  • cutting curly maple

    i am cutting a whale puzzle out of 3/4" curly maple with a FD-UR #5 blade and am having trouble with burning. Can you help me? i have increased and decreased speed and am careful not to push but it burns easily.

    Help please

    Have you tried clear packing tape over the pattern? One other thing to check is if the blade is in properly just in case it's in upside down.

      I always find the wood harder to cut when it's curly, instead of when it lies flat.











      .........okay, that was a dumb joke.

        Oh Shawn...that was a groaner......Some woods are just a bugger to cut, try the packing tape as suggested.

          I just cut from Curly maple. I think i was using a #7 with packing tape on top. I was able to cut no problem at high speed

            I always use clear packing tape when cutting 3/4" hardwood and use a sharp blade.

              I checked out www.ULine.com We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...

              Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

              We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
