  • 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.

                I have a VacuFlo system for my house. It might have enough suction for a small table saw but not for the large cabinet makers saw like you have.

                Like the others have said, your Walvac might work fine for smaller tools, especially for a hand sander.

                The VacuFlo actually uses...

                I got my second shot last week here at the Eisenhower Med Center in Palm Springs. I am 82 and in their system and was contacted by them to come in for my first shot. At the completion of that shot I was given my appt. for the second shot.
                Like yours Rolf they were really organized both times....
