Adjust the Side Measurement

Step 2

After gouging this piece of cane, check the thickness of the measurement at the VERY SIDES of the gouge.  This is the furthest point that the gouge curves goes before it is interrupted by the flat surface of the planed piece of cane.  With this particular curve and with a piece of cane that is planed to be 8.0mm across the flat side, this thickness should be around 0.40mm to 0.42mm.  Adjust the Gouge Side Adjustment Screw accordingly to achieve this measurement.
