        Jet Saw

        I agree, I think the Jet saw would be your best choice.

        I have had the contracter version (think that is the same number you have listed) for over 10 years and cut a lot of things with it.

        As long as you set it up good, and keep a good blade in it you should have no problems with cutting anything.

        The Blade is a big part of it and I have tried a lot of different makes, and found the mid to high end range blade will last you a long time. I use a CMT 50 tooth blade for a general all around blade and found it to cut as good as the same in the Forrest WWII blades or other brands. (save your money on the Forrest) they give you a guarantee that if you don't like it send it back, and I sent it and samples of my cuts back to them, and showed them that for 1/2 the price I could get as good of a cut, then they come up with the story that since I didn't buy it direct from them, I had to pay restocking fee and such, so that is just my story on Forrest blades.

        Go with the Jet, I don't think you will go wrong, and with the 1 1/2 HP motor you should have enough power to cut most things.

          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.

          What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
          The bags seem easier on the surface.
          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.

          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...
