How do i put a 45 degree bevel on an edge there don't seem to be any chamfer bits in the cutter area why?
Thanks Brian

Brian,

I made 2 profiles for 'undercutting' miters on pieces called, Miter Left and Miter Right. Basically they're 2 HUGE isoceles (sp) triangles offset correctly. I tried making one for 3/4 stock, but as soon as I needed a bigger one I realized '45 degrees is 45 degrees' no matter how long my profile is.

They're big ol' ugly triangles, and they work great.

Try the Whiteside WS5720-NOBEARING with a 3/16 left offset and a -3/16 (negative) plunge.

Don't feel bad Mike, I did too at first. I thought Brian had really gone off the deep end because I know he can miter the end of a board :joker:

Dan i do mean miters or more correctly bevels on the upright edge of a piece of ply for my back of the island. If this doesn't make any sense it's because i have logged toooooo many hours on e cabs in the past three days.

You're wanting to do this right? This is what I did with the tool and settings above.

Dan the backs of the cabinets are what i am trying to bevel or miter, hopefully to create a point to make the island top have a node to attach to for the countertop, but instead i super zoomed and chopped away at the back in the construction settings area so they looked right.

Thanks though.

Is it something like this? I did this on all four sides instead of just one like I think you are wanting.

If this is what you want, here is crude the tool I just made to do it.

Ah Haaa! You want a 67.5 angle on each piece so you end up with a 135 degree angle. Now I understand what you are doing.

You could still do the same thing in the shape manager by making a tool. Draw a rectangleof a suitable size and put a 2 dimension chamfer on it where one dimension is the short side and the other is the long side.

Then create a tool from that shape and use it in the profile mode of the part editor.

Dan, I tried that but i can't get a dimesion to machine the part to.
we need a trim or miter function available in the editor area somewhere.
Like when i can make two pieces cross each other on an angle i could use a trim to cut off the excess and have what i need. or a miter area that when two pieces cross each other they can be mitered , now that would be cool.

Is the side in the pic below what you're trying to do? I did it by creating the attached unglamorous .tol file in the shape manager. Load it into your "My profile tools" directory under thermwood in your public documents folder. Just set the plunge depth to -.75 in the tool selection menu.
