It only helps briefly. My DNA report shed some light into why I can drink coffee at bedtime without losing sleep. I’m an ultrarapid metabolizer of caffeine (CYP1A2 enzyme), so I really just get a brief window of nonfuzzy brain function, and then the brain fog descends again.
At least one of the 3 genotypes involved was homozygous, meaning you’d have it too, so there’s a good chance you burn through it as quickly as I do.
I took those pictures with my phone. You can see from this angle how far below it is from the horizontal laser plate you can see. If you have a cell phone camera you can check these things live (before closong the lid and starting the laser of course )
Chuckle! Don’t let that slow you down, the group multitasks very efficiently. Don’t want to inhibit the crumb tray redesign on your part, but there are tutorials and previously created strategies for dealing with cutting without the crumb tray that might save you some time:
And some freebies for support in the Free Files section:
You know, you ought to sell those plans in the Catalog one of these days…that’s my favorite jig setup to date…could easily make different height spacers out of the legs to make it a Tray Table. (Unofficial new term that I hope catches on.)
Thanks for the info. I’ll have a look at it. Right now, I’ve got some scrap MDF, and some old moulding that’s almost exactly the right thickness. Cut cut cut, dowel rods to lock it in place (just like the original), bam. I’ll post a pic once it’s finished.
I have used jigs that butted up against the door for repeatability, but in this case I just visually aligned the items. The overall height is 0.35" above where the crumb tray would have been. So I entered 0.35" as the material height.
Also have been known to run a position test on a replica piece of scrap MDF positioned in the slots before doing many multiples. Once it’s dialed in it doesn’t move.
hah, as a musician, gaffer’s tape is lifeblood for setting up on stage. so many cables to trip over if they’re not taped down… i use it for lots of GF stuff, like testing to see if parts cut through (although still gorilla for cleaning out detailed masking).
