For those of you that cut multi angle frames, what piece of equipment do you use. We have a chopper and a table saw but was thinking if a miter, chop saw is what I need? Would a nice Dewalt be accurate enough? Mike
I understand the creative desire to want to do it, but the other side of my brain whispers in my ear that it's not worth it.
I shudder at the thought. Not only of the setup, but also getting my VN42 back to normal after years of getting it exactly where I want it to be. No Thanks.
I have an extra angle attachment for my FrameSquare saw and it works very well. Also an old Barton multi-angle vise. I've made many octagonal and rectangular frames with angled corners. I saved some discontinued sets of painted profiles and made 10 and 12 sided multi-color frames. I put a few V-nails through the outside edges before I got the hang of it.
888's model 8028 is pretty much identical to the Barton, at least the same as the one I own. Interchangeable jaw plates for 3,4,5,6, & 8 sided frames. Could you provide a link to their vise that fits your description? "the Barton's Multi Angle Vise that allow any angle to be joined".
