  • 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 IT.........you 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

                  Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

                  We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.

                  What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
