  • 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 !

        Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

        We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.

        What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
