  • American Elm

    Anyone know where can I source some American Elm wood for a small project?

    You've tried all the online sources? What size piece do you need?

      Gloria, this is a long shot, and not appropriate for now, but do you know any arborists?

      Several years ago, I lost several huge American elms. I wasn't woodworking then, but what an opportunity! If you do know anyone, you could put the word out to save you something if they have to take a tree down. Where I used to live, any tree that was afflicted with Dutch elm disease had to come down immediately.

      Just a thought.

              Twenty years in electronics retail and here is a quick dirty way to tell the difference:
              a fast blow will only have the wire element. Slow blow almost always has some extra structure that will be left behind after the fuse blows.
              Secondly, there is a series of three letter engraved on one...

              They look like David Spielmann's Designs to me. I will check my library this evening, but I bet you already that they are from one of his pattern books.

              Scott - once this Covid situation has passed I'll definitely be heading up to NC. I'm tentatively thinking late spring/early summer next year. I am not sure just what pointers...

              I found this information on fuses in general.

              Blowing type. Fast-blow fuses will blow as soon as the current reaches the fuse's amperage rating, while slow-blow fuses are designed to tolerate a large number of startup surges and modest short-term overloads without blowing.
