  • Who's online? Mostly spiders.

    Hey guys, I was always impressed by the number of guests browsing the forum until I clicked "Quick Links" and "Who's Online"...the majority of the guests are indexing spiders, mostly from Yahoo.

    I know spiders need to crawl website content to keep their indexes up to date but their has to be a way for forum software logic to exclude these "guests" from the "Who's Online" list.

    ...a simple robots.txt file with the appropriate parameters limits their presense.

            So what exactly are spiders and what do they do

            The limits of the imagination are imaginary.

              The spiders are sent out by search engines such as Google and Yahoo to check the content of different sites. That way if someone googles "drilling holes for scroll sawing" it will bring up the site.

              I'll check with Rob about the tweak you suggested, Kerry, but I know he's swamped right might be a while before he can implement it!

                  Rolf, smaller bowl-cutting angles, 30˚ or less, usually don't present a problem either with vibration or for cutting into the table. It's when you get into the 40˚ and 45˚ range that things get dicey for both. (The Seyco saw doesn't even cut bevels greater than 35˚ or so!) If you add even a slight...

                  I've done some bevel cutting on my EX-21 as well and also have not experienced any added vibration, nor have I cut into the table. Perhaps I haven't cut at a steep enough angle, but the existing blade hole has been sufficient. I do despise the useless vacuum holes, but I've learned to live with them...

                  Carole Your hole size was a concern when I purchased the Pegas Replacement Table for my EX21, because I had cut into the side of hole on the original table, The damage I did to the old table was due to the blade adjustments were not in the center of blade holders. So far that has not been an issue...

                  That is an interesting point Carole. I have done some bevel cutting on the EX and can't say that I have experienced an increase in vibration or any problems with following the lines. I know when I cut one of your bowl designs on my Hawk I really had to concentrate on not pushing down hill....

                  Just a word of caution about the size of the blade hole. When I used a DeWalt years ago in the infamous community woodshop, and also with my more recent experiences with the Jet, if you do much bevel cutting at a steep angle, you will cut into the table. That's why inserts have the slot that can be...
