Still working on the jig, Shane. It's being a pain in the bum at the moment… Can't seem to get repeatable results. Obviously, this is a problem.
I'm using a 3.5mm thick piece of pine as a spacing "key"; however, this is bending when I stack pieces over it.
I've decided to try 2 more designs. The first will be to have a aluminium "key" and I'm going to add a T-square to make sure that the timber is exactly vertical.
The second is going to use a piece of threaded rod, a finely divided rule and a magnifying glass to move the T-square. The rod will allow accurate movement of the carriage, while the magnifying glass and rule will (hopefully) allow really accurate positioning.
Hopefully, I'll be getting some Aluminium sheet this week (5mm) for the rear standard assembly. Have to learn how to mill this and how to anodise it.
I'm also going to drill the bolts that will allow the twin function/single knob adjustments on the standards.
