I'm sort of getting the feeling that my joshing about the .007" of an inch variation in the thinkness of the veneer that I cut with the BS is being taken more serious than I had intended it to be. In my opinion that much variation is in thickness is quite exceptable considering the fact that the one ince wide blade does not make a real smooth cut and the roughtness of the cut probably contributes to most of the small error in the thinckness of the cut or the ability to make an accurate measurement of the actual thickness of the veneer. Does anybody think that the BS should really cut closr that what I am talking about in this thread? I can't cut a rip cut on my TS that is much closer than what than what I'm talking about with the re-saw cut on the BS, a couple thousands variation from one end to the other on a 30" rip is quite normal of me and I'd be surprised if anybody can really make a rip cut that is much closer than that.
Went out to work in the shop after posting the above post and tried another cut with the BS, this time the cut was better, it measured .0885" on both ends, I was more careful about holding the work piece close to the fence as the cut was made. By the way the cut was made from a workpiece that was only .250" think that I cut it from.
