  • A promising product

    I don't like to promote one product over another but what do you do when there is nothing else like it.

    We often talk about the surface of our scroll saw tables and ways to improve them. Buffing them with wax, covering them with false tables.
    I just found online a film that can cover the saw table to provide a slick surface. The cover is repositionable and leaves no residue.
    The overlay is a Mylar/Nylon film
    It is from a company called Slick Saw.

    I have not tried the product, I read about it in a magazine and checked out the site http://slicksaw.com/

    I am not endorsing the product in any way but it wont hurt to read about it.

    You may just want to try taking mylar and placing that on the table to see how that works.


    An afterthought. I wonder if you can get plumbers teflon tape in rolls 12" wide

    This looks like it could come in very handy Carl. Especially for wooden jigs and fences that I quite often make. Thanks for the heads up!

      That really does sound promising. My circular saw is pretty beat up and I always put tape on it before cutting wood. This looks like it would solve the problem.

        Something else you may try. My wife worked at a clinic and brought me a bunch of old xray films, you know the ones that don't turn out and they have to shoot you again. I use them when I need a zero clearance insert. Just punch a small hole in the middle. When you get an xray, ask the tech if they have any to throw away. That is if you don't mind someones femur laying on your saw.

                What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                The bags seem easier on the surface.
                But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                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...
