      That's 1/2inch oak Kevin but I'm sure the patterns would work with other things - especially framed - or on a backer of a contrasting wood.

          Ian you are making me very jealous with all these dragons. You've checked my profile...and yes I am the year of the rat but have always had a love of dragons.

              When a blade slips out, the tendency is to tighten it more. Make sure you haven't over-tightened the clamp forcing the sides apart. Most OEM clamps are made from soft aluminum so once it starts they will continue spreading and it will be near-impossible to keep the blades in place.

              Tricia what saw do you have? Does the blade slip or it just won’t tighten?

              Have you tried to rough up the thumb screws tips? How old are the blade clamps? may be time to replaced them.
