Then, we used the Rockler T-Slot Cutter router bit (part no. 26099) to rout the slots in the edges of the dadoes. If you don't have such a bit, you could also create each T-slot by cutting a 5/8" dado 7/16" deep and glue two 1/4"-wide strips 1/8" thick in place to create the T-slot in each dado. Change Drawing Body/Extendable Stop T-slot measurements 1/8" to 3/16" and 1/2" to 5/8". See Sounding Board issue 213, page 6.

I am constructing the loft bed in issue 231. With the dimensions being used on part X "outer stringer" the 6" measurement and the riser are not parallel to one another and I feel they should be. Also the riser does not come out to the 10 1/2" measurement on the bottom riser. This tells me I have something wrong.

Didn't see an answer to this particular problem, so I will assume it does not exist. On several of your plans it calls for inserting a 3/4" diameter pipe into a 3/4" diameter hole. the problem arises in that pipe is figured based on the "inside" diameter instead of the outside. In this situation a 3/4" diameter pipe would require a hole diameter of at least 1 1/16" Thank you, Rev. Keith Jarrett

Issue 209 - Box Joint jig I am new a routing. My router will only extend above the table 15/16", with a 1/4" mounting plate. If I use a 3/4" bedplate on the jig, the bit will only extend 3/16" above the plate. I have a 5/16" dia. bit, so the extension needs to be 5/16". Are there longer bits available? Or does my Craftsman router have too short a travel? I am into woodworking on a shoestring budget.

I am currently working on the Playtime Express found in Issue #14, page #74 and have a question regarding part "U" the top of the passenger car. The plan calls out a 1/2" beading bit. The part is listed as 1/2" stock. This bit is too large to leave a reveal top and bottom as shown in the photo. Is it supposed to be a 3/8" or 5/16" bit?. If you center a 3/8" bit the piece wants to crawl under the bearing. Thank you, Sam Shanman.
