  • Turned fail into win

    The other evening my wife and I were sitting outside talking and having a cool drink. She mentioned the days getting longer and just as I was about to launch into an explanation of the summer solstice I remembered that we got married on that day. It was our anniversary and she had said nothing all day. I sheepishly told her "Happy Anniversary" and she looked at me blankly. I could tell that she too had forgotten by the look on her face. I was one up!
    She went to the fence to talk to the neighbor and I went to the shop where I quickly cut a wordart fridge magnet that said "I love you". When she came back in I gave it to her. Now I was two up.
    This made me think of an idea. I'll make up several of these and sell them as Husband Survival Packs. Buy it now and put it away for an emergency. When you need a fast gift but have forgotten the occasion you're prepared. ha ha ha

                Only down side with your idea is 95% of craft fair shoppers are women so marketing to men won't cut it. Just my 2 cents.

                  We need to know what saw you are using, as they have different clamps.

                  When a blade slips out, the tendency is to tighten it more. Make sure you haven't over-tightened the clamp forcing the sides apart. Most OEM clamps are made from soft aluminum so once it starts they will continue spreading and it will be near-impossible to keep the blades in place.

                  I've...

                  Blade slippage is a function of the blade clamp holder and or the set screw and thumb screw with swivel.

                  Tricia what saw do you have? Does the blade slip or it just won’t tighten?
