  • Question for Jim Kape (Chess Piece Weight)

    Hello Jim
    I have you book "Making Wooden Chess Sets" on page 29 you say the "According to the Staunton standard the pieces should be weighted" And you say to used lead shot or something else to add weight. But you dint say how much each piece should weigh or is there a set about you add to each piece. Thank you for your help.

    Using Corel Draw a 10 inch round acrylic jigsaw puzzle was created. It was the cut on an Epilog Laser. Two passes were used to cut thru 1/4 acrylic so as not to melt the plastic. Only one person has put it together so far. It is about 475 pieces. But would really like to try and cut one by...

    As far as the Incra miter gauge, if you keep it 1/4 inch away you will be fine, but you will have to adjust it when doing angle cuts, it’s a great miter gauge, RJ...
