  • Found This In The Firewood Pile

    Just finished the Country Cottage Grandfather lock from Dirk Boelman's plans. White oak and black walnut with the top ornament from bloodwood. Every piece is 3/4" thick. Quartz movement with progressive Westminster chimes and a seperate pendulum drive unit. Top three sections have an access door in the rear. Finish is 3 coats of Waterlox Finish And Sealer, with a 4th coat of Waterlox Satin. 1st coat brushed, 2nd coat sprayed, 3rd and 4th coats brushed, and sanded with 400 grit after 3rd coat. Has a hand rubbed appearance. Thumbs up to Waterlox. Stands close to 6 1/2' tall. The oak is from cutoffs from a dry kiln that gave them away for firewood. And some of it was.

                          Thank you for all the kind words. I started working on it in Feb. Mainly on the weekends because I'm still driving over the road. All the pieces are 3/4". Most of my lumber comes from the sawmill and I sticker and dry it. Happy sawdusting.

                                by Bill Wilson
                                I've owned both tilting table and tilting head saws. My current saw is an EX-21 (pre-Chinese made version) with the tilting head. I have to say that for beveled cuts, I much prefer the EX over my previous tilting table saws (Craftsman and Dewalt). I think a lot of it is the rack & pinion angle...

                                Just a random annoyance . . . . Anyone get frustrated by the Harbor Freight ads that say no exclusions, then you see the details and see "for items under $20", or worse yet, in super small print, "Can not be used for: Atlas, Bauer, Central Machinery, CoverPro, Hercules, Predator, compressors,...

                                And no annoying dust collection holes, for little pieces to catch on, right?

                                Since tilt arm style saws are my personal favorite . . . I can criticize it right? I hate the freaking dust collection mechanism on my King, and prefer the table on the older Green EX that didn't have that....

                                I've been creating patterns for about 6 years, but I still haven't had any Easter patterns. And here is my first one - Easter Bunny. I plan to make more this year.
