    That could only be true if the measurements of all the shims were incorrect, but they are not. The “fours” measure correct. I can understand an in-proper reading with a dial caliper, but I trust my digital much more. Thank you for watching.Take Care.

    your caliper is off not the shims

    According to my digital calipers someone didn’t get the message. They record metric or American standard. Thanks for the info. I’m heading out to the shop now so I can review Widths in metric.

    The reason 3/4″ plywood is no longer 3/4″ is because it is actually 18mm plywood. 18mm is equal to 0.708″ – Welcoming America to the metric system (by stealth).

    damn America need to use the metric system!

    Love your videos and I have an idea regarding pushing down on the workpiece.

    The sled would need a fence on both sides for this to work. Cut a dado along the length of both fences and place a dowel into the dados. Blocks could be wedged between the dowel and the workpiece to hold it down against the sled. Cut the top of the blocks at a slight angle or use a shims to accomodate differencess in workpiece widths.

    Anyway, just a thought and not sure if it would be pratical or worth the effort.

    Keep in mind you will have to pay $4,000.00 to get a two axis machine.
