        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.

                      When a blade slips out, the tendency is to tighten it more. Make sure you haven't over-tightened the clamp forcing the sides apart. Most OEM clamps are made from soft aluminum so once it starts they will continue spreading and it will be near-impossible to keep the blades in place.

                      Blade slippage is a function of the blade clamp holder and or the set screw and thumb screw with swivel.

                      Tricia what saw do you have? Does the blade slip or it just won’t tighten?

                      Have you tried to rough up the thumb screws tips? How old are the blade clamps? may be time to replaced them.
