This one on the bottom has 32nds.

I just split the 16th.

When I was making windows I was splitting the 64ths.

Amazon.com

They send a counterfeit item and won’t let you review it honestly. I’ve had so many reviews rejected. Their reviewing system is totally bogus and can’t be trusted. Bozo owns Washington so it’s only going to get worse.

I've never had a problem leaving a negative review on the Canadian site.
