Does the length of the notch on the side rails of frames matter? On the plans I am using it saws 3 1/2" Deep, 2 5/8" Medium and 2 1/8" Shallow. This is the portion that is not notched. Reason this is and issues I am using 7 1/4 frames. I already cut mine to 4 1/4" with the notch being 3". Will this work or do i need to cut the notch longer?

If this does not make seance I will post some pictures.

Thank you,
Jonathan

You're talking about the tapered section where the lower portion is narrower than the upper part, I assume. As long as the wide upper part has enough meat to it to keep the frame wedged in vertically, the length is not critical.

Yes you are correct in deciphering my gibberish. That is great news, being as I have 100 frames glued and assembled. That would be an awkward fix. Thank you!
