Kitchen Cabinet Cutting Setup
« on: December 27, 2017, 07:11 PM »
After a long period of time, finally getting around to starting my kitchen cabinets.  To cut the panels, I used my MFT table, Kapex crown stops,  rails and Qwas dogs.  I didnt take alot of pictures but these give the idea. 
I use the dogs as end stops.  To set the rail distance, I laid a Starret ruler under the rail and butted up to a dog.  Then set the rail at my desired cut length.  Did this on both sides of the table.

Being too picky, I then put 2 dogs adjacent to each other, close the rail. Each  side.  Then used a mitutoyo depth gauge by bridging the depth gauge between the dogs and pushing the gauge against the rail  to final adjust.

I am using my Kapex crown stops to further support the wood and provide some stability.
Right now my cuts are within 0.1 to 0.2 mm across 38.5 inches.  I am using my TS55.
In the past I asked questions, thought I would share :-)
