  • blade for ripping oak??

    is there a blade out there designed to cut with the grain? i'm currently using
    a FD-SR #7 and unless i use a brand new blade, the wood is laughing at me. i'm cutting 3/4" oak. what i have been doing for the cuts with the grain is using a new blade every 5-10 minutes of cutting. i'm saving those blades for later use when i'm cutting across the grain.

    Because oak is heavy grained it can at times be very tough. Use a skip toothed blade at least a #7 if no detail use a #9 Also the precision ground or in Mike's case the FD Polar blades work well.

        is doing great in therapy. His range of motion is about 3 weeks ahead of where they expected him to be. He has zero strength in his hand or arm. He tried to grate some cheese, and he couldn’t hold the grater. The doctor had to do repair stitching on the muscle and that will take the longest to heal....

        When we started out, it was 45 deg and rain. When we got there it was 44 deg and rain. By the time we left it stopped raining but was 42 deg. and windy. Luckily we are under cover but that doesn’t stop the wind. I sold 4 baskets, Sealife puzzle and a few other things. I moved the coffee grinders...

        I thought I read you use shrink wrapped bags for your puzzles. Where do you get them from?...
