  • my cheap blower system

    i run a ryobi sc164vs the bellows does not do anything much of blowing sawdust off the lines im cutting, my wife loved what im using to solve that problem, just a plain ole straw just remember to breathe through your nose or youll suck up all the saw dust, another benefit is it keeps me from smoking while im cutting

    That's a good one.

      I tried that one, once. It worked pretty good until I sucked up a mouthful of saw dust. (I will be the first to admit that such a problem is easily remedied by remember that my hair is also blond and there are certain implications with that but . . . aaaahhhh . . . . I have to admit, I didn't try it again). Now a days when I hear about those people trying to swallow a teaspoon of cinnamon I keep going back to that mouthful of sawdust. . . . . uh uh, no way for this boy!

        If it works to keep you from smoking I say GO FOR may or may not know other people use a fish tank pump to blow the sawdust off when their bellows fail. Just saying.

          WOW, I would have a problem concentrating on cutting, if I had to aim the straw. Or do you have the straw mounted some way. I think I'll stick with the one on my saw. HA

                  What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                  The bags seem easier on the surface.
                  But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                  Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

                  As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

                  I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....

                  I shrink wrap all my puzzles. It is the best method I have found. I do not use a cardboard backer as some do. I use shrink wrap bags that I get from Amazon or Ebay. 8" x 12" will fit 95% of the puzzles I make.

                  To use the bags you will need a sealer. I have one very similar...
