The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

It may be impossible to get it square to the molecule, but an Altendorf Sliding saw dialed in with new blades will get it squarer than anyone possibly needs.

Yep!
As long as I don't cut my fingers off, I will email pics when the project is finally done.

Also know as a cube. The saw you mentioned probably comes in at around $20,000, so it may be beyond the budget.
This project is about cutting multiples off a uniform thickness piece accurately at 90 degrees. The easiest way is to make "shafts" that are 1 CM X 1 CM and stack them together forming a block. Then use painter's tape to hold them from shifting on your "sled" and up against your stop block. Also use a piece across the end which will get cut of, cutting right through the tape.. This will keep the little cubes from rattling around in front of the saw blade and possibly getting damaged or launched toward the operator.


This is so easy, I wish that I could just do it and we can go one with life on WWT. I know, be careful what you wish for......

A good Altendorf was 30K 20 years ago.
And they come with a digital fence that you can dial down to 1/1000 of an inch.

Ok, well if you decide to do it, perhaps you can make a video tutorial.


I will save my pennies for one of those 20,000 saws.

you don't need that saw

This can be done on a $100 Craftsman table saw. Maybe I'll make a photo build thread and post it here. I need a new project.
