Hi,

I need to rip a wedge off some 5/4 stock, similarly to how one would profile a panel for a cabinet door. My table saw is a RH tilt model grizzly. I've only ever seen a door profiled on LH tlt saws.

Assuming I use a tall stock aux fencewith a sacrificial face, is there a reason the drop should be on the outside of the blade? Would it be better to place the rip fence on the left-hand side of the blade to accomplish that?

Ive done that-no problem, and a safer way to work.
If you are going to do panels make up a false high fence to control the stock.
Cheers
Philly :D

I also have a right tilt Grizz.
I have done the same thing on my saw.
As Phil says: fence on left side of blade, tall fence. It came out fine.

Philly, Travis,

Thank you for the quick replies.

I've got my fence on the right now. I'm going to move the fence to the LH side of the blade. I can handle mirroring everything a lot easier than I can figure out how to use LH tilt tehniques work for RH tilt and RH fencing.
