    Hello All,
    I'm a new member from South Florida with a long wood history, but new to scrollsawing. I thought it was time to do somthing different in the shop, so I've jumped into puzzles on the scrollsaw. Most questions I've had have been answered by trial and error except for one.

    Maybe someone can point me in the right direction. Having never had the occasion to use a mop sander, I am not aware of the advantage-disadvantage between a double and single mop setup except for the obvious thickness. Any opinions?

    If I may offer a suggestion. Start another thread in tools & blades or in finishing and you will get more responses to your question. I also rearranged your question so it might stand out and get more responses here.

      I've been using the bags from Amazon and a heat gun my wife bought when she was a preschool teacher. Unless you are wrapping of small parts, you don't need a sealer. Just fold it over and hold it with a small piece of scotch tape on the back. After you shrink it it's sealed enough to keep everything...

      My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

      None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

      But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

      Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.
