  • 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 :-)

              I am guessing that your clamps have probably spread due to usage. I am not aware of any aftermarket clamps that fit your saw. Did you look at ereplacementparts.com to see if they sell clamps for your model? Sorry I could not be of more help.

              I have a craftsman saw. The blade just slips out.

              I put those on my 20" Dewalt a couple years ago. Big improvement from the one Dewalt had....

              We need to know what saw you are using, as they have different clamps.
