Ok. I am trying to wrap my head around the accumulated error
associated with the 5-cut method. I read somewhere that the
accumulated error increases by a factor of 5 or was it 4? Anyway, I
think both are wrong. I drew up a mock 5-cut in CAD and used an angle
error of 5 degrees. The box is 4" by 4".
Cut two: Rotate clockwise and cut. Red line is now against the
fence. The distance at the top goes from 0.35 to 0.6440 - Not double,
Cut three: Again rotate clockwise and put the green line against the
Cut four: Rotate and put the orange line against the fence.
Cut five: Rotate and put the yellow line against the fence.
We went from the original 0.35" to the accumulated 1.0". That's an
increase of 2.86".
Not four or five. Am I missing something?
