I use 10" flat bastard files (more coarse than mill bastard) for
knocking corners off things.
It is a trick I picked up from an old timer who did a lot of refacing work.
He would break the sharp edge of a laminate with a file.
So now I have a dilemma:
The new jig is so accurate in terms of dimensions and spacing that the
joints are VERY tight and difficult to assemble. The tolerances are so
close that there is little, if any, room for glue and they tend to splinter
or chip out if I tap too hard on them.
I either have to work all the pins over with an abrasive every time I make a
drawer (time consuming), or make the sockets just a hair wider than the pins
while assuring that the pins are centered in the openings.
Which is the best approach? Wouldn't the second approach put me back in the
realm of accumulated error?
