  • Using silicone spray instead of tape.

    I found a way not to use tape anymore. I was using silicone spray on the garage door rollers. It came to me, why not using the spray on the pattern and see if the wood still would leave burn marks.
    The silicone on the tape helps to release friction.
    I had an old # 3 blade in the saw. Started cutting and it started to burn right away. Took the can and sprayed the wood and I could not believe what I saw.
    The burning stopped. After cutting about 6 inches some very light burning came back. Remember that it was an old blade what should have gone in the trash bin.
    Sure makes it a lot easier than using tape.
    Hope to hear from others after they try it.

    Mike sounds like a great idea. Question I have is wouldn't the silicone in the spray affect the finish you would be putting on the wood?

      I sprayed it on the wood just to try it. I would spray it on top of the pattern when cutting.
      One more thing I found out. I like to use very little glue on the pattern. The pattern will come lose on some spots. When I use tape and the pattern comes lose, I put my finger on the tape behind the blade, to hold the pattern down.

        Well, yesterday, I shot my 18 in the morning. The grands came over and I got one of em to try it out. I had to demonstrate so I got another 12 or so in. Last night I finished up with 90 for the day. Going to challenge myself to one hundred arrows a day for one hundred days. Made an excel spreadsheet...

        For me to write something like this with my woodburner, even with the fine ball tip pens, is just not possible for me. The variations in the wood grain really complicate things.
        The laser doesn't care about grain....

        A few weeks ago Elliott was looking around and saw a bow and arrows in the rafters in the basement. PopPop I didn’t know you had a bow and arrow. I don’t. It’s Mimi’s. Been a long time since I used it. Maybe I should get it out again.
