Thank you deej / David, the tool is great and the site seems great and I didn't know about it. Will order one of those to see how things are going, 1.5 mm would do ...cheers!

@clinton Thanks man, it takes a while to set it up but once you have, the bearings keep the saw blade straight consistently and prevent any wearing. The bearings also act as a depth stop for the height. If you want more detail, I can give you a list of what you need and a cutting list for the wood.

@russ I’ve thought about this before, I noticed them a while back. It’s possible, it’s just a case of making the different radii pieces accurately. It’s definitely worth a shot isn’t it?

It is worth giving it a go John. Judging by your other work, I think that your more than capable of creating something that will work.

Cheers,

Russ. ✌️??
