Default The Carousel Shooting Board Fence

I have now completed a manual for building and installing this fence.

Enjoy and I hope some of you make one for yourself.

It looks like a project I'll need to add to my "to do" list.

I'm not clear on the 8mm/6mm holes:
"This is repeated at the second hole. (Note in this picture I was using a tap for a M8 bolt. I later realized that a second M6 hole would be better one less set up tool needed)."

Thanks for yet another great tool!

Hi Ron

When I began developing this fence design, I used M8-sized holes. With a M6 bolt, there was a little under 2mm of microadjustment on offer. To set up the hole placement, I tapped the square position with a M8 thread and used an M8 bolt as the position-marker. That was the picture used.

In the final version I swapped this for a M6 bolt (since the meant I only needed to use one size to fit all). In the kit, with the exception of the square position, the holes are all drilled out with an 8mm bit. The square position is tapped for a M6 bolt, and needs to be drilled out to 8mm once it is positioned.

Hopefully this makes sense.

Regards from Perth

Derek
