  • fire is a bummer

    Wondering if I replace my Ecalibur, after the fire that ate Bastrop, Texas used my house for a snack, with a Hawk, Hegner or DeWalt. Will be a while before I have a place where I can use one. So your thoughts folks. You have a chance to completely start over from the ground up, literally.

    Keep it the same or make a lot of changes? Where I'm building my new house there is a ten foot hieght limit, and I will have a big backyard. So build a woodworking shed under ten feet or add a lot of outlets to the garage?

    Thanks for everything.

    Sorry to hear of your tragic loss. I'd get another ex myself...Who needs a shop over 10 feet tall anyway? Make a 3 foot step down below ground...sunken shop would be cooler anyway.

        Sorry for your loss. I'm with the others on the Ex.

        Let us know which way you go.

        Good luck

            I have the EX, a DeWalt Type I and a Hawk 220VS. The DeWalt has the best tension and the EX is the best saw. Your mileage and results may vary.

              Hate to hear that you were hit by the monstrous fire in Bastrop! At the same time my sister was evacuated from that tr-county fire down near Magnolia. This has been a really bad year for wildfires in Texas. Best of luck rebuilding & stick with an Ex 21!

                I would suggest that you stick with the EX, I just got mine a couple of months ago and I can't ever imagine ever owning another brand again.

                    Thank you for all the kind words and I'll stay with the EX. Now just need to get one and rebuild my pattern and woodworking library.

                      So sorry for your losses.....I know Texas has had a rough time.....And God forbid everything I have burn down....but if I had to rebuild I would prefer complete separate shop from the garage and I would have to have a room inside the new shop for finish work with water access, heating and cooling and to have that away from the "dirty" areas.
                      If I paint now I have to do it in the house and I would prefer not to do that. It messes up the house.
                      Keep it outside until it's completed is my ideal way of doing this woodworking and painting hobby.

                        I tried a house vac once for a dust collector. It was prone to clogging the lines and when I tried to put a cyclone can on it the vacuum collapsed the garbage can.

                        I found this pattern in Steves catalog and freehanded a vase form. This one may appeal to the folks that bought the butterfly vase.

                        Sorry took so long to answer. The brown vase I added butterfly instead of doing wood burning. Wanted to keep them so they would appeal to several people. I sold all of them to a flower shop....

My wife works for the school district, so she may be eligible in the next phase. President Biden says that supply will be sufficient for all US adults by end of May. I'm hoping that proves...
