  • Re: Tack Rag Rejuvenation

    Maybe we should all email Alan Giagnocavo, President of Fox Chapel.

    Who knows, it might help to do some about this site. It can't take much money to make a few changes, like taking out two scroll saw forums. : and change the colors ???

      Re: Tack Rag Rejuvenation

      Hope someone has the solution on rejuvenating tack rags. I to have left a couple out that could have been used again. Maybe it is one of THOSE moments the younger generation talks about. Forgetfullness!

        Re: Tack Rag Rejuvenation

        A long time ago, the 'admin's' asked us not to post photos on the message board. That's why we started the carvers-r-us gallery. We've had some horrible crashes of this message board and lost most of the old messages for a long time. Some have been recovered and are under the carving category. Most of us post our photos on the gallery since it has them all on one site and you can check all the new photos at one time. Just a suggestion.

          Bill I left this at your other forum too but try this site www.thesuperhandyman.com/tackrag.html Tack rags are only made with turpintine and a little varnish.

            Hi M.D.,
            How do I find that site for pictures? At one time I had a SWW picture site but now they don't let me in again. It tells me that my user name is no good.
            How do I find the gallery site, please help.

                Re: Tack Rag Rejuvenation

                The request for us to not post photos came from the 'admin's' when the message board was bogging down. Photos eat up the bandwidth. I agree with all the points about how useful they are; my point was only repeating what they asked us to do. I'm guessing we'd have a problem if we all started putting photos in our messages, but maybe they've updated the site so that wouldn't be a problem. It probably could be a problem for each user as well, depending on the speed of their connection to the web.

                  My two cents......I'm so far out in the woods I can't get cable or DSL and have a very slow dial-up connection. Photos on a site like this slow it down terribly. During a busy Internet time it becomes so slow, I get no photos at all - just the dreaded red X after a long, long wait. I LOVE seeing photos - I NEED to see photos of other's work but it's disappointing when a few photos slow down the entire message board.

                  It's especially disappointing when useless cartoons slow everything down so much. I sit here an play Free Cell waiting for a cartoon to download.

                      I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....

                      I shrink wrap all my puzzles. It is the best method I have found. I do not use a cardboard backer as some do. I use shrink wrap bags that I get from Amazon or Ebay. 8" x 12" will fit 95% of the puzzles I make.

                      To use the bags you will need a sealer. I have one very similar...

                      I checked out www.ULine.com We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...

                      Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...
