For pattern work with a guide bushing..get a Porter-Cable-Type base and some brass screw-on bushings..
I get my stuff fromMLCS
Also, For really critical cuts, coat the pattern edges with epoxy, paint, or even wax, to keep snags and bumps to a minimum.
I'd fix the pattern with some schmutz (epoxy/wood dust/silica) and carry on!
I think it's time to place that order...
Tomorrow though, I think I have to start a new side using the laminated strip method...
