  • Reverse Spiral Blades?

    I ordered some FD 2/0 reverse spiral blades and recieved them today, I ordered them in the hopes of reducing the amount of fuzzies I have on the backs of my portraits. So out to the saw I went and started making some sawdust. I stacked four 1/8 pieces of bb plywood and was impressed with how the blade handled. But upon finishing the portrait and examining the pieces I found that while the amount of fuzzies was reduced I had fuzzies on both sides of the bottom 3 boards not just the bottom side. Now normally I burn my fuzzies off the back, but can't even think about putting the torch to the front!! So I found myself having to very carefully sand the front side of each portrait No mishaps, but a lot of extra time spent.
    Is this normal results from reverse spirals? If so, its back to the old tried and true spirals for me.

    I've had the same exact problem...... Solved most of it by using nails to really tighten up the stack.

      Hi Rhys - I did finally get the center stand for the bike a couple of weeks back after it was stuck in customs for almost a month. Still have to put it on. The paddock stand will help me do this - Lol!

      Of course you are correct in that the center stand does a similar job but the advantage...

      Did you ever get the centre stand for the bike? A paddock stand does the same thing finally, I guess.

      Very nice Jim. You have a very contemporary look now! Since I do cabinet, Entertainment centers, etc. for my work I see a lot of the same looks being done here in Naples. (i.e. large porcelain tiles, lighted dropped ceiling)

      I do like your use of the space in the door way for additional...

      Well judging from the photos, it looks like it could be a scroll or band saw. (The photos, although a bit blurred, show a few burrs at the cut.) It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...
