    Ah so more jigs to make, and store.  
     
    I really need to work 2 days a week for 5 days pay so I have 5 days to be in the shop.  Which is where I wanted to be in the first place.

    Well this resolves how this is done.  I made a jig for pens that is a metal channel, wood glue doesn't stick to it.  Just jam all the pieces in it with glue and adjust clamp.  Never thought about leaving some wood to keep the assembly as one piece.
     
    Pictures are sometimes better to explain than my attempt with words.

    Very true, for me it comes down to working with what I have verses what I cannot afford.

    When I use 45 elbows to create a 90 I grind off that little shelf inside the fitting. Reason: you want the walls as smooth as possible because any bumps or restriction cause disruptions in airflow and reduce suction.
     
    Interesting little tidbit here.  I have used PVC a lot over the years for many different things other than plumbing and never thought about the inside of it much.
