[BKARTS] Board Slotting



One other thing you might find helpful Bob is a clamping system to
hold book boards absolutely flat   along the spine edge as they are
slotted. This was part of Chris Clarkson's initial design for the
system. I found that even very minor curve over an octavo length can
easily lead to cutting damage on thin boards as well as poor opening
of the rebacked book. And the clamp is also easily made part of a
carriage allowing fingers to stay well away from the blade.
Best, James
