  • After 68 blades, 2 1/2 weeks and 10 six-packs--

    Finally finished "Spirit of the Warrior" from the current issue of WWC.
    My saw liked the pattern by Jeff so much it kept eating blades.

    I liked what I saw while burning off the fuzzies with a pencil tourch I decided to do the front that way too. I like it.

                the singeing (or scorching, or whatever) really gives it a rustic feel.
                Very good idea!

                      Great work John.
                      How thick was the wood that you used? Did you use a spiral or flat blade?

                      Thanks for letting us see a picture of your work.

                        I stack cut 4 1/8" Baltic Burch ply & Cherry. I had to use #1 flat end spiral because the 2/0 with the end twists would not hold in the clamps and broke even more. I found that my problem was that I clamped the bottom of the blade at the full bottom of the clamp. This would not allow the clamp to swivel and the added stress caused the blades to break. I now lift up the blade from the bottom clamp a hair before securing the clamp and have no problem. Sometimes I have to snip off a little from the top of the blade to fit but that is OK since I snip at about a 45* angle and helps with finding the bottom feed holes.

                              Beautiful, It is hard to come up with new complements when everyone else beats me to it.
                              I have a lot of respect for anyone that completes one of Jeff's complex designs. It takes a lot of patience and concentration.

                                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....
