  • Power Carving burr cleaner

    Hey all you power carvers, what do you use to clean the burned on wood from your carving bits? Some one told me to use oven cleaner, but it didn't do a very good job. ???

        I soak them in denatured alcohol for 20-30 minutes and then use a small brass brush. Works pretty good.

            I have several bowls that I have turned a few are natural edge or have distorted a bit over time and I have not been able to finish the bottoms to my satisfaction.
            I have had a vacuum chuck for many years but getting the bowl centered is always a challenge. So I bought this setup https://ww...

Maybe for the oversize patterns have an additional scaled copy to fit a standard...

            Reply to Source for 5-Ply poplar plywood?
            by millwab
            I’ve migrated to poplar from Baltic birch for my puzzles in part because it’s easier to cut and doesn’t wear out blades as quickly as the BB does.
