The cease prevents you from creating a reduce that’s too lengthy. take into accout of the scale of the reduce and of the quantity of fabric you are going to get rid of in a move. You don’t unavoidably are looking to hog out a ⅜”-deep reduce in one go, specially while you are utilizing a 1¼”- to 1½”-diameter bit. you most likely understand there are how one can average the chew: lessen the intensity of the lower or the width of the minimize. right here, the main expeditious strategy is the latter. shape the total minimize in small steps. the 1st cross might be approximately ⅛” broad, produced through protecting the workpiece good away from the cease, so basically ⅛” of the workpiece extends over the bit. Make cross after cross, moving the workpiece nearer and in the direction of the cease. One final move with the workpiece useless opposed to the cease and your lap is whole. to gather a lapping platform, trap a workpiece among the fences and align the first platform on them. the sting of the platform needs to be sq. to the paintings. you could construct the straightforward model of this jig for cross-laps as proven within the picture or upload a piece cease as proven within the representation to additionally lower end-laps. This procedure works good for end-laps, yet no longer for laps halfway among the ends of the workpiece. For a pass- or a T-lap, the router desk accent to exploit is the dadoing sled proven in our April 2003 factor (# 133). you should utilize a cease with this sled to maintain the paintings from relocating because the bit cuts it, and that is helping you set the minimize in addition. Set the cease to place the ultimate minimize, and use a spacer among the cease and the paintings to put the 1st reduce. LAPPING PLATFORM LAPPING SLED part, ADJUSTABLE cease in my view, i feel it’s fussy to do Ts and crosses thoroughly at the router desk. Given my druthers, I’d do them with a hand held router and a job-specific (and hence disposable) jig, resembling the lapping platform proven within the drawing under. Use the mating workpiece as a spacer to put and align the aid platform. Screw the aid platform to the fences and you’re able to get to paintings. handheld Router whilst slicing this joint with a handheld router, I want a fixed-base router, instead of a plunge. i exploit an identical planer-mortising bit, yet I mount a pilot concerning the shank of the bit. The lapping platform I make from 4 scraps and a dozen drywall screws. i take advantage of the particular workpieces to scale it. start by way of clamping the jig’s fences to the sides of a workpiece. those fences must be a section under the thickness of the workpieces and their edges must be immediately and parallel for the jig to paintings good. subsequent, set the most platform at the workpiece and the fences. I frequently use a few ¾” medium-density fiberboard for this, yet plywood is okay for this software. sq. it at the jig, then screw it to the fences. Make the reduce with a mortising bit with a shank-mounted pilot bearing. Trapped among the structures, the bit produces a delicate, square-shouldered minimize that completely suits the width of the workpiece. ultimately, lay your mating workpiece around the first, tight opposed to the platform’s guiding area.
