    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 have the Pegas replacement table for my EX21. It was the best investment that I made. The best part is they eliminated the useless vacuum holes and reduced the size of the blade hole as well. Another benefit was the table stiffened the EX21 frame eliminating much of resonant vibration. It is a much...

              The perfect solution when I need a wider top on my Hegner. A magnetic sheet! I decided not to get the Pegas as the only reason was for the wider top and the top feed blade. After 19 years, my Hegner is still running like new and I couldn’t justify the expense. It was a “want” and not a “need”....

              Good idea Scott. Also, my daughter has long, curly hair. She twists it up and around and sticks a pencil in to hold it. I also stick a dowel in my hair when working and my hair gets in my way and I twist it up. The one in this picture would perfect for thick hair.
