My scanner isn't working so I can't post a sketch. For example lets say your part is 1 1/2" in diameter at the bottom. Just screw a piece of wood 3/4"x 1 1/2" wood to the bottom of it making a T shape. This would hold the part for you as well as holding the part where you could cut both sides and have both cuts parallel with each other.Can you elaborate on this? I'm not sure how it's different than my sketch.
I definitely like this idea for added stability. Would you just carve that out with a dremel?
That's a handy tip. However, I'm leaning toward the screw idea though since it's more easily repeatable (just thread the piece on and go).
I like the bandsaw because it's quick and I'm familiar with it (especially if I'm going to be making the jig anyway). I'm familiar with the belt sander too but anytime I try to use the belt sander for something like this, I manage to screw up the angle or go too far.
