  • Name Plate

    Made this for my son, who got promoted into a management position - complete with a real office that has a door. So I decided to make him a name plate. Used MS Word with TEAM SPIRIT truetype font. You can download it for free. You have to fool around with it a little since it has an annoying underline that gets in the way a little. So play with the kerning and spacing to get the capitals and lower case to line up. But it is a real nice script to cut. The name is walnut that I harvested and dried in my basement. The back is sassafras. Finished with BLO and some wax. Turned out pretty nice.

      Good job. I do a few nameplates and I've used Teamspirit a few times too, but I thank you for yet another take on the theme.

      I hope he knows he has a great dad.

                by handibunny
                It doesn’t matter whether the saw table tilts or the saw arm tilts. Either can be used for any project cut at an angle, and there’s a learning curve for each.

                I actually prefer the tilting table because the blade remains vertical. I find that at really steep angles, like 40 or 45 degrees,...

                This is the tapestry I found in the cedar chest. We can’t identify where the pictures are from. Two among many. I also forgot to mention dad was also in the army Fife and Drum Corps and also played with a big band when he was discharged. Have to find that info....

                What a morning. The therapists were quite pleased with what he could do. He took the wrap off today and he can walk with the walker with very little pain. It’s getting the leg completely straight that is hard to do. It’s when his brother stopped in that things went off rails. Rolf, we are talking...

                If you are referring to 3D Compound cutting, the blade is 90 degrees to the table and not tilted. I use the tilting head for things like inlays and Carole's bowls. If you want a tilting arm, be sure it is rack and pinion. Look at other features that may fit your needs. As a Pegas dealer, I can help...

                I think the foot release was an option. I don’t see the pulley for it on the back of yours. Although it may have been removed. It is a very simple concept, it’s a cable attached to the back of the saw to release the arm
