  • First Stack Cut

    Did my first stack cut today! Don't know why I haven't before, but, I love it! I notice though there were more "fuzzies"on bottom. I was using a #3 Olson blade on 1/4" baltic burch stacked two deep, at about 90% speed, and blue painters tape under pattern and around edges. Any advice to have less "frizzies"?

    Go to Flying Dutchman reverse or even better FD Ultra Reverse.
    That will eliminate 90% for the rest use a propane torch. Make quick passes and don't over heat the piece and make sure it is laying face down on a flat surface so the heat doesn't go through the fret and darken the front.
    The best place for FD blades is Mikes Workshop. He very reasonably priced and fast. Santa would come in 2nd in a nice guy contest to Mike.
    How was that Mike? LOL

        Oily is right on the reverse or ultra reverse blades. Further, I have heard of people wrapping the entire project in tape (top and bottom) to drop the fuzzies.

        With the ultra blades, I have minimal fuzzy and usually hit them with an emery board to cut them down.

Tony: [I][B] I'm agreement with the flying Dutchman blades , I'd try another blade No. 5 and try slowing down on your cut speed also . Beleive you me - slower is better and you'll find this out . I have cut a lot of 1/8" BB Plywood and cut five at a time and used a no.5 blade and slowed it down and I don't have any frizzies at all .....I don't used the tape at all I do use a Cheap Harbor Freight heat gun to remove my patterns ....Steve Good used one once in a video I saw and I've been hooked ever since .....MB

              Tony,
              When you do not have enough speed you have a tendency of pushing too hard into the blade. This makes the blade grab the wood instead of cutting it. With higher speed you will aslo have better control. Let the blade do the cutting, they say.

                None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

                What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                The bags seem easier on the surface.
                But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

                As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

                I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....
