Modification Of Jerry's Unpopular New Idea
O.K. for the fifth time I am going to attempt to start this new thread, in the past, each time that I have almost completed it every thing has just gone away.
So here we go again. I must assume that the readed has read the first thread that I am referring to that is being modified.
What if you simple run the sub fence through the blade without attempting to cross cut a work piece. After this is done the distance from the cut in the sub fence and the right end of the sub fence is the distance or the length that you want to cross cut the narrow work piece in question.
After the cut in the sub fence is done, simply push the fence back to the right and out of the way. Now, if you simple lay the workpiec that you want to cut against the sub fence so that the right end of the workpiece matchs the end of the sub fence you can make the cut letting the sub fence be what is used to determine the length of the part that you are trying to cut off. Now there is no way for the piece to be trapped between the blade and the fence since the fence has been moved out of the way. To me the advantage is that I can still use the scale on the system to set the length of the cut off piece without having to compensate for a sub fence attached to the TS fence or a block, that is set between the fence and the end of the workpiece that the piece is being cut from. If this is not clear, let me know and I will try to clearify it, and if you do understand, tell me what you think.
