My Journeyman is on a QCW (bottom mount) and has not yet been used. Preparing to flatten the spoilboard, I watched 1F’s video.
- My flattening bit can reach just beyond the board edges in the X-axis and the front edge (Y-axis). But it won’t reach the edge on the rear. The video showed flattening a separate board sitting on the MDF for the QCW. Is that second board what people actually call their spoilboard (I thought it was just an example for the video). If it is, they lose a bunch of Z-axis, but they can size it so that it’s entirely flattened.
- If the spoilboard is what I thought it was (MDF slats separated by T-track), then how do most users flatten the rear edge? Do they just make it shorter than the directions from 1F, or just tolerate a ‘lip’ at the back of the bed. The latter would make tiling a problem, but I have no immediate plans to use tiling.
