how do you set up your fence to be perfectly in line with the Bearing of the bit?
So this seems like an obvious answer, but I keep seeing an issue with the cope cut on door rails that lead me to believe I am doing it wrong.
My problem is that I get a little divet, on ever rail at the beginning of the cut, every time! It looks as if when I feed the rail into the bit, it leaves the fence a little deeper than the bearing is set.
If this only happened sometimes I would pass it off as sloppy workmanship, but it happens every time.
When setting my fence, I'll grab a metal straight edge, hold it dead flat to the bearing and bring the fence to it. Once I lock down the fence i usually run the ruler across the fence into the bearing to double check.
Anyone else ever have this happen?
