    Make sure your work piece is on a flat surface so the heat doesn't get to the front side. I also use that method to help darken the inside of cuts if the piece isn't to be stained.

      But then someone might mistake it for being laser cut.

          Been there, done that and scorched my workbench...but a good technique especially for very delicate fretwork. I now prefer to use a RT blade for very delicate cuttings or to stack cut with a sacrificial 1/16" bottom layer.

            Hey Guys n Gals.... Long ago when I began....3 years ago.... I DID experiment with using a torch to get rid of the lil fuzzies. THEN....it worked good....BUT....Hey I was introduced to FLYING DUTCHMAN blades.... Been using them for most of last year till now and cut different types of woods and using the FD-UR #3-#5-#7 there is just VERY, VERY Little use for using the Butane torch. Mine is collecting cob webs. LOL Anyway....Danny :+}

                Glad things worked out.

                I just updated my older PC. The hard drive was 500 gb and eight years old. I cloned it to a one TB SSD (solid state drive). Put the cloned drive in and worked perfectly with all my old programs. The computer is now much faster. The new drive was about $100 and...

                Once upon a time ( in the 70's) i attempted bow hunting. I believe the bow had a 45 pound draw. I quickly learned that it was not for me. It takes lot of hard work and practice just to be fair at it. Good is a whole different level. I hope you do better than I did.

                So glad you are back up and running. You will be awed by the speed of your new drive, fresh drivers, and cleaned up files. Spring housecleaning!
