  • glue removal

    can some one tell me how they remove their patterns after without leaving fuzzies from the cloth. I find that when I spray clear coat on my projects that it leaves fine hairs that are noticable. Any suggestions would be a help.
    thanks kes

    Kes, I use Mineral Spirits to remove the pattern and if I feel any glue residue on the wood I use a little more MS and wipe off with a lint free rag. If by chance I notice any fibers after spraying on the finish I use a super fine sanding pad (found at my local hdwe) to touch up those rough spots or knock the fibers off.

      Kes, I sand the wood to 320 or 400 grit then apply lavender masking tape to the wood. Then glue the pattern to the tape. I can leave it on the wood for days and not have a problem removing the tape and pattern.

        I use the same process as Paul except that I substitute fine store bought sand paper with a section of paper bag for the final touch up.

          Hi Rhys - I did finally get the center stand for the bike a couple of weeks back after it was stuck in customs for almost a month. Still have to put it on. The paddock stand will help me do this - Lol!

          Of course you are correct in that the center stand does a similar job but the advantage...

          Did you ever get the centre stand for the bike? A paddock stand does the same thing finally, I guess.

          Very nice Jim. You have a very contemporary look now! Since I do cabinet, Entertainment centers, etc. for my work I see a lot of the same looks being done here in Naples. (i.e. large porcelain tiles, lighted dropped ceiling)

          I do like your use of the space in the door way for additional...

          Well judging from the photos, it looks like it could be a scroll or band saw. (The photos, although a bit blurred, show a few burrs at the cut.) It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...
