  • 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.

    I'm no expert but on a turning forum i visit i've heard of people using wax or even gloss paint to coat the ends of logs etc.

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

            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.

            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?

            Have you tried to rough up the thumb screws tips? How old are the blade clamps? may be time to replaced them.
