  • spiral reverse baldes and hard to cut wood

    Hi All, Been On Vacation. I Have Been Cutting The Hardest Wood I've Ever Cut. Maple Burl About 100 Years Old. Has The Little Spikes All Around, And Looks Great With Any Kind Of Fish In It. A Pain In The Butt To Cut. I Am Almost Glad I Only Have A Couple Of Pieces Left. My Point Of This Thread Is That I Went Through 30 Blades And I'm Only Half Way Done. I Use 2/0 Which Only Lasts For About 3 Cuts And The I Tried Larger Sizes, All Being Spiral Blades. I Bought Some Spiral Reverse About A Year Ago That I Really Dont Like, But A Thought Hit Me. So I Got Them Out And All I Can Say Is For That Hadr Piece Of Wood You May Be Cutting, The Spiral Reverse Cuts It Like Butter, Frozen Butter, But It Is A Lot Easier To Cut This Stuff With Them. Just A Rambleing Thought. Tks, Rain Man---------welcome Back Evie !

        I had to fool around with copying and taping a pattern again today. This wasn’t as bad as the fish, but still a pain. I use rapid resizer. Scan a pattern, put in size I want and it prints it out. If more than one page, it numbers each page at the top and I tape them together. Had the fish pattern...

        Rolf, I cover it with clear contact paper (comes off clean without leaving a residue) and draw a grid for the direction I want to cut (ie horizontal or diagonal) to keep the rows even. The rest is all freehand....

        I use acrobat reader. The poster feature will enlarge and if it goes to multiple pages it will put in cut marks. Even if the page is over letter size it will spread to multiple pages at 100%.

        If it is in PDF form you can open with Inkscape or GIMP and select what you...

        Hi Linda, great find...I think.

        Please keep us up to date with any information you receive. I would really like to get into this, but my computer skills are almost nonexistent, I need something that a 74 year old air head 🙄 can figure out. Thanks for sharing.

        Great job, SNOOPY rules.

        There are very few people who had the insight about life that Charles Schultz had.
