Expensive Milli-second

Often the worst part of a mistake is admitting it and the barrage of questions that follow. I’ve always believed that the only way to get better is to admit your mistakes, share them so others don’t make them and take your punishment. Today I packaged up my Forrest saw blade for repair and resharpening and purchased a new Sawstop cartridge, not due to a possible injury, but because I brought a tenoning jig too close to the blade.

A couple of changes since this event occurred. I have added a piece of plywood to the surface of my tenoning jig to move the cast iron further from the blade, I will in the future be cutting on the outside of the tenon not on the inside.

    I would contact the company. That doesn’t sound like something that should have happened and it cost you a bundle of cash to remedy.

    May I suggest changing “Mili” to Milli” (with two L)

      Good catch and while I attempted to determine how may Ls should be in place realized that not only can i not spell but also I seem to need new glasses so that I can recognize misspelled words.
