  • Put a cork [s]in[/s] on it ;)

    I agree with the fact that most minor cuts happen while reaching for a tool or putting one away.

    (The serious cuts can happen at any time, but usually when you are not wearing your carving glove.)

    That's one reason why I put corks on the end of my tools. The other reason is it helps keep them from getting nicks in the cutting edge.
    I have began using the new artifical corks; they are made from a resin that grips the tools better than real cork.

    If you have a favorite resturant, (not Taco Bell) you can ask them to save the wine corks for you. Bags of corks can sometimes be found in second-hand stores, or you could start a collection yourself if you are real thirsty.

    I've had good luck with clear plastic hose. It's available at hardware stores for about a buck or so a foot. Comes in several sizes.
    Take care,&&Butch &&&&I know there's a carving somewhere in all that extra wood!

      If you just smack them a time or two on the edge with a hammer, they don't cut as bad.. :

        Hey Rick do you get the on gallon size jug for the wider knives? I told my wife that I got some great advice from a professional carver and to head to the store for my favorite grape....I don't think she is buying this one...thirty-two bottles of wine.
        Cheers

          I'm imagining Hi Ho's and Ric's wives getting together, getting sloshed on the wine, and bopping both guys in the head with that hammer :-)

              Our feed belt keeps moving but Bruce did adjust it the other day when I was done and this is the first time I’ve used it. It kept getting louder so I bet that’s it or it just isn’t tight. Will check it in the morning. Thanks.

              Betty is the feed belt centered? Do you hear it when the drum is spinning or when just the feed belt is on?
              I have had the sanding belt stretch, they do that over time, and there was enough hanging out to just kiss the table.

              I got mine the other day. Also noticed a dearth of Christmas themed projects. I don't recall seeing much Christmas stuff in the Fall issue either. I look forward to new ornament ideas, but those were lacking this year.

              I do understand some of the constraints in publishing a magazine these...

              Well, this topic can present a lot of opinions and options. First, if you are seriously considering helical cutting heads, would you take the next step and upgrade to a stationary, floor model planer? Perhaps even a used one. I don't know how much space you have and what your shop power options are,...

              Our super max has been making a noise that sounds like paper caught but we can’t pinpoint anything. Cleaned what we could, Bruce used dry lubricant, which sounds like an oxymoron to me, and still makes the noise. Started quietly now is louder. Any suggestions before we call for warranty work? I’m...
