  • Klingspor Extravaganza

    The annual Klingspor Extravaganza is another victim of COVID. This would have been their 20th year doing that and I have been doing demos in more than half through my club NC Woodworkers. But they are not throwing in the towel. They are going to try and do a virtual show. Here is the link:

    For the record I have no connections to Klingspor outside of doing demos at some of their events.

    Virtual demos just aren't the same. I love doing demos in person and being able to interact with people and answer their questions on the spot. It's sad and I truly miss it. The Covid virus has infected businesses as much as people. Hunting for a new planer as well as trying to get some maintenance parts for other equipment is coming up with "out of stock" and "backorder" issues blamed on Covid killing inventories. Several places have told me woodworking equipment and supplies have been selling out far faster then they can get them in ever since Covid started because people were staying home. In the long run though, maybe this will be a shot in the arm to get more people back into woodworking. That would be cool! Thank you for sharing your link.

      As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

      I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....

      I shrink wrap all my puzzles. It is the best method I have found. I do not use a cardboard backer as some do. I use shrink wrap bags that I get from Amazon or Ebay. 8" x 12" will fit 95% of the puzzles I make.

      To use the bags you will need a sealer. I have one very similar...
