 10" sanding disk used 'in the table'. Not sure that the blade guard was compatible(never seed one myself).

The "2nd" blade slot on a MVII table is longer than the M5.'

My blow up very much looks like a "B". Oh do we ever need pix from further away.
