  • This guy has a neat way to do it. Also he’s using @Vaughn’s favorite Arbortech blade to remove the high spots to get better contact with the full contour… This is essentially the same process used to blue-print and hand scrape machine tools to mate the dovetails. You put some paint on one surface, press it against the other surface, and see where the paint transfers… Then, if you don’t have good enough contact, you remove some material at the high points where it transferred paint, and try again.
