Default link to tutorial doesn't work....

Hi,

I'm a newbie here, I'm a woodworker and mechanic by trade with some experience as a machinist weekender.... I need to find how to make a rectangular to round transition for my jointer to collect the dust and wood chip out of it ....

The 6 "deep transition box that was on this jointer when I bought it.... doesn't work ....it is a rectangular box 13 1/2" X 15 1/2" X 6" with the dust collecting 6" round on the side of it. This is not working ....


No more thinsmith in my area, they all retired a long time ago...

Where are the link to the tutorial that will teach me how to find the true lenght for a transitional box form rectangular to round??? All the link I click just bring me to a 404 page or unable to open the page message....

I'm ready to learn if anybody is ready to teach me !!!

Please any help will be appreciate. :-))))

Sorry about the link, I'll get it fixed by morning. We no longer use that script so we have been working on adding new updated links to the library...a work in progress.


Welcome to the site.

Question square to round mind&#$"":^$%$#

trying to follow the practices for rectangular to round but I dont understand how to develop the true to length triangle. When you get time can you break it down a bit more (for dummies!)

A good way to learn/ practice layout skills is to make a tin man!
