Kerf

Postby Byron » Thu Mar 29, 2018 2:24 pm

Several TandJ plans call for a 1/16" kerf. I am having difficulty finding a tool to make such a small kerf. Any suggestions?

i used to use an ordinary dremel burr against a steel rule which will do the job, but have found a 1/16" router bit for it and now use the router base and a guide


they are generally for appearance sake so there are also other ways of getting that ... sometimes i use a pyrography pen and make teh outlines of doors etc with it

Hi Byron, I use a laser to cut following templates to use a trimmer or a Foredom on.

I appreciate that may not be the recourse to everyone, but as a suggestion, try these two sites,
http://lumberjocks.com/Dutchy/blog/116593
http://lumberjocks.com/Dutchy/blog/116769

If you need ideas with models and start banging your head against a brick wall, check out Projects on Lumberjocks by Dutchy, htl and Pjonesy... there are many more contributors but those 3 tend to go into good micro detail..
Also a handy link to pick up is htl's general building tips and jigs which he has indexed under,
http://lumberjocks.com/htl/blog/116729

Good luck!
There are two ways of doing things,,, My way or the right way.
