Well everyone I think I get the point of what I presented as
somewhat hard to visualize. I need to replace a tablesaw for
exactly what it does, outside of miter cutting and guide,
just to be able to cut perfectly straight and accurately. I thank
you all for trying to help, and taking the time to type in
response to someone none of you know, kind souls every-
where. Mr. Clarke, that saw and your hand work is very
nice! I also love aquaria but currently have nothing set up.
I used to have a 29 gallon African Cichlid tank.
What I did finally think-up is something like a wooden miter
box, but without any miter angle slots as saw guides, just
straight ones about every inch, only on the two long side
ends of a rectangular box. The box is only about 2" cutting
depth with four walls, and clamping screws with ferruled
handles going into the sides, made from Jorgensen screw-
spindles ordered as spare parts, with the barrel nuts in the
walls. I'll have to order the largest spindles because they have
opposing threads on either sides of the center, then get
them cut in half. These will hold wood in place with wood
shims. Inside dimensions should be 16" or 20" length
x 12" or 16" wide, and 2" deep, all as internal dimensions. I
will probably need to compensate for the width size for kerf
widths, though I don't know if I need to. I have a backsaw
coming from an ebay purchase which has a cutting length of
21", should do nicely in a 16" long box idea.
Any critiques or advise on this idea?
Thanks again all,
