Example text

Wing nuts washers When chamfering with a molding head you can use a 45-degree cutter or, if you rotate the stock 45 degrees, you can use a straight cutter. I use a straight cutter, because it will create a symmetrical curve at the stop. Don’t shape a large cut on a slender piece of stock without a jig (A). A well-constructed jig positions your hands at a safe distance from the cutter and adds mass to the piece being shaped. Begin by positioning the work in the jig (B). Tighten the wing nuts securely (C).
