    The Dewalt has a coating on it, but even so, smooth it with sandpaper. If the scratch is catching on the wood especially. If it went through the coating the metal under it can start to rust.

    I actually removed the entire coating from my saw and waxed the table.

      I have a 788 and I sanded the table clean to a 400. I polish with paste wax once or twice a year. If you do this too be sure to use silicone free wax.

          BTW, I think a new stand costs around $57 USD on Amazon, but not sure what the cost would be for shipping in the UK.

            I used steel wool to smooth rough spots. Minor scratches will not harm a thing. I started with 0 then went to 00 and finally 0000. A couple times a year I apply paste wax using 0000 steel wool. Make sure to buff VERY well as you do not want to leave any residue.

                What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...

                I remember Russel well. I think he went back to the days of Free4all.

                FYI: I just completed an index of the Charity Ornament book from SSV and Birchbank designed quite a few ornaments.

                Denny, you are correct, his name is Russell. While he may not have been here in years, he pops in at the Village forum from time to time. I just checked and he hasn’t been there since July. I would suggest that you send him a PM perhaps through the Village and see if you get a response.

                I think his name is Russel. I checked and he was last on the forum in 2014. I had a request for one of his patterns. Fortunately I still had a copy. Anyone heard from him?
