Club member Stephen Beck of Earlimart, California, uses a simple and highly accurate method for adjusting the width of cuts on his band saw: He inserts the shank of a twist drill bit of the desired size between the fence and blade. Then he adjusts the fence carefully so the bit doesn’t cause the blade to deflect. Stephen points out that it’s a good idea to make a test cut to ensure accuracy. This method could easily be applied to other types of saws as well as routers.
