  • BandAid's Anvil

    This is probably late, but I haven't been over at the picturetrail site to prowl for a long time. Capt. Bandaid, that Anvil and Hammer are REALLY neat!!!!

    Nice work, and quite innovative.

    Al, thanks. It was really pretty simple. I cut it out on the bandsaw, shaped it with the beltsander and drum sander. Finish sanded it, stained and lacquered it, glued it down. It is currently sitting on my desk at work with my business cards resting between the hammer and the anvil.

        That's a beauty, Cap'n. Is that a little reverse metallurgy? Of course, modern metallurgists arre material scientists, dabbling in all materials. You're going to get me hooked on knife making one of these days. We have everything I need at work, since we do our own tool and die work and heat treat our own tooling. Sounds like I'm missing a little gumption, huh? I can always claim that heat treating isn't summer work in Ohio; I'll have to wait until winter. Keep up the good work and keep posting those pictures.

                The anvil is black walnut as is the hammer head. The base and hammer handle are butternut. The anvil measures about 4' tall and 8' long.

                  'Have you ever felt a Texas Summer? ' I hear you Cap'n, but isn't that a 'dry' heat?

                      The last time I visited with Denny Winter 2020, I had an opportunity to try out the PEGA Saw that Denny has set up in his store. I was extremely impressed with the saw performance. It will be the saw that replaces my EX21 when I need a replacement. When I visite Denny I was considering purchasing it...

                      When I worked retail, we would have products plainly labeled "One rebate per address". And people would go ballistic six weeks later when their claims for three or four got shot down.
                      Can't imagine if it had been in small print like the ads of today.

                      Pegas Scroll Saw speed changes randomly
                      by mccrookston
                      First time posting.
                      I have a Pegas Scroll Saw that is almost 2 years old.
                      I saw about 1-2 hours a night right now and the speed will slow down and speed up on its own.
                      Sometimes it will run full speed for a week and then switch to slow for a week.
                      Any ideas on what might be causing...

                      That is the one store I physically get sick as soon as I walk in. The odor of rubber is overwhelming and I’m good for 3 minutes before I have to leave. Sure glad other stores aren’t like that. Hmmm maybe my bank balance would be higher if they were.

                      I wonder if their effort to offer better quality products may have something to do with it. Seems like they want to market themselves as something more than just a cheap tool supplier. Maybe reducing the number of things eligible for the big discount coupons is part of a campaign to change their image....
