    Are you just fixing the sawn surfaces together or machining them first? I'd be concerned about fixing sawn edges together...

    no I'm not milling them and I'll probably face the repercussions of it in the way of needing more adjust-ability. I could do it on my current cnc machine, but it'll probably just be more of a pain as I don't know how square the machine is. I just popped it together as the stuff I do on it isn't that accurate.

    I've got some proper photos this time:

    so far so good. I'm loving the height gauge and I've been making all the holes line up perfectly, no drilling a bigger hole then needed.

    I do have a problem drill into the end of the ganrty plate. at 1100mm long it's a bit tricky to put it in my tiny drill press. and my cordless is a bit kak.

    might have to take it to my old school.

    I've got a few more pictures on my Flickr, it's tricky to grab the url on my phone. I'll update this properly tomorrow.
