So my Maslow is on the way and before I get it I have a few questions. I’m new to all of this so forgive me if I ask obviously stupid questions.
I have a few projects in mind for when I receive it and both require pretty precise measurements for the parts to fit together perfectly. My question is can I cut the parts without adding tabs and without sacrificing accuracy? In other words are tabs required for all projects? If I can cut without them, how do I prevent the sled from catching or the wood from falling?
Secondly if I do have to use tabs how does everyone cut the piece out without damaging the work piece? For example let’s say I have a cut that is perfectly straight, how do I make sure to remove the tab from the work piece without compromising my straight line and without adding a lot of extra manual work to insure it’s straight?
Lastly how is the Maslow at cutting precise holes? And what bits are best for straight cuts without too much material waste and for cutting holes? I’m using the Ridgid R22002 router.
Thanks everyone in advance.
