Bevel cuts
« on: December 09, 2018, 08:32 PM »

If you do something that you did not intend to do, but decide that it was a good idea anyway, is it still considered to be a mistake?

Some ( maybe most ) of my best woodturnings and boxes have sprung from mistakes. Some have been retrieved from my shop waste bin and reworked into something previously unthought of. I think of mistakes as a spur to try something new. Some end up in the city dump and some as someones’s treasure.

As long as you tell no one, it's not a mistake, it was a design choice.   [smile]

Lots of those around.   Now have fun on your MFT! You got your first scratch so to speak.

you coped your miter fence so it fits better into corners.  You enhanced it.

Hush now... Festool will charge 350 for the upgraded miter fence if they find out.

On the bright side of it, you can now use the fence as an angle gauge to set your saw's angle if you need to repeat the same bevel cut....  ;D

As a Sawyer I always saw there are two types of Sawyer.... Those who have sawn into their mill and those who are gonna.... Those who say they never have never will are either lying or not trying, ie, pushing the limits and mincing trees into as much lumber as possible.

What’s the point of having tools is you don’t USE them?

Can’t tell you how many times I have almost cut into my MFT/3 like that.  To date I have been able to catch myself at the last minute.  I know it will happen at some point.  I did however recently have a router slip and ding the scale on my Woodpeckers MFS......
