  • My first Toy

    This is my first toy car. I got the pattern from one of the Sawdust issues, published by S.A.W. I enlarged it because I had some wheels laying around that someone gave me. I turned them down to square them off and reduce the diameter to 1.5 inches.
    The body is solid pine 2" thick the fenders Hoduran mahogany (all scraps)
    I counter bored the wheels so that the axels would be recessed a bit.
    The car is 7"L x 3"W x 3" Tall.
    Finished with Bartley Gell varnish.

            That's really neat Rolf, and you make it sound so simple. It's very convincing.

              Great toy and I agree with Carl. Putting those details into words may give someone else a flash of brilliance. Thanks for sharing.

                          WOW! Now I want to cover my truck in wood, don't think it will look nearly as good as your car though.

                          Great work, and again, thanks for the details.

                              I will have to put a semi in the works for you.

                                Rolf, smaller bowl-cutting angles, 30˚ or less, usually don't present a problem either with vibration or for cutting into the table. It's when you get into the 40˚ and 45˚ range that things get dicey for both. (The Seyco saw doesn't even cut bevels greater than 35˚ or so!) If you add even a slight...

                                I've done some bevel cutting on my EX-21 as well and also have not experienced any added vibration, nor have I cut into the table. Perhaps I haven't cut at a steep enough angle, but the existing blade hole has been sufficient. I do despise the useless vacuum holes, but I've learned to live with them...

                                Carole Your hole size was a concern when I purchased the Pegas Replacement Table for my EX21, because I had cut into the side of hole on the original table, The damage I did to the old table was due to the blade adjustments were not in the center of blade holders. So far that has not been an issue...

                                That is an interesting point Carole. I have done some bevel cutting on the EX and can't say that I have experienced an increase in vibration or any problems with following the lines. I know when I cut one of your bowl designs on my Hawk I really had to concentrate on not pushing down hill....
