  • Rifle Pattern

    Has anyone done one of Robert Hlavacek gun patterns? I am in the middle of doing his 1866 Carbine pattern am and wondering about cutting the backer? It is 44 inch's long and then for an even better challenge some inside cuts?
    Well, when there is a will there is a way. Just wondering what the easiest is.

    I've done inside cuts like that same as normal except you sometimes have to get creative and cut a bit one way, get it turned around, cut some more and so on. Eventually, you should be able to get it all cut out.
    Another option is spiral blades if you have them.

      You can also use something like a Roto-Zip or a Trim Router for the inside cuts.
      Depending upon size, even a zig-saw.

        Thanks for the suggestions. I have been scrolling for over 20 years now and have never tried a spiral blade. That is probably my best option, as I am horrible with a jig-saw, even worse with a roto-zip.

          You can also turn your blade around. Takes a bit of getting used too.

            Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
            That is...

            The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

            Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year. Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...

            Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

            Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.
