Re: Box makers - frame rests, yes or no?
I used to use them but I don't any longer EXCEPT I have a few boxes that I made myself and the frames just barely sit on the rabbets. For those, I've placed frame rests in them which helped hold the frames better. The problem I had with using rests was that it was difficult to scrape them clean without tearing out a staple or nail. I found that not using them was cleaner (no critters getting under the rests) and easier to use without a significant amount of wear on the rabbets. That's just my experience.
