taking off .0005

A few people have asked how I am able to take off .001 or even .0005 from the length of piece of metal. The secret is to use the compound. I set the compound to about 60 degrees. When the compound is at that setting, the tool bit advances to the left 1/2 as much as the dial says. So if you want to take off .003, advance the compound .006.
