Made a very nice box joint jig with micro-adjustment feature. Very nice.
Using this on a router table with a PC895 router and 1/2" straight cut bit.
Taking about 1/8" - 1/4" off with each pass. Stock is 1/2" oak plywood for
drawer sides and backs.
Problem - Even with a backer board, I am getting a lot of tearout on almost
every cut. Is it the stock, the bit, the router speed, what? The bit is
almost brand new, speed is roughly16K rpm.
These drawers are for the router table itself, so they do not have to be
perfect. But shop equipment projects are my "live and learn" pieces before I
try something real for the house.
Thanks for all input!
