Boring At An Angle

Figure 11-7. To bore a hole at an angle, tilt the table use the fence as a backstop or clamp the workpiece to the table.

To bore a hole at an angle, simply tilt the table at any angle you desire, from 900 left to “0,” in toward the power plant. If possible, mount the rip fence on the table and use it as a backstop(Figure 11-7). If the workpiece is very large, you'll have to clamp it to the table to prevent it from slipping. Caution: If the angle is acute and you're boring through the workpiece, remember to protect both the table and the rip fence with a scrap block.

Figure 11-8. You can also bore at an angle by using the miter gauge. The miter gauge stop rod can be used to keep the bit from pushing the stock out of alignment.

Another way to bore at an angle, is to use the miter gauge. Figure 11-8 shows boring at an angle using the miter gauge stop rod to keep the bit from pushing the stock out of alignment.
