Re: Past project

OK enough. If you don't know the answer then say so. You're so full of putting out petty, niggling little digs and then when clarification is asked for you throw a hissy fit. You give inaccurate information and then when queried say 'Oh..the bandsaw might have slipped' and then try and deflect from ...

Picture two .
The section on the end doesn’t look square, ie the top looks wider than the underside. Or is it an illusion?
It's an illusion. Poor mobile phone.

But does the rest look OK ?

Also if you think about it your neutral zone centre point won’t be correct if your not starting in the centre of both ends.
I disagree. As I said before, there are plenty of books out there that do not mark up the centre of both ends.

Re: Staircase upgrade

It fits. That's the main thing plus what you are seeing has also a long straight bit. It's regulation length !

If by 'a bit out' you mean the gap at the end where the 'reference' post is then that's only because the joint between wreath and easing has dropped.

Re: sawdust not moving from project

Welcome to the forum. I'm not familiar with either of the routers that you mentioned, but rather than blowing the dust away you should be looking to hooking a router up to a dust extractor. Most routers have some kind of of dust collection shroud. The Katsu doesn't and, AFAIK, neither does the DN66.
