Is this safe?
I had to cut out the center of a cabinet door, for a plexiglass insert, and the jig saw didn't get the cuts straight enough.
So I stuck a 1/4" staight bit in the table. The fence had to be removed, and the door was too big for a pin or any type of guard.
I also had to rabbet in the back side with no fence or pin, but at least on that I had the pilot bearing. Still no guard though.
If unsafe, what would be an alternative?
I thought possibly of using a top bearing flush trim bit with a straight edge board as the guide?? But there was so much material betweent the straight bit and my fingers I couldn't see why not to do it that way.
Again, still no guard.
