          I saw a saw like this about 12 years ago. A guy came in to calibrate it. He went to his truck, brought out a wooden box and opened it. He took out the device, calibrated the machine and just as quick put it back in the box and replaced it in the truck. Seems as though the "calibrator" was a very expensive piece of equipment!

          Congratulations on the purchase.

            Frieke -- Thanks for the pictures. I love the contrast between the new high tech saw and the old hand saws hanging on the wall. Always nice to remember how the old timers did magic with wood using all hand tools.

              The old hand saws were from his granddad..he had a furniture factory and learned Eric a lot... I hang them there to remember...

                      The quality of the equipment makes a real Artist even better. That is a great looking saw, to say the least. Hope he gets a lot of good use from it. I'm sure he will enjoy having it in the shop. Thanks for showing us.

                        Nice work. I truly admire all the projects that you share and I truly envy the fact that you finish what you start. What is your secret?

                        Thanks, Kim. I'll show that to my husband but since he has 2 surgeries coming up I doubt that will be on his to do list. The place we buy wood from air dries the wood for a year, than finishes with kiln drying....

                        will8989, We made a drying kiln out of a plan we saw on youtube. We took a 6-Tier Commercial Grade Heavy Duty Steel Wire Shelving Unit that we got at lowes, wrapped it in 1 inch foam insulation board and put two heat bulbs in the bottom, we have holes at the top and bottom to let the moisture out. We...
