  • 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 !

        How thick is that foam Randy? That turned out really nice.

        I have both types of saw A tilting table Hawk g426 and an Older Excalibur with a tilting head. Unlike Carole for bevel cuts I prefer the tilting head I do larger projects and it is easier for me.
        Regarding compound cuts they are cut at 90 degrees.

        If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. ๐Ÿ˜

        Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.
