    I asked this question a few months ago and got some very good results with 600 grit emery cloth and mineral spirits followed with a coat of paste wax.

      Indiana Saw Man, when my saw was new I used my random orbit sander starting with 220 grit paper, 250, 280 and finished with 320 grit. I then applied a couple coats of Johnson's paste wax. I apply the wax every 2 or 3 months. My table is cast iron, if you have an aluminum table I wouldn't use sand paper on it, maybe some fine steel wool then the wax.

          I recently worked in a large wood shop with everything from large Beam saws to Router tables.We used diffrent spray products and all worked well. Right now I am using a product called JIG-ALOO LUBRICANTthat works well for me.I buy it at our local hardware supply store.Only thing we had to watch for was to check and see that it had no silcone in it. I try to wait untill they have a sale and buy 2or 3 cans.

            Arbor wax is also a good product, it has a 1200 girt pumas in it. Works good using a buffer wheel and its a one step proses. I use it on my turnungs but it works well on all my metal surfaces.

              Bostick is a good product and it's made here in michigan. I think it's the last company we have left in this state, so buy now before they move to mexico.

                Rolf when you say taper from right to left, do you mean thinner near the body and thicker at the end of cloud as on the wing ?
                And on each cloud touching the body ?
                I had already sand some part , will show show soon!

                Thanks

                I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

                Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

                What I do is look at the index of the book on scrollsawer.com and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

                Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!

                I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...
