  • Has anyone done one of these?

    What i am looking for is doing a whirlygig. Just a simple one because it would be my first one.
    What would you suggest to do?

    I'd just order a pattern and a kit from somplace like wildwood or cherry tree. Looks to me like they are a snap to build, it's the painting that takes some skill.

      I've always thought they were neat but have been a little apprehensive to put one in the yard for fear the high winds we get in the hollow would have it off the stand and running across the yard. Just did a quick look for any patterns and came up with this site:

      These are pretty basic but mightbe worth a try. They're FREE...

                Looking For Mom and Baby Animal Pattern
                by Quartz43
                I made these simple animal patterns some time ago and gave to my Grandkids. They play with them a lot and have gotten broken so I need to make new ones. Of course, I can not find the pattern and can not remember where I have seen it.

                Can anyone tell me where to get the pattern?

                I have grown to like the Pegas brand MGT blades . for this thickness the blade number varies from brand to brand, The TPI (teeth per inch) is more important the Pegas 5 is 11.3 and the 7 is 10.4 TPI.

                I also the Olson Mach series the #7 has 8 TPI and really works great on thick wood....

                The sales at my market is off the charts. We do Saturday and Sunday but I’m home cutting for next week and Bruce is there for the 3 hours today mostly for pick ups. My entire stock inventory is just about gone! Bruce made 8 pepper grinders. Only 1 left. Angels, birdhouses flying off the trees. Baskets...

                I have a Micro Mark drill press that I use for the tiny holes when doing delicate fretwork. I am happy with that.
                This saw is too limiting especially for any bevel cuts. The blade change process would drive me nuts, and the other concern is blade tension. It is like the ancient deltas, spring...
