Joe in a Cleveland suburb
I need to rip some pieces of plywood. They need to have a 22.5 degree bevel on one edge and I am wondering about a couple things.
The finished width will be 5" and the length is about 24".
I am concerned about safety doing this.
When I rip the bevel, should the blade be tilted towards or away from the rip fence - I've never been too sure about this.
Also, would it make sense to rip the pieces wide, say 5-1/2" with a bevel, then put the beveled side against the rip fence and rip to final width?
Safety with my 1023SL (w/splitter) is always on my mind. I've never been too sure on the safest way to rip a bevel.
I know these are rather newbish questions, but the older I get, the more concerned with safety I get and the more I question myself ...
Hope I'm asking this right and making sense.
The pieces are for a corner cabinet thingy I am making.
