I have a question about setting drift and distance from the blade.
I just added a torsion box surround to my little Delta Shopmaster band saw table top. I have made a makeshift fence that locks in a t-slot on either end of the torsion box. I set the drift by cutting half way through a board and marked that angle. Then I try to set the distance from the blade for the cut and set the fence parallel to that line. I am trying to use a bevel gauge to set the angle but am finding it cumbersome to maintain the distance and maintain the angle.
Is there a better way to do this or do I just need to be a little more patient in getting both right for an accurate cut?
