I prefer to drill the holes for the cross pin before separating the sides.
I set the drill press so that the spur just breaks through to the other side. I then turn the blank over and complete the hole from the other side.
A perfect hole with no breakout.
I also like to create the chamfers on the drill press. This conical bit from lee Valley gives excellent results.
Here are the sides separated on the band saw. I use a Lennox Trimaster carbide tipped blade and it gives a very smooth cut requiring the minimum of clear up.
Cleaning off the band saw marks with a Stanley No81 scraper fitted with a Hock blade, an awesome combination!
The centre section has the bed angles marked on ready for cutting on the band saw. These good quality bevel gauges from Chris Vesper hold their setting perfectly, avoiding costly mistakes.
