Boring Odd Shapes

Figure 11-15. An example of a guide used for boring odd-shaped pieces. Click on image to see larger view.

An odd-shaped piece, like a curved segment, can be set up for boring by simply positioning it correctly and then clamping it in place on the table. However, if you have many similar pieces to bore, you can make a guide that will place each piece in exactly the right position. This lets you work more accurately since it eliminates the possibility of human error. An example guide, shown just to demonstrate the concept, is shown in Figure 11-15.
