Small Part Dowel Spacing

Small Part Dowel Spacing

I've run into a little quandary. Based off of some AWI standards and various iterations of our shop's normal methods, I've had to modify the dowel hole spacing. Small parts (i.e. nailers and spreaders) need to get the first dowel at 30mm and the next at a 64mm spacing from the first.
This differs from the regular sized parts' spacing, obviously. So I had to add a global G!Dowel_Target_Spacing_Small_Parts and modify the lookup table for custom spaced dowels' (row 6 column F) Target Spacing to read: 
=IF(C6<Dowel_Small_Part_Threshold,Dowel_Target_Spacing_Small_Parts,Dowel_Target_Spacing)
Still a lot of other messing about to get everything to work right, but thought I'd share.

I don't know if this can be filed under:

  3. Big things have small beginnings
  4. This is why I'm losing my hair
