    Watch Your Head, He's Got A Guillotine!

    I've always had the worst luck in cutting accurate mitered corners, so I thought I'd give this a try.

    Congratulations, Dan. Those are handy machines. It's on my bucket list. Where did you get yours?

    Clamp the workpiece well. Take tiny slices.

    Store the handle somewhere away from the machine!!!!

    Don't ask me how I know!

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Very very thin shavings! As in thinner than hundredths. Anything bigger and you will be disappointed with the results.

    If you have never used one they take a little getting used to.
    What I always do is but the piece to be cut up to the face of the blade then move the blade and advance the piece less than a hair forward. Preferrably an icelandic hair and not a mediterranean one.

    My father had one similar in his professional shop. It was much used, a very valuable tool.
