  • This is what happens when you inhale too much sawdust

    I just finished this one up. I'm pretty happy with the way that it turned out but I do have to admit that sometimes I go a little overboard with my patterns. It's entitled "Odd Couple" and is cut at 11 X 14. It took me 20 1/2 hours to do the 829 cuts involved and about 44 blades or so.

    Awesome job!!! The detail brings out the slightest expression.

    But 829 internal cuts? Whats that work out to......6 cents a piece??? You are twisted my friend, twisted...... at least it's in a good way!

        Awesome and stunning to say the least! I'd say you have every reason to be proud! The paitence and persistance to finish a project like this speaks volumes!

                          Is that a JZ pattern? Looks like it.

                          When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

                                At the time I thought "Ah, spit!" (or words like that) and just threw the blade in the garbage. It was the #5 size blade. I suspect it would cost more to have it done than the cost of a new blade. The owners manual is not very helpful, the wording is awkward, having been 'translated' into...

                                The brazing process doesn't look too bad. I have seen the welders built into the industrial bandsaws, so out of curiosity, I looked that up and that process is pretty cool to watch also, though trying that on something this small would probably light the whole thing up....

                                Jo, I did a bit of research on the web, and there are lots of videos of people silver soldering broken blades. In hindsight I remember I had made a jig eons ago to do just that, when I still had a small Craftsman bench top three wheeler....
