  • For my Son

    Well my son is into this ting called GEO Caching. It is where you go out and find a GEO Cache using a GPS that other people have hidden. Any way he wanted to set up his own Cache and I told him I would make a first find gift for him and made 2 sets of Geo Cache coasters, a set for him to keep and a set to place in his cache which he designed with a borrowers (the movie) theme. I really like the way they came out specially since they were the first coasters I have ever made. I used cork for the backing. If you have any suggestions please let me know. Comments always welcome.

    Those are really nice! I took my niece and nephew geocaching last summer and never found anything so nice. Usually just plastic toys, seashells and the like. I never was the first finder of a stash though. I have often thought it would be cool to make wooden coins to leave along with the keychains/toys we usually put in.

      I am thinking about what to make for the next cache he starts. I don't know what I am going to do yet but I might have to look into the wooden coin idea.

        Rolf, smaller bowl-cutting angles, 30˚ or less, usually don't present a problem either with vibration or for cutting into the table. It's when you get into the 40˚ and 45˚ range that things get dicey for both. (The Seyco saw doesn't even cut bevels greater than 35˚ or so!) If you add even a slight...

        I've done some bevel cutting on my EX-21 as well and also have not experienced any added vibration, nor have I cut into the table. Perhaps I haven't cut at a steep enough angle, but the existing blade hole has been sufficient. I do despise the useless vacuum holes, but I've learned to live with them...

        Carole Your hole size was a concern when I purchased the Pegas Replacement Table for my EX21, because I had cut into the side of hole on the original table, The damage I did to the old table was due to the blade adjustments were not in the center of blade holders. So far that has not been an issue...

        That is an interesting point Carole. I have done some bevel cutting on the EX and can't say that I have experienced an increase in vibration or any problems with following the lines. I know when I cut one of your bowl designs on my Hawk I really had to concentrate on not pushing down hill....

        Just a word of caution about the size of the blade hole. When I used a DeWalt years ago in the infamous community woodshop, and also with my more recent experiences with the Jet, if you do much bevel cutting at a steep angle, you will cut into the table. That's why inserts have the slot that can be...
