the way he did this is to take measurements off the plans and transfer them to the model

for the Halifax you measure up from the jig to whatever you want to locate either the wales or under the caprail.
Take a measurement from the jig to the bottom of the keel to make sure you have the correct distance from the jig to the bottom of the keel.

Those gaps you see are from the way the laser is cutting depending on the focus of the beam the cut on the back side is greater than the front side causing the cut to be on a slight angle.

there are 2 things you can do as don said just fill the gap. What I do is ever so slightly touch the end of the piece to the center of my 4 inch disk sander and that squares the ends off and removes the char. If you don't have a disk sander I have also used a square block with sand paper on one surface and just a pass or two squares up the end

when you place the parts together there is a gap on one side

Happy you are back Dave, a couple of questions for you, you SAID THAT FOR WHATEVER LEGAL REASONS THAT THE PLANS WERE DISTORTED, can I still take the mesurments off the plans, when I first put together theKEEL ASSEMBLY IT WAS QUITE A BIT OFF FROM THE PLANS, what do I do,....also I elected to put the KEEL ASSEMBLY IN PLACE WIT FRAMES No. A AND V(first and last whole frame) and CLAMPED THE FRAMES TO THE KEEL NOTCHES,.....then adjusted the frames to the jig, mostly pulled up from the bottom of the jig, this would not matter as the frames eventually get cut off from the jig itself,....but would it not change the mesurments to underside of CAP RAIL AND THE WALE ITSELF,,,,,,pictures forth comming, NEED YOUR HELP ON THIS AND THE CANT FRAME BEVELING,...I JUST CAN NOT SEEM TO GET THAT THROUGH MY ANCIENT MIND, looking forward to your help.
