  • My best tool!

    I use blue painters tape on my projects and glue the pattern to it. I've tried spray and not really that impressed with it so I've stayed with elmers or titebond but it was hard to get the glue even out in the middle of a pattern so I made me a tool to make the job easier. I took a popsicle stick and cut it in 4 pieces and glued it to another stick, let it dry and now I can push the glue around with no problem.

    Ah Haa a glue rake.....Perhaps a glue squeegee---Nicely done.

      And it helps to explain the Popsicle stains on your shirt, great idea!

        Recycling at its best.

        BTW, I have had OK results spraying both the tape and the pattern back with contact cement, and waiting about a minute. This makes a permanent bond. However you only get one chance to place the pattern.

          I use the spray glue sprayed to the back of a pattern and then placed onto the raw wood to be cut on the Scroll saw or Band saw. Of course it does not come off easy...mineral spirits place on a shop towel and dabbed onto what is left of the pattern and the wood works for me. Might be a bit messy for some but works for me.

            Hmmm....looks like a "disposable razor". Now that is a thought also. Good Idea.

              Neat idea Darrell, the saying around here is, "anything that works" so if this works to make the glue spreading easier. Then your all set.

                Try selling them as kid's toy razors.

                  I'm curious as to why you're not impressed with adhesive spray? Applying glue to the back of your patterns seems to be much more of a hassle and how long does it take to dry so you can start cutting?

                    The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

                    Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

                    The one I do is under a pavilion on County Property, about 60 spaces. They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year. Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...

                    Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

                    Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

                    Now,...

                    It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...
