  • Ooooops!

    I should have held on a bit tighter when using the flex drum sander. You know how you need to sand just a "tad" bit more? Ole "Bessy" made it over the moon alright, but sure did not stand a chance with the landing! (cement garage floor)


    Have to just smile and move on.

    Sorry for the accident. That is why I hand sand mine after they are cut

      I've done that a few times, makes you sick.

        Sweeeeeet cut, sorry about your oooops, I did that recently trying to sand a wooden comb I cut. Chuck it up to "I won't try that again".

                I thought I was the only one that made that type of mistake. Looks great though even though in pieces.

                    Heart breaking, but hope a lesson learned. I think most of us have been there with you.

                      Been there Danny.

                      I did it twice last winter with the same piece, it was a Steve Good pattern for that story cross. Cut it, sanded it, dropped it, smashed, cut it again, sanded it, dropped it ....

                      Still pees me off, but my fingers were so cold. This year I've insulated the workshop and installed a wood burner.

                      All the best on the next one

                        I'm so glad I've never done something like that.....LOL It is aggravating though. Sorry you have to start over.

                          Sorry Danny, after all that work. Thanks for the post. We all tend to forget sometimes. Never hurts to have a reminder. Styrk1

                            Danny, we have all been there, done that ! That wood grain is very brittle when it comes to fine cutting & sanding. Sometimes it pop's & when you piece it back together, it fits so tight, you can't tell it was broken. Try it, it may work for you. Good Luck

                              Hey Danny, I put those ooops on a shelf in the shop so I look at them everyday. They are there to remind me not to do that again!

                                Rolf, smaller bowl-cutting angles, 30˚ or less, usually don't present a problem either with vibration or for cutting into the table. It's when you get into the 40˚ and 45˚ range that things get dicey for both. (The Seyco saw doesn't even cut bevels greater than 35˚ or so!) If you add even a slight...

                                I've done some bevel cutting on my EX-21 as well and also have not experienced any added vibration, nor have I cut into the table. Perhaps I haven't cut at a steep enough angle, but the existing blade hole has been sufficient. I do despise the useless vacuum holes, but I've learned to live with them...

                                Carole Your hole size was a concern when I purchased the Pegas Replacement Table for my EX21, because I had cut into the side of hole on the original table, The damage I did to the old table was due to the blade adjustments were not in the center of blade holders. So far that has not been an issue...

                                That is an interesting point Carole. I have done some bevel cutting on the EX and can't say that I have experienced an increase in vibration or any problems with following the lines. I know when I cut one of your bowl designs on my Hawk I really had to concentrate on not pushing down hill....
