I know I see a lot of guys using a jig to use their table saw to make scarf joint angle cuts. What is the advantage of using the table saw? Has anyone tried a chop saw? I would imagine the blade will be a major factor. I have very smooth blades on both. I feel like my chop saw would be easier.

Can you take a photo of this setup?

I decided to move my fence back toward my body so that the neck would sit over wood and have some support. I can't think of a disadvantage of it yet. I also added two hand holds rather than just one. Just for extra push. If the Aluminium flexes too much I could always add a few more fastners. I have it set to 12 degrees right now. Right now if I max out the blade I can do a 1.5" piece with a hair to spare.
Sure. Check these out. I am going to cut off my aluminum so it doesn't hang over as much. It is currently non-adjustable.

IS there a way to make a jig to do this kind of cut on a radial arm chop saw?
I would think. If you made a compensating angled jig thingy. Same deal with chop saw.

That IS a great video! Although. I wish I had a good bandsaw like that.

Here's a guy who's figured out a rig for a table chop saw, but his drawing is still confusing me. I"m going to try to use this idea on my next necks for the mando-like-object and the diatonic banjo.

I used a chop saw on my first neck, but I think a table saw would be better.
