  • NE White Pine

    After years of carving with mostly walnut (gun Stocks) Bass wood (Decoys and Santas) Mahogany (signboards, eagles, etc.) I went out and got a large amount of NE white pine at a good price. Its fun and easy to carve, $1.00/BF cheaper or more at times, than the above mentioned woods. It just does't hold detail very well, you have to be careful around sharp edges or they will break off. But I will be using a lot more of it in the future.
    Visit Easton, Md's Waterfowl Festival November 8th 9th and 10th.

    You might find sugar pine better but the price is also much more. I would think the pine has too much grain to make much detail. What about sap encounters?

The stores I called didn't do that kind of thing, however they directed me to a store here in town that...

      The auto darkening helmet is a must have in my opinion, especially for the home hobby welders. if you are a pro and do it all the time maybe not.

      Couldn't agree more Rolf. The helmet has been a game changer for me.

      Twenty years in electronics retail and here is a quick dirty way to tell the difference:
      a fast blow will only have the wire element. Slow blow almost always has some extra structure that will be left behind after the fuse blows.
      Secondly, there is a series of three letter engraved on one...
