        Very impressive.

            That is so great. I love the graining, but especially I love the door hinges-they are so tiny! And the knobs on the bumper, lol

              You have done yourself proud.

              I specially like the way you lined up the grain on the body panels.
              The fender lights came out nice.

              One constructive comment: the front wheel's whitewall makes it look like a target center... the proportions are off.
              The rear wheel is fine, it's just the front one.

              Otherwise, AWESOME job, well worth the time you have invested in it.

              DW788. -Have fun in the shop or it isn't a hobby anymore.

                            You should be PROUD of that piece, Trout. Perfect execution of that old rig turning a hard left! I think you cut it in Dale's shop - thats why yours is clean and his is a pigst....., er, not so clean

                                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....
