  4. Re: Which stacked dado for cutting box joints in cedar?

  5. Re: Which stacked dado for cutting box joints in cedar?

    You can make your box joint sled so that you cannot get your fingers in the saw blade. Even if you fall asleep, and fall on the sled, or the saw table, you still can't get your fingers (or...

    mike171...Just add a board in front of your current backer board and screw it to your current backer board. Then just be careful to never raise the blade more than 3/4 and the zero clearance will...
  10. Re: Which stacked dado for cutting box joints in cedar?

    Good advice Minz....

    I normally do two at a time. Since front and rear are the same I clamp them together and make the box joints. The sides are the same so I clamp them together and cut them.

  12. Re: Which stacked dado for cutting box joints in cedar?

    Poll: Re: Do you Build or Buy your Hive Bodies?

    Not totally true.

    Acebird, I think you would agree that the outside dimension of a box, also affects the flow of water down the stack. (rainfall). Right??? Water standing in the area where the...

    With all due respect, I respectfully say, once again, you are just dead WRONG. I don't have a clue as to how many pieces of bee equipment you have made in your lifetime, but, I will put my boxes...
  18. Re: What would you pay for equipment assembly?

    In any business, do a Time and Motion Study each time you have a new operation to be done.

    Poll: Re: Do you Build or Buy your Hive Bodies?
