I put together the seaming jig Herrick Kimbal described in his Taunton book. Works perfectly and avoids having to set up clamps, straightedge, blocking, etc. Only thing I did different was to use 3/4″ on the bottom. I also agree with Herrick about the Porter Cable underscribe base- it does allow laminate shavings to contaminate the glue surfaces and for this reason is useless for it’s stated purpose. There is a situation that I can think of that could make use of this base, and that is when one or both laminate pieces have a scribed perimeter in addition to a required straight seam. Please comment on your seaming experiences.
