              I'm also English.



              I used to post on the main UK woodworking forum but they appear to have locked me out, so now my activities are almost exclusively the preserve of their quieter and more genteel rival. That said, I show my face here too from time to time . There's some good stuff on this forum and enough Brits to make trans-Atlantic co-operation feasible.

                              Sorry Geoff3, but it will take pinned blades now - I think they made an alteration to the blade clamps. However, there is a potential problem with the inferior grub screws used to hold the pinless blades in the clamp. At least that is what I found, but Axminster are sending me new clamps and 'better quality' grub screws, so hopefully this will solve the problem for me.

                                Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

                                Now,...

                                It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

                                Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.
