Wot? Plain seats #4... Or is the driver gonna sit on da roof.

Gotta use your idea of the depth stop on the drop saw. I always keep thinking that setting the depth and maintaining the kerf is too much hassle… I’m unimaginative and would normally go for the scroll or I’d rather go through the arduous task of a dado set with height adjustment and trying to control the block… I like a challenge as it’s more prone to error.

Ducky my scroll saw is on it’s last legs so try not to use it any more than I have to, plus I will get a much sharper and straighter edge with the miter saw. I only do it this way if my fingers can stay far enough away.

For me it’s the speed of set up, takes seconds to flip the stop down and fine tune the depth of cut.
Notice in the picture I ran a line out from the picture and did some test cuts out away from the part.

#4, hope you didn’t misconstrue my intentions. It was meant as a big thank you as the practice is more practical from what I employ (even if the scroller was NOT heading for that big workshop in the sky).

Sorry #4 but I have to agree with Crowie. My past statements of “I’m going to play with my models” kept earning me a moon-slap from the missus (ouch!)... So now it’s ”TOYs here I come!”...
