Not rocket science...rarely is.


Can you show us a video where a saw safely cuts a short and narrow piece of wood in half?

Do you want me to go outside and film myself cutting a short and narrow piece of wood in half with a hand saw?

Yes, go outside and cut a 1/2" wide by 2" long piece of wood using a POWER saw.

If you want a hand tool thread, I suggest that you start one.

I could do that using a jig saw with ease. What's your point?

Well Stu...if you want to play with itty bitty pieces of wood...that's your call...idiocy like that might be why your friend is missing digits?

If I want a piece 1/2" x 2" long...I'm much more likely to rip a piece 1/2" x 12+" long using the method I linked to and then either use a miter sled with the table saw to cut to length...or use a miter saw.

Heck...I betcha a radial arm saw could cut it to length too. :lol:

But what do I know.. I still have all my fingers...must be doing something wrong eh? :roll:

If it is your style to call a fellow member of the forum an idiot, you will have to live with it.


I used the tiny piece of wood as an example of how a very dangerous power saw procedure could be accomplished with complete safely on my saw.

So...your friend with the missing digits is you now?

I showed how proper technique can cut the piece in complete safety on factory equipment. Proper technique over re-invention.

Calling my friend an idiot is not acceptable.

When did you show a power saw cutting a 1/2" x 2" x 3/8" thick piece of plywood in half lengthwise?

Table Saw Challenge - Double Bevel

Unread postAuthor: boyntonstu » Fri Mar 18, 2011 6:32 pm

Table Saw Challenge - Double Bevel

Take a 3" x12" x 1/2" piece of stock.

Bevel a 45* angle half way down edge of the stock at this angle \

and continue the bevel the rest of the way at this angle /.

You may not turn the stock upside down or lift it from its flat, on the table position.

Can you do it on your table saw?

You shouldn't be to quick to point to your "elevator" as an engineering success. It violates building/safety and fire codes in every county within the United States. Anyone with access to an auto wrecking yard could do the same.

Instead of a hobby of making things cheap, maybe you could change to making things of quality. Not everything you make is an "Invention".

so you want it pointy like afence post? You could use a v shaped jig behind the blade probably. But there are better ways to do it, or just flip it over lol.

It's about lateral thinking, not efficiency.

Regarding the challenge, I don't own a table saw, nor can I answer the question. I look forward to the solution though.
