So this might sound like a question I should now the answer to as I have been woodworking for a little while BUT

I am making Hexagonal units and it’s one thing to dial in the 30° miter angle on the chop saw, with that accomplished I need to have all piece the exact same length I usually place a stop on my fence but I’m not getting the results I need for tight mothers

To be very specific I’m cutting 30° On 2×4 stock to achieve the angles needed I have to turn the board over as my miter saw is not s double bevel saw..

I thought about using a piece of stock with the 30° bevel cut into it as a stop but that is only good for one of the 2 cuts needed as I need to turn the board over face for face..

Any ideas

Hi Ed, sounds like you just need to fine tune your angle. Repeat cuts should be a given after that.

Have your say...
