    So I posted in another thread about gathering some supplies for making an inlay for an upcoming project. I got some time today and did my first go at laminating veneer and thins together. I don't have a vacuum bag, so I used clamps, lots and lots and lots of clamps. :cool:

    I am using that thread as my reference for this inlay. Here's a couple pics...

    I haven't gotten around to cutting the triangles yet, I'm making a table saw jig that will be able to be used for this as well as segmented cutting. Just need to get a couple toggle clamps and it'll be complete. Thanks for looking!

    Looking really good. Pictures of jig please- I have been thinking of this also- I have been thinking of setting up vacum to suck peices away from blade-is this a dumb idea??? anybody try that??

    I'll be sure to post up a couple pictures of the jig here once I'm all done with it! I was thinking about using a toggle clamp to hold down the piece to be cut, but using a vacuum sure sounds interesting if you have the means.

    The jig should be able to handle cuts from 0 to 30 degrees on the TS.

    Matt, I was thinking to set vac hose up on jig so piece cut got sucked into vacum when cut so blade did not touch again after cut then I would just retrieve from vac can. Maybe that will not be a problem But??

    I actually thought that was a really good idea to try, I just don't have a vacuum!

    Roy thanks, Jet and no vibration either-maybe overthinking process. I know I can't get to it for a while so all I can do is think about methods. Have plenty of projects to finish.

    Roy that is almost evil to make something like that-makes me dizzy just looking at it.:wacko1::wacko1::wacko1::wacko1: and it was pushing the envelope to claim that I was anywhere near normal before that.........
