End work on long sash rails2/24/15
I'm making some sashes 12'-17' wide. Having a hard time keeping the rail square to the cutter when doing the tenon/cope cut. The opposite end wants to stay put. Any tricks out there?
Not sure by your post where the movement is. Slipping and going out of square or sagging of the table.
If it is movement causing out of square. An air clamp is the best solution and I think a necessity for tenoning. The lever operated eccentric clamps you see on most machines are hard to set just right.
I have experienced movement of light duty tables on sliding table shapers. We got around this by using a sawhorse like support as a outrigger.
A good tenoner or heavy duty sliding table shaper should be able to do those lengths with no issue.
Stop block on end and clamped to table with a after market toggle clamp is all I use on the tenonor. Not running it day in and out so i am front and center with that old beast when operating.
