  • A chip in BB

    What do you more experienced sawyers do when a tiny chip pops off the top layer of BB plywood? This has happened to me a couple times after cutting and a little sanding I see where a small chip, maybe 1/8" diameter, disappears next to a cut. I'm referring to just the top layer of the plys.

    Thanks in advance for your advice.

    I mix sawdust with a little slow zap super glue then spray it with accelorater wait about 30 sec then sand or file it to shape Mike but don't wait to long to sand or file it this stuff dries tough as nails

      Daryl, how the heck do you file or sand something as small as 1/8" in diameter?

        very carefully, lol

        lost some skin a few times, and there's nothing that compares to a sandpaper burn.

          Mike, what type of blade are you using when you get a chip? Could also be the plywood, I usually use the Finnish birch plywood. Have never had a problem with chipping on the top, can't say the same for the bottom though. When sanding a cut make sure you sand from the top of the plywood down. I use tiny files and always make sure to file downwards.

            Mike I have a very fine set of jewlers files and I go very slow, unfortunately I broke a piece off of the pattern I am cutting today and its almost dead center so its gona be hard to hide

              I bought a $20 or so set of multi-colored magic markers at a craft store and use them to match colors of occasional chips that come off my puzzles. Often it's quite difficult to tell unless you look very closely.
