HL850 Rescue
« on: July 14, 2019, 08:03 PM »
I’ve been doing woodworking for over 40 years and still making bone head mistakes.

I was adding some ebony trim to the top of a side table. I’d already glued two pieces and was fitting the other two pieces when I found one strip was thin at one end.

When I had cut the trim parts (1/8” by 3/4”) from the mother board, I had not checked its width. Thus, the trim strip tapered.

I tried a number of ways to remove the trim strip without damaging the underlying structure. No luck until I pulled out the 850.

With about 5 passes, the trim strip was gone and the underlying structure untouched.

Secret weapon.  Nice.
