  • I met Rivari today!

    Drove north today out to Rivari's house, dodged a few moose on or near the road, and met up with a fellow Alaskan scroller. Todd has a wonderful home, beautiful family, and an even cleaner shop than pictured.....

    We swapped stories, shared tips, and even did a little cutting. This guy does some NICE work (w/spirals no less ) I have to tell you, that 26" Hawk is one nice machine! The visit ended too soon as I needed to pick up a kid but I hope to repeat it again.

    THANK YOU Todd, for the warm hospitality and comraderie!

      There is nothing wrong with spiral dust, best kind there is, Means you practiced long enouth to get used to it.

              Thanks Ian. He's adorable.

              Looks like one I picked up yesterday wrapped around 1/2 pound of chocolate.

                    Not MOUSE, a MOOSE. Of course, Polar Bears are always welcome too.

                    I have to find me one of those Enormoose. He's hilarious.

                      I tell you what folks, this forum is a great asset but there is nothing like having a fellow scroller visit in person and talented one at that to bounce ideas and thoughts off of. Barry is gave me some sound pointers and re-motivated me, hell the visit just plain made my day. I was lucky or unlucky enough depending how you look at it that he brought some exotic woods out as he is cleaning shop for his impending move (sadly). I had never seen such woods in person and it was great to have someone explain the background and uses for each.

                      Yeah he is a flat blader, he even forced me to try cutting some lines with one which was a laughable experience though I do see the need to learn and know both. What is sad is that I started out with them and did just fine but now I look like a drunk trying to cut with one.

                      For what it is worth I did catch him trying to load my Hawk G4 in his truck when I wasn't watching so for those in Minnesota (his future home) hide your Hawks until he gets his own.

                      Barry I had a blast and look forward to future exchanges, you got some great info and experiences that I better take advantage of quick.

                        Yep, got me on that one, but looks like you haven't noticed the missing bandsaw yet

                        We do need to do that again. There's a state and fed holiday coming up soon..... Now if I can just get a running saw......(but thats an update for a different thread)

                          So after much debating, I bought a Sawstop table saw--the 36" contractor version, and now have a roll-your-eyes story too.
                          I got a few discounts from my favorite hardwood store for buying from them. Yay!

Bruce ran the sander for the tech and after checking a few things, it was determined it’s the bushing, probably. They are going to send a bushing for Bruce to replace it. If he has a problem replacing...

                          Bruce lets it soak in on the cardholders, takes 24 hrs. I let everything drip for a few minutes then wipe excess off. 50/50 takes longer to dry than 40/60. I usually move everything upstairs and turn the ceiling fan on to to help it soak in. This finish takes 3-4 days to dry enough to take to shows....
