Okay. So I’m new to this whole kerf-adjustment thing. Tried making a case on http://www.makercase.com/. It asked the kerf as (beam width / 2) inches. As I found Dan stated the beam width is 5 mm. So! That told me I should tell it my kerf is 0.098425 in. Okay… Apparently not. Using Medium Maple Ply, my slots didn’t fit together. Just couldn’t quite do the trick. So I said "Hey! I’ll just cut that number in half and see what happens. This time instead of running the entire box, I just did 2 slats. WAY off this time. Like 0 way these things would fit together.
So now I’m tempted to go the opposite and try 0.19685 and see what happens. But, frankly, I’m sick of wasting my ! How the heck do I determine what value I should use here?
