        The angle is 9.46 degrees. But that's hard to mark. Instead, I just put in the measurements for the front and back of the legs and body. In both cases the front is just 1/8" shorter than the back. For the legs the back is 2 1/2" and the front is 2 3/8" (measured up from the feet). For the body the back is 2 1/8" and the front is 2" (measured down from the shoulders). The hinge goes on the front on the short sides of the legs and body. Hope this helps and have fun flipping!!!

              Just a guess but Fox Chapel sells two books from Bob Gilsdorf.

                  I have used it on a few projects and it worked on some, not so good on others.
                  What I found was the yellow on BB plywood is too light in pigment--even with two coats full strength. Had to scrap some pieces and pick another color. The red, blue, green, orange did great. I should say the dyes mix...

                  Along with what Tango said. The earlier saws did not top feed,not exactly sure when the change happened. I personally would not buy a Hawk that has the lower barrel style clamp. I would look for a saw 2005 or newer. That has the new clamps Variable speed, top and bottom feed.
                  If you can get...

                  Thanks for the info, Rolf. Sounds like the Corian was the culprit. Interesting.

                  I have a Wacom tablet for several years, I too find it frustrating to use. I have never been able to get comfortable with the eye hand coordination that a tablet requires. I find the mouse far more convenient. I know that there those swear by it, I swear at it.

                  I have tried really hard with Inkscape and Paint. Dabbled in a few others. Mostly I find it to be a glorified mouse that I have to be overly carefuly to keep my hand off of the surface while using. True graphite and paper artists don't allow their hand to brush the paper because the graphite would...
