  • The "Mikey" Roller

    At the Saratoga show last weekend, I shared with Dirk & Karen Boelman and Carole Rothman a tool one of the Sawdust & Woodchips Woodworking Association members created to facilitate gluing. It is called the Mikey Roller over coat the roller. [You can test roll!] Roll the light coat of glue on the fret-cut surface and then place your fretwork where needed. Once the glue dries, it will peal off the pipe insulation so the roller can be used over and over again. Eventually you will probably have to replace the roller cover but you will have plenty left over from your first cutting!

    Another tipTable Salt to prevent movement! Sprinkle a little table salt onto one or both surfaces to prevent movement when clamping.

    Note ... One of our members also purchased other various sized rollers at a local dollar store and tested gluing with them. It is entirely possible to use them. Remember, the dollar store has many, many things that can be used by every woodworker if you think outside the box!

      I've been doing that for quite sometime. Ironic that my name is Mike as well...

        Thanks for the reminder, Barbara. It's always great to find out new ways of doing things. I'm especially intrigued about the salt--have to try it out one of these days.

        Enjoyed talking with you, and am looking forward to meeting up again next year.

                Shrink wrap systems
                by Linda In Phoenix
                What do you use to shrink wrap, and what do you use it on? Lately in the puzzles section I've seen a couple of you mention shrink wrapping. I've considered such a leap. Even though the basics are all similar from manufacturer to manufacturer, it's still leaves some questions. Maybe others have...

                Brrrr. Glad you got to sell a little. I miss the people interaction. A lot. I hope you found some pretty pieces of wood at the store!

                New tools can definitely open up the scope of what we can do, or how well I'm on the band wagon. Congrats!

                At work (like 15 years ago) we got in some aluminum sheet on pallets 4'x12'. Those pallets were like brand new, without even any discoloring from the metals. I asked our sales rep, and he said I could keep one pallet. I removed all the 4' boards, which measured about 1/2" thick, 4" wide...

                I agree that needs to be saved for a special project. The wood is likely oak based on the grain pattern and the discoloration around the nail.
