    i'm thinking of making some patterns out of old CD's/DVD's. my question is, what type of blade would do the best job in cutting it?

  • #2
    The FD-Polar # 3 or # 5 would be a good blade to use. I also would use the 2" clear package tape, it helps to eliminate that the kerf melt together again.

          It helps to sandwich the CD's between some 1/8" plywood or even some stiff cardboard. This helps prevent the welding together if you are stack cutting.

            Farmers market "survey"
            by Linda In Phoenix
            Curiosity regarding farmers markets.
            I have only looked into a few, and I know that each one has different requirements.
            For those of you who do them, what are 'typical' requirements for yours?

            The nearest one to me that might have potential, and allows crafters requires:...

            Truly a nice display. I'm happy for you! Our nearest 2 farmers markets are still food items only as county and city covid rules are still being applied. Our best nearby one is on county parks department property and they haven't lifted essential business and crowd restrictions yet. But the food...

            Sawstop instructions are some of the best I've ever worked with. Each part comes labeled with a letter to match instructions, hardware in color coded and labeled to match labels and colors in instructions. Full poster size instructions with pics in addition to manual instructions. Could only find one...

            So glad they were supportive, it is a bit disappointing that they had to be. But like any tool manufacturer they have to out source many of the components like the motor. At least the motor is mounted externally for an easy change. How true was the blade to the miter slots etc.
            I like the fact...

            Steve posted it about 2 weeks ago. I just put out a small sampling of items to see what people are interested in. Seems to be everything! I did notice I had more credit charges than last year. But the ones who paid cash were the ones who paid $7 for a gallon of milk and $10 for a loaf of sourdough bread....
