I understand and buy into what you’re saying Joe. The instruction book says “You can use one of the 1/32” or metric scales as a reference so you’ll know how much you’ve widened the rabbet with each pass”. In the video there’s no mention of this. He just scores it and then makes a few passes to finish it without any mention of how he knew his target width was hit. I completely understand what you mean in your “edit” help, and I’m looking forward to that part of the process. Maybe I’m being dumb but I still don’t get how to measure the rabbet’s width without having a scale zeroed. Again, I understand what you mean by wanting consistency for all the boards and this arbitrary starting point is fine for consistency, but what about the end point?
