Made my first box joint, not a full box though. The joint on the first try was really loose, The pins were too small I think, re-aligned and made the “kiss” on the blade a bit closer and then made the “fit” of the slot a bit tighter. I think I measured the blade without making sure the tooth was at it’s highest point. I kept forgetting to tighten and un-tighten things as I was setting stuff up.
I need to get what I need to do if things are a bit tight, or loose.
Need to get more .5 by 2.5 inch poplar tomorrow and possibly get over to Woodcraft to pick up some clamps.
