Man, I have zero interest in making structures. Love watching them get made though!

That's an interesting idea with the jig. I'm looking forward to the production of the wall. The wood looks good.

What do you mean when you said the aluminum straight edges were not holding to their maximum strength? I assume you are talking about the metal bars that the bar magnets are sitting on? Are they clamped to the work surface?
Thanks,
Tom

OK, didn't realize that was a steel plate underneath and couldn't figure out how the aluminum was being held in place! Fun with magnets!

Yes. This tool would be very helpful. But the wall looks already good at all. :thumbup:

But will you be able to maintain Jack's original pricing on it?

Here it is the same. After my today business work, I have built at the module of Taxari. I have soldered the 5 wires to the polarization switch of the turnout and then cut some thread in the manual switch rods. That relaxed me.

Hi Bernd,

Although I have never used a chopper, and I'm generally not too fussy with my cuts...

I have heard that one issue with the chopper is blade deflection.

The thin blade doesn't always cut straight down. It deflects left/right as it slices down.

This can be remedied by using a heavier chisel blade.
Showing thin blade deflection vs. chisel blade cut.
