    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] This is something I put together for cutting my scales down. I find doing it on the grinder it stickers to the belt.
    This way it's fast onde dead flat.

    Have you tried this for flattening the scales? Was thinking of digging out the router table for this

    Yes I have it works great . I did a cut on all 4 sides just for a test when I set it up. I use parallel bars under the scales when I use it for flattening them. I just do one side on each then set my router to the thickness I want and both get cut extra the same. It's fast as heck witch I like.

    basically an upside down router table and instead of risking fingers moving a part back and forth you move the table.

    Not sure that really helps

    Hmm... I see a clamp in a box with a vacuum hose, and the router is behind. The box slides under the router?

    Will it's like John said plus it make very precision cuts. I can take two scales of wood put my parallel bars in cut the tops flat then flip them over and cut both to the exact thickness in very short time. A very big plus when your doing multiple pieces to glue together.
    The picture just don't show everything I left a little for the imagination.

    I guess I have no imagination then lol I still can't figure out what it does lol
    Is it basically just making the edges flat?

    No I just took a picture of the edge I will take a few more tonight .
    I buy blocks of wood sometimes so whe I bandsaw them into there never even . With this jig I put them in the vise cut one side flat on each then with my parallel bars in the vise each will be sitting at the same height. So with the router set at the thickness I want both will be cut the same . Very fast and and accurate way to cut things .
    It works the same as a milling machine only thing it turns fast for cutting wood and you move the router not the table like a milling
