  • finally got a saw now ready to make sawdust

    Hi all, I finally went out and bought my new saw and I did get the Craftsman model 21609, it is an 18 inch with foot pedal, light and blower, takes pinned and pinless blades. THe best part of this is I waited when they put them on clearnace and checked each week on the price and yesterday when I looked I found it had been dropped all the way to 89.00.....if anyone knows Sears once they start lowering a price if you give it time it will get to be a steal, I personally watched the price go from 199 to 169 to 159 to 139 to 119 then to the final price of 89. This regularly sells for 199.99 so figuring the 110 dollar price drop I had to get it. wish me luck on learning everything I need to learn and as soon as I complete my first project I will post for you critique.

    Cool! Isnt it exciting to land a good deal? Be sure you get some good blades, and mount your saw pretty rigid to minimumize (its a word to me evie!!!) the vibration. Go make some dust, and show us what you come up with. Dale

      That's an offer not to be refused. At that price you can't make a mistake.

      Like Dale said, get good blades (Pegas, Flying Dutchman, Olson, to name a few) They make a world of difference.

      And don't forget to post your results, and to ask any questions you may have: the only stupid question is the one you didn't ask .

      And keep the first piece you make, that the best advice they game me here when I started, so you can see your progress... And there will be some faster than you think

        First off how thick is the board you cut?
        When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
        that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
        for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

        I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

        Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.

        Looking at the image, I would sand down the clouds a bit on the left (as you're looking at it) make it look like the clouds on the right are the closest to you. Then with the clouds to the left being less pronounced it will make it look more like he is sitting on them. Humorous design choice...

        I would have to agree that I've not personally made many designs from the magazine, as I have progressed to making most of my own designs. However, I do enjoy some of the reviews and other articles---as well as checking out techniques of others. I debated as well, but decided to renew. Now I just...
