  • Looking For---

    I am looking for a product called PEG. It is used to preserve fresh cut wood to prevent cracking. IE: slab from a tree. The last time I saw it was in a woodworking mag. about 20 years ago.

      Knothead - Rockler has Polyethylene Glycol (PEG) which is a green wood stabilizer. They also have pentacryl another preservative.

            Hi Rhys - I did finally get the center stand for the bike a couple of weeks back after it was stuck in customs for almost a month. Still have to put it on. The paddock stand will help me do this - Lol!

            Of course you are correct in that the center stand does a similar job but the advantage...

            Did you ever get the centre stand for the bike? A paddock stand does the same thing finally, I guess.

It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...
