Edge jointing accuracy ()

David Weaver
..difficult - 8/4 guitar blank, 20 inches long, glue joint front and center and part of the body indefinitely, and too short to clamp together easily (the result is usually a visible glue line at one end of the joint).

As for the rest of the working, if you're preparing a joint by hand and you can prepare it straight and deal with none of what you're talking about (and halve or quarter the clamping, or even make it a rub joint), there's no reason to deal with reverse spring.
