  • Had to use blade bacwards

    This order required me to use the blade backwards because the sign was to long for my table depth. The first letter "C" and some of the tail of the chick demanded this change. Glad I read about this in an old Spielman news letter.

            NICE ! I must remeber that tip, would using a spirle blade work instead of using the blade backwards?

              Spiral would work but it has a tendency to follow the grain and with the 1/2" thick cedar I didn't want to chance it.
              I use spiral on portraits with plywood.

                I love that sign! Would you mind if I plagiarised it?

                Cutting backwards can be quite a challenge if you forget that the blade bias is reversed !

                  Understandable for your baskets Betty, but in my experience 1/4” solid wood for puzzles tends to not hold up very well. Especially the small locks....

                  Should read planer Died yesterday. But Bruce got out his instruction book and google and got it apart. Needs new belt, plastic cover and pulley gear. Ordered from eBay and should have by Monday. Of course all work on dough boards stopped. $55 is much cheaper than a new planer. Oh well, on to the next...

                  My customers won’t buy anything cut from plywood. I’ve spoiled them. I use poplar for all my kid puzzles. With Bruce volunteering at the County Park antique sawmill, I have an endless supply of poplar. My current batch is green and white striped. I make cases for all my puzzles and back them with...

                  I have enough of that. I bought 3 sheets of 1/8 and 1/4 a few months back. Bruce was at the sawmill yesterday and the superintendent of the Park told them they were getting over 50 oak trees from various county parks. The trees have sort of bug that is killing them . They will be quarantining them in...
