  • I think I need help.

    Seriously, I think I have a problem. The obsessive compulsive nature runs in our family and I know mine is with woodworking. Especially when it comes to lumber itself. I might have more boards in my shop then some lumber yards. When I go to our local lumber yard, I might be going for a couple of boards of white oak. But I leave with the white oak, and 7 other boards that I could not pass up because of their beauty.
    When I get down to say 3 gross of FD blades I have to order like 5 more gross.
    After I received the last order from Mike, I counted how many blades I have here.
    1450 blades of just my favorites, FD Polar #5's.
    This hobby has become my addiction, passion, escape, and great joy all rolled into 1.
    Anyone else have this problem? I doubt I am alone with this.

      Care to elaborate Janette?

      Obviously I have been this way for a long time. It did not happen overnight.
      I guess I am just accepting it more now. I had been in DeNile for a long time.

        OC behavior? What OC behavior? I call it being frugal. I even keep small scraps of thin plywood, about 3" x 3" and use them for ornaments when I get a chance. Forget about the larger boards. If I even mention that I am going to the lumber yard or that I am running low (down to my last two or three) on some thin stock and need to order some, my wife has a canary. I then have to cut something just for her.

        A day without sawdust is a day without sunshine.

          As long as your not offered a spot on the TV show Hoarders, you're good.

              Welcome to the Forum from NC. I have a WEN but haven't had any problems other than the blower and the blade clamps. I'm not real familiar with the mechanics of the saw but it sounds like something broke inside. As far as cutting straight, I feel that has to deal with the blades you are using or the...

              Welcome to the forum from Tennessee. I too have no experience with the Wen. I suggest you contact the business you bought it from. As a Pegas dealer, I would like to know these things and possibly help.

              Welcome to the forum. Sorry but I have no experience with the Wen brand. Did you check you-tube?
