52 degree angle on table saw?11/4
I need to rip a 52 deg angle for some louver blades (matching existing) so I assume I need to make an angled bed for my table saw that will tip material the additional 7 deg. I will finish on shaper with an adjustable angle head.
Set your saw to 38 degrees and run the board vertically against the fence.
I should have mentioned that I need to rip the center of a 1 X 6 as well as each edge.
A tilting arbor shaper using a 45 degree cutter would work.
You could put a resaw blade on your band saw, if you have one, and set up a fence jig to pass the material through the blade at the required angle, and then clean up with the shaper.
If you have a 45 degree cutter for your shaper, you could make a 7 degree fence and use a power feeder to pass your pieces through at a reasonable feed rate, possibly without needing to saw first.
Or use the adjustable angle head at a reasonable feed rate, possibly without needing to saw first.
Rip to the center of a 1 x 6? I am having difficulty picturing exactly what you are trying to have as a finished piece. Post a drawing and perhaps you might get better solutions.
my first thoughts are: Woodmaster moulder or Williams & Hussey (ShopFox mini moulder)
louver blades are flat, no? with the angle determined by the position they're set at .
are you trying to mill a false louver type application?
also, if you're ripping up 6x beams, that would seem more like a general carpentry project than an architectural millwork one, in which case the go-to tool (for me anyway) would be my worm drive Skil Mag77, Bigfoot conversion (10.25" blade)
