  • Where to get Yellowstone

    I've been using aluminum oxide powder on my strope and think that it does a good job. However, I may be like the pig in a pen, not knowing what it's like to live in a palace. Therefore, I want to get out of my pen and try some of that yellowstone stuff everyone is extolling. Question is where is a good place to get it and can it be obtained in powder form as well as stick form?

    Thanks in advance to everyone who responds.

    Nearly every woodcarving supply has it in their inventory.
    Just check your catalogs or favorite website.
    I have used both Yellowstone and Aluminum Oxide; I prefer Yellowstone; it comes in stick form only.
    Aluminum Oxide powder works very well on the right surface.

        Let me add a vote for this stopping compound. I just got mine this weekend and loaded up a new strop. It works better than any others I've tried. I really like to find things that work; add this one to the list.

          I've tried the aluminum oxide and use it all the time with good results -- though I am not sure it is the best. The various sticks I have used (incluing the yellowstone) have been so hard that it takes forever to get them applied to my strop. Am I doing something wrong? Why is that stuff so hard? The powder seems much better and makes more sense to me????

            I scrape it off with an old pocket knife I keep laying around for things your not supposed to use a knife for. If it's not handy, I'll use the back of my carving knife.

                I've been using a ******* file for that.( Use an ols one ) Just file over a piece of paper till your file fills up. Hit it on the work bench and the stuff falls out of the file. Store it in a 35mm fim cannister and it's ready to use any time.
                Take care,&&Butch &&&&I know there's a carving somewhere in all that extra wood!

                  Dan, your questions are a little tough to answer without knowing a little more about this puzzle you're cutting. That said, here are my thoughts:
                  • First of all, it would be helpful to know the overall size of this puzzle and how many pieces you're thinking of cutting it into. 1/2" BB is pretty

                  Hey Denny---I shot you an email with a few questions. I might just have to dip my toe into the world of Pegas blades vs FD. At least to try! Open minded explorations. Thank you ! Linda

                  Be careful---soon she will be able to outrun you! Remember when fridges lasted for decades?! Glad she's doing well.
