  • clear plastic storage tubes

    Here are some clear plastic storage tubes, and they are 6 inches long.....
    The price is reasonable, too, they're onsale at 14.87, but the S&H jumps it up to over $22.00.
    So just wanted to post this, as I know someone was looking for something reasonably priced....I think the ones she had found were way high in price if I remember correctly. These wouldn't be too bad for 12 tubes.

        If you have the EX and plan on using the blade storage area, make sure you check the thickness of these blade holders. Some on the market do not fit.

            I just bought a 10-pack of the 6" X 5/8" clear polycarbonate test tubes from McMaster for $4.22. The caps were sold separately at $1.56 for a 10-pack, so the total for my blade storage tubes was $5.78.
            I ordered some other stuff as well, but even so regular FedEx ground shipping was still under $7.00. I order from them quite a bit annually and generally find their shipping costs to be very reasonable... most of the time.

                        At KMart, HD, or Lowes, I saw a much wider clear storage container for $2. It could fit many blades, Mike labels them and they are in plastic bags, so why not...

                        I already bought a cheap clear storage case for screws (on sale at Harbor Frieght) for my blades though.

                          I just did a quick job on my table. Charles Hand has noticed that the adhesive on the new rolls of Contact brand shelf paper leaves a residue. He has changed to The duck brand. I just bought a roll and covered my table with it. It is a tough slick surface. It will be interesting to see how it holds...

                          Rolf, smaller bowl-cutting angles, 30˚ or less, usually don't present a problem either with vibration or for cutting into the table. It's when you get into the 40˚ and 45˚ range that things get dicey for both. (The Seyco saw doesn't even cut bevels greater than 35˚ or so!) If you add even a slight...

                          I've done some bevel cutting on my EX-21 as well and also have not experienced any added vibration, nor have I cut into the table. Perhaps I haven't cut at a steep enough angle, but the existing blade hole has been sufficient. I do despise the useless vacuum holes, but I've learned to live with them...
