    What size blades do you use for portraits? I've been using spirals, but want to try flat blades to see the difference in the cuts.

    Check out the Sticky titled "owl progress" I have a couple of pictures posted there with me using the micro-jet burning the fuzzies off. http://www.scrollsawer.com/forum/inf...nge/7779-4.htm
    OOOooohh Baby, 1200 degrees F... hah, better be real careful with this thing. (mine was 19.95, but if it works and does the job right with more speed than a file, im happy with it...)

    OK... wrap it with black electrical tape and then finish it off with duct tape. Hopefully you have more than 6 hairs on your chest.

    Aw...come on Todd...you don't consider your cute kids a "tool" for keeping the shop clean <GRIN>

    My wife referred to my favorite carving knife as "cute" once...I promptly cut myself with it...so it's no longer my favorite.

    BTW...i've had to move on to leg hair...

    Hey Caveman, I used to use one of those torches too. Then I saw Bill's "Owl Progress" thread and thought the one he had was so darned cute, I just had to have one. It certainly does give you more control, especially when you have just 1 or 2 little hairs you missed the first time around.

    I don't think you have anything to be concerned with unless you soak it in lighter fluid first. Once you've done it, you'll see what I mean.

    Thanks abunch fellas... I guess my next concern would be (types of wood being more flamable than another?) like the exotic stuff, any of that flammable?

    Picked one up today at Home Depot. Bernzomatic #ST200T = $9.97 and the butane refill bottle was $2.97. Comes with micro torch tip, soldering tip and what they call the 'hot blower'. Nice little unit.

    No, not a flameless lighter. It is a small refillable butane lighter with an adjustable flame. I'll check the brand of mine tomorrow and get back to you.

    Be sure to do it before finishing ! Also practice some on less-than-perfect pieces or some scrap . It doesn't take long at all to get the hang of it
    Like those flameless lighters?

    I'm tring to think of the ones that aren't a hefty price, work upside down and aren't like a welders torch or something (don't have the space, nor the cash to get one of these...) I tried using one of those long butane lighters and its not working out the best for me and I've used alot of the butane up... I know a regular lighter is just a bad idea all around (I'd like to keep my fingers, not burn them off)
