  • Power craft

    Anyone ever hear of PowerCraft Band saws? I have the opportunity to pick up a 14" for $125.00, It does need a little work which is easy enough to do. But I need to know something about the saw, like is it anygood?

    Would that be the old Montgomery Ward brand of power tools?

      I used to purchase a LOT of "power craft" tools from M/Wards....don't know who originally made them but they held up well.......i have/had an old table saw that i mistreated for quite a while and finally gave it to my grandson about 5-6 years ago..i think he's still useing it to redo his home.......as far as a bandsaw, i DON'T remember ever seing one at our local store or i probably would have bought it too.(used to be a tool hound ) the brand was well made. doubt seriously if any of the parts places have any replacements for the tools now ...unless they were standardized into the modern brands.

          Cute Pattern.
          I have good success treating the wood with spry shellac before cutting. There will not be a problem painting the pieces with craft paint over the shellac. As previously said, just be sure to keep the paint off of the cut edges. If you want to seal the craft paint, a light spray coat...

          This is the puzzle, for some reason I usualy make my puzzels with thicker stock, sometimes 3/4 oak or pine or poplar. I have made puzzels in the past I just wanted to get some fresh ideas on blades and finish. I like the idea of applying shellac first that is if the paint sitll covers...

          No more waiting for weeks to start therapy. The sooner you use the replacement the better. Bruce was doing mild hand exercises the day after his surgery and bending slightly at the elbow. They expected him in pt for at least 6-9 months. He stopped in February and is doing home therapy, like lifting...
