so I was mucking around to day, sorting though some old decks and mountains of bike parts when I desided to cut a board in half... I rigged a quick jig and ran it though the table saw. about 1/2 way though the cut I remembered that I had not figued in the off set. so now I have one half that is roughly 4mm wider then the other.

so the question is, do i leave it, it wont matter. or do I take 4mm off the wide half and even the whole thing up? :banghead:

I doubt it will matter. Who cares if one ski is a little wider than the other when you're skinning along? When you put it back together for the ride down it'll be as tight as if you made the cut perfectly. Just ride it, you should be fine.

you also risk your cuts not matching up as nicely if you go for the second shave of the big half.

edit: i guess the previous poster sort of alludes to that as well ...

it would be no problem making it match. i'd just put the jig back on, move the fence in 4mm and run it. but I'm just going to leave it. the project is on hold till the hardwear comes in. :jumping the gun:

thanks for the advice though
