  • Inlay narrow or pointed parts

    How do I inlay narrow parts, especially parts comming to sharp point? Like the interior cuts on this leaf and flower. The leaf will be about 5" long...for perspective.

    Here's better picture. My point is how do I turn at the point? Or, do I tilt other way to do other side? Or...?

      Ok, first, no you can't come at it from the other way.
      It takes a bit of practice, but after a while it becomes second nature. (I'm assuming that we're going off the tutrial and challenge...Just to get our ducks in a row...pun intended). When you're making a counter-clockwise turn, you can turn pretty sharp turns rather easily, however, if you're making a clockwise turn, it takes a little more tact. You'll need to learn to pull back on the wood as you turn, as if you're trying to pull the back of the blade into the corner, (which essentially just what you're doing).

      If you did the duck inlay, you've gotten a taste of turns in each direction...

        Jim,
        I did not do the duck inlay but, I will now before doing this lily...maybe 2 or 3 times. Guess I was getting ahead of myself. The lily is for Christmas so I have time and, if absolutely necessary can cut out the vein. But, prefer to raise it slightly with a shim.

        My new saw is due for delivery tomorrow so I'll just get everything lined up to make some duck inlays following directions (for sure).

        Thanks,
        Regis

          I occasionally do a poor job on a turn like that and in other areas of my inlays. I correct it by mixing some white glue with sanding dust from my orbital sander and mashing it into the crack or hole. I apply this mixture and squeegee it off with an old credit card. Allow it to dry a few minutes and sand it a bit. The errors will "disappear"

            Rolf, smaller bowl-cutting angles, 30˚ or less, usually don't present a problem either with vibration or for cutting into the table. It's when you get into the 40˚ and 45˚ range that things get dicey for both. (The Seyco saw doesn't even cut bevels greater than 35˚ or so!) If you add even a slight...

            I've done some bevel cutting on my EX-21 as well and also have not experienced any added vibration, nor have I cut into the table. Perhaps I haven't cut at a steep enough angle, but the existing blade hole has been sufficient. I do despise the useless vacuum holes, but I've learned to live with them...

            Carole Your hole size was a concern when I purchased the Pegas Replacement Table for my EX21, because I had cut into the side of hole on the original table, The damage I did to the old table was due to the blade adjustments were not in the center of blade holders. So far that has not been an issue...

            That is an interesting point Carole. I have done some bevel cutting on the EX and can't say that I have experienced an increase in vibration or any problems with following the lines. I know when I cut one of your bowl designs on my Hawk I really had to concentrate on not pushing down hill....

            Just a word of caution about the size of the blade hole. When I used a DeWalt years ago in the infamous community woodshop, and also with my more recent experiences with the Jet, if you do much bevel cutting at a steep angle, you will cut into the table. That's why inserts have the slot that can be...
