  • Wood Properties

    Every once in awhile I see a post asking about the workability of certain wood species. I'm new to woodworking and would like the same answers. I found a site that has just that kind of info. Interested in the properties of Hickory? You'll find it at this site.

        Got it too. Looks like a good reference. Missing Bubinga, though, I noticed.

          Thats a good one. Remember, is your friend! Type the name of the wood and lumber, hit enter and BAM... For example, Bubinga lumber gets you to:

            Twenty years in electronics retail and here is a quick dirty way to tell the difference:
            a fast blow will only have the wire element. Slow blow almost always has some extra structure that will be left behind after the fuse blows.
            Secondly, there is a series of three letter engraved on one...

            They look like David Spielmann's Designs to me. I will check my library this evening, but I bet you already that they are from one of his pattern books.

            Thanks all - you folks do wonders for my ego with your comments and importantly fire me up to keep trying new things

            Scott - once this Covid situation has passed I'll definitely be heading up to NC. I'm tentatively thinking late spring/early summer next year. I am not sure just what pointers...

            I found this information on fuses in general.
