      Nice cutting on the chess set. What wood did you use and did you paint or stain it?

            Very nice now you know he is going to ask for a box that has a board to play chess on for the pieces right? Great job on the pieces. Thanks for sharing it with us.

                        Nice cutting. Just a suggestion - next time you photograph them turn one of the knights sideways so we can see what both views look like. Hard to tell from front/back views what they look like.

                          Thanks for all the nice comments. This set was cut from some cheap pine and then i spray painted it and then varnished it. It took me about four months in my spare time.

                          Thanks again for all the nice comments

                              VERY NICE set! I don't know how to play chess, but maybe I should make a set and learn. Those are really good looking pieces.

                                The lack of service facilities is an industry wide problem not just in the SS world. To find tech savvy factory support is rare.
                                I am fortunate that I can fix most anything myself. I don't have a Pegas saw or I would dig into one. The big problem is most tools like Pegas are sold by distributors...

                                As a Pegas dealer, I think I will chime in on this thread. It was a huge mistake to let Bob Duncan go, but I don’t know the circumstances. I Had a customer with a tension lever problem. I sent a new lever, but there was a question on how to replace it. They passed my email on to someone and he...

                                The receptacle on the Festool dust collector can be a little particular about the things plugged into it. If the prongs do not fit tightly it sometimes does not work - bend them out very slightly and you may be good to go. I have one tool that has that problem.
