  • Saw decision

    Went to Canadian Tire on my way to Marcel's today and got mad. Finally they gave me a credit for the total amount that I paid for the saw.
    That is great.

    Got a phone call from the Delta people. There are no Delta's around. they are not a big seller so they discontinued selling them here. Three reconditioned were available but I cound not see them. I had to buy them and then she would order it for me. The lady told me that the price I was getting on the Dewalt was extremely good and that both saws were equal.

    Went to Marcel's to try his Dewalt 788 and loved it. No comparison with the Mastercraft. I am not anxious to have my own saw.

    Called the store and yes the one I asked for is in. Only thing is that because of the snow I have to spend the night in the city. Hubby does snow removal in the city and so as soon as he is finished his run in the morning we are hopping over to the store to pick up my own saw.

    so many projects in my head and so little time.....maybe this time tomorrow I will have my own saw set up.

          Way to go Diane, it will be much better than the saw you did have.

                Diane, we'll be anxiously awaiting a photo of your first fretwork portrait (no fewer than 200 holes) with your new saw. Gotta break that puppy in.

                      Congrats Diane,
                      After some initial problems------DeWalt had me pick up a new saw locally & I sure do like it. I also got an easy lift, footswitch, & florescent magnifying light, all of which have made the scrolling even more enjoyable!

                        I tried all of these gadgets at Marcel's of course. I am interested but will be shopping around the a good price. Maybe I will get one of those for my birthday. The first thing I will need is a magnifying light to finish the project that I started on Marcel's saw. Looking around.

                            Saw is here Ian and almost out of the box. We just finished putting together the stand. She's going up tonight and to be used tomorrow.

                                I've been using the bags from Amazon and a heat gun my wife bought when she was a preschool teacher. Unless you are wrapping of small parts, you don't need a sealer. Just fold it over and hold it with a small piece of scotch tape on the back. After you shrink it it's sealed enough to keep everything...

                                My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

                                None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

                                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.
