  • Howdy Folks


    I found this place from a simple search for wooden handcuffs(I found Pop's). That's nice of him to share. Like helluvawreck, I also hail from LumberJocks. This site looks good too.

    I've done various woodworking all my life. I began doing some "Fine woodworking" (Spoken with my best "nose up in the air" accent) about 5 years ago. I've done a little scrollwork here and there. I find myself going to that machine more and more now. I've just gotten word that I can join a group of woodworkers to sell in an Art Gallery and I thought I'd like some of that to be scrollwork. I'm probably at the upper end of the Beginner level. Maybe starting in the Intermediate.

    I teach woodworking at WoodCraft in Springfield(VA). I teach Fundamentals, Boxes, Shaving Horse, Hand Cut Dovetails, and am adding more. I like learning new techniques. I'm more of a power tool guy, not much on hand tools.

    After a few questions maybe I'll be able to have some work to show for it. I look forward to browsing around and getting to know you folks.

              Rolf, smaller bowl-cutting angles, 30˚ or less, usually don't present a problem either with vibration or for cutting into the table. It's when you get into the 40˚ and 45˚ range that things get dicey for both. (The Seyco saw doesn't even cut bevels greater than 35˚ or so!) If you add even a slight...

              I've done some bevel cutting on my EX-21 as well and also have not experienced any added vibration, nor have I cut into the table. Perhaps I haven't cut at a steep enough angle, but the existing blade hole has been sufficient. I do despise the useless vacuum holes, but I've learned to live with them...

              Carole Your hole size was a concern when I purchased the Pegas Replacement Table for my EX21, because I had cut into the side of hole on the original table, The damage I did to the old table was due to the blade adjustments were not in the center of blade holders. So far that has not been an issue...

              That is an interesting point Carole. I have done some bevel cutting on the EX and can't say that I have experienced an increase in vibration or any problems with following the lines. I know when I cut one of your bowl designs on my Hawk I really had to concentrate on not pushing down hill....

              Just a word of caution about the size of the blade hole. When I used a DeWalt years ago in the infamous community woodshop, and also with my more recent experiences with the Jet, if you do much bevel cutting at a steep angle, you will cut into the table. That's why inserts have the slot that can be...
