How to position a spoilboard

This article describes how to position and align a spoilboard.

< Previous | List | Next >

Positioning and aligning of spoilboard is important as it will allow you to:

  • Align your stock material using spoilboard’s edge as a reference.

  • Prevent the moving parts of SmartBench interfering with the spoilboard during a job.

Unclamp the Upper X Beam, raise it high enough to accommodate the total thickness of the spoilboard and the stock material you are planning to use; then reclamp the Upper X Beam in the raised position to prevent it sliding down and locking the materials.

Position the spoilboard roughly in the centre of the Y Bench.  

A: Spoilboard

B: Straight edge

M1 and M2: Measurement points

Using a tape measure align the spoilboard with the side of the Y Bench. 

We assume the spoilboard has a straight edge, which we can use to align it along the Y axis.

Measure the distance between the edge of the spoilboard and the side of the Y Bench at two points (e.g. M1 and M2), as far apart as possible. 

Repeat the operation several times until the edge of the spoilboard is aligned with the Y Bench.
