a small addendum to Bob Sorenson's table saw tutorial for cutting scale lumber

Recommended Posts

I liked the tutorial very much.  The technical advice is pertinent for cutting any dimensions of wood.


Here's one little tip that you might like, that you can use with a table saw or any other machine:  When cutting very small pieces, there is a tendency for the pieces to jam and become marred, or they may fly away to places unknown.  To avoid that, you might place a bit of screen (1/4" hardware cloth or flyscreen) over the end of a vacuum hose, and then place the hose near to the blade (with a mechanical support as prudence suggests).  When the tiny piece is separated from the stock, the vac will capture it against the screen.
