My suggestion would be to use a jigsaw, and get for it a hollow-ground blade
with zero tooth set - basically a Japanese pull saw in a jigsaw blade.
Or cut it by hand with a fine-tooth Japanese pull saw. You might get a
straighter cut that way than a jigsaw would give you - the jigsaw blade
might tend to wander a bit if the stock you're cutting is thick, unless you
take it very slow.

I need a bit of help making a final cut in a project I made for the wife.
If you view the photo from the posted link below, you'll see the project I'm
In the photo, on the left side of the board opposite the motor, is a sliding
block which holds a bearing and small shaft to complete a double end
connection for a bobbin. On that block, you'll notice a fine slit down the
center and a sex bolt on the side, to tighten the bearing into place. I can
only imagine the slit was made, or can be made with a bandsaw.
Unfortunately, I don't have a bandsaw, but I need to make that slit in order
to tighten down the bearing on my project. Obviously, a table saw, RAS, jig
saw, etc. will have a blade wider than needed thus, I'm asking for
suggestion how I can get that small slit without a bandsaw.
