  • American Elm

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

      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.

              I wonder if their effort to offer better quality products may have something to do with it. Seems like they want to market themselves as something more than just a cheap tool supplier. Maybe reducing the number of things eligible for the big discount coupons is part of a campaign to change their image....

              by Bill Wilson
              I've owned both tilting table and tilting head saws. My current saw is an EX-21 (pre-Chinese made version) with the tilting head. I have to say that for beveled cuts, I much prefer the EX over my previous tilting table saws (Craftsman and Dewalt). I think a lot of it is the rack & pinion angle...

              Just a random annoyance . . . . Anyone get frustrated by the Harbor Freight ads that say no exclusions, then you see the details and see "for items under $20", or worse yet, in super small print, "Can not be used for: Atlas, Bauer, Central Machinery, CoverPro, Hercules, Predator, compressors,...

              And no annoying dust collection holes, for little pieces to catch on, right?

              Since tilt arm style saws are my personal favorite . . . I can criticize it right? I hate the freaking dust collection mechanism on my King, and prefer the table on the older Green EX that didn't have that....
