        Just when you think you have seen most of everything a guy like this appears to astound you! Where do these guys find their imagination, skill and incredible patience to come up with works of art such as these? Amazing work!

        Thanks for link Mike and also for allowing me to give my wife a good reason for not throwing away all the wood chips that usually bury my shop back home until I get nagged enough to have a clean up !

          Fantastic!!!!!!! My wife's comment, a very quiet "Don't get any ideas."

          A day without sawdust is a day without sunshine.

            I bag mine up and put them on the neighbors fence. He uses all my scraps for his nightly camp fire. He puts bags of oranges, in season, on my fence so I need to reciprocate.

                      I am guessing that your clamps have probably spread due to usage. I am not aware of any aftermarket clamps that fit your saw. Did you look at to see if they sell clamps for your model? Sorry I could not be of more help.

                      I have a craftsman saw. The blade just slips out.

                      I put those on my 20" Dewalt a couple years ago. Big improvement from the one Dewalt had....

                      We need to know what saw you are using, as they have different clamps.
