Default Online Assymetric Cove Templates

Awhile a go, I posted a few questions about calculating Asymmetric Coves. Review is a Symmetric Cove cut on a table saw is when you have a fence at an angle to the blade and pass your work piece over it (stepping the depth of cut in increments), resulting in a cove cut that is the same on both sides. An asymmetric cove is when you have a fence at an angle and bevel the blade, then pass your work over it (again the depth of cut in increments), resulting in a cove than varies in curve from side to side.

At that time, I didn't find an online calculator, so I cut out samples to try to match various angles and bevels. This method was a pain.

Last night I found an online calculator, that prints out templates and has easy instruction on how to use:

Be aware that the template page uses "Flash." If you load the page and the fields are blank, make sure you have flash loaded or just try using a different browser. It doesn't seem to like the 64bit Linux version of Google Chrome's 64bit flash. It likes Firefox. Don't know about others.

Follow the instructions on that page for how to generate templates. Follow the link from there for instructions on how to use the templates.

COOL! Thanks Mike for posting that! That (as you know) may come-in handy on "our project" - I will pass-it-on to our machinist, Terry Pulliam. I am unaware if he already has such a thing - but it never hurts to "reinforce".


Tweak everything!
