Easy BoxJoint Maker 3.2

Post by jimandi5000 »

Hello All,

I hope you and your family are in good health.

I was making some boxes on the mill using the Easy Box-joint Gadget 3.0. After cutting a few, I found I needed to add some relief cuts to each side of the board to prevent tearout. I went ahead and updated the code to Version 3.2 and now it adds a gentle relief on each side of the finger joint. Please review and let me know if you find any issues.

I'm getting bored sitting around so I'm gonna ask, are there any request out there for a Gadget?

I believe these pictures should be self explanatory, but if you have questions don't hesitate to let me know.

It works!! But I always have to remove

Code: Select all

require("mobdebug").start()
.

Rather than commenting it out is there a download or setting so the nil error doesn't show up.

Hello All,
Here is Version 3.3
I was running the Box Joint Gadget today and found I needed to add clearance value to adjust the fit of the joint.

Fixed:
1. Commenting out debug code (Thanks AcBCDN)
2. Added the Clearance function (+ or - values) and made updates to Dialog (see picture below)
3. Incremented the Version number


Next Step:
1. Make a video on how to use the Gadget
2. Write the Help File

Have a look and let me know.

Okay! :)

I have a help document for Version 3.3

Please let me know if you see any issues.

I don't think I need to make a video now but please let me know if you think I should.

A sliding dovetail joint gadget would be nice to have. It’s a great joint and easy to cut once you figure it out.

hi Bilk,

I can do that! I am about to complete the Dovetail Gadget, I am about 95% done. I as soon as I am done I will bang one out for you to test drive. :)
Thanks,
Jim
