  • New Addition........ TWINS!

    Just got the new addition for my daughter to use (and granddaughter when she's older, just 3 months now) It is a type 1 Dewalt 788, on the left. On the right is a type 2 Dewalt. My daughter has taken an interest and I couldn't pass this saw by. Awesome deal! Looks like 2X sawdust this winter.

      Two saws ? Now that's just plain greedy. You wouldn't catch me being so self-indulgent, no sirreee!

      Oh, I forgot, one's for the family. Yeah, right .

        Tim,

        If you practice real hard, maybe you can learn to use both at the same time - wouldn't that be something to see!!!! Kind of like stack cutting with a difference!

          Doesn't everybody have at least 2 saws?

            There is a striking resemblance to my twins, except mine arent potty trained yet, theres piles of droppings under both of them! Congrats on the other saw. After you get a few hours on it, do a review of the series 2 compared to the number 1. Dale

              Thought about using one with left hand and other with right but........... don't think so. Wondered if I could use it as a duplicator? My daughter is coming over later this week to try it out. Wants to cut out some puzzles for my granddaughter.

              Rolf - Yes the light holder is homemade. Got a pattern from Meisels about 3 years ago and made it.

                Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

                As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

                I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....

                I shrink wrap all my puzzles. It is the best method I have found. I do not use a cardboard backer as some do. I use shrink wrap bags that I get from Amazon or Ebay. 8" x 12" will fit 95% of the puzzles I make.

                To use the bags you will need a sealer. I have one very similar...

                I checked out www.ULine.com We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...
