Pad Sawing

Figure 14-33. Pad sawing is another way to produce many similar pieces. The pad of individual pieces is held together with nails or with tape.

Pad sawing is another way to quickly and accurately produce multiple pieces that have the same shape. The technique consists of holding together a pad of separate pieces, either by driving nails in waste areas or by using enough double-sided tape to do the job. The pattern of the part you need is drawn on the op piece of stock (Figure 14-33). The pad is then cut as if it were a solid block of wood (Figure 14-34). After cutting, the parts separate into individual pieces, all of them exactly alike.
