  • Cutting thicker wood

    I have trouble when cutting 3/4 inch wood. I don't 'push' my work through, and try to keep it straight, but the exit hole on the bottom is always different than the line I've been following on the top. Therefore, when I turn the work over, the design isn't as nice as the top. I'm using a Craftsman 16'. Can anybody tell me what I'm doing wrong?

    Thanks a lot. I never even thought about changing my blade. I've been using a #5, but will definitely try a #7. And I'll also have to try some Flying Dutchman Blades....

      It took him a year to get rid of all the stuff for her. That actually cost Bruce a $5.00 donation to the club. All the attachments are Tormex. $35 was for everything. He’s quite happy.

      Welcome Ian from Reno Nevada! Glad to have you aboard. Some saws can be frustrating, and others we love. Lots of help available here.

      $35 was a great price no matter what. Bruce definitely scored big time. And by the same token, the wife found new homes for her hubby's stuff that she had no use for. I'd rather sell cheap to someone who may actually use them than any other purpose.
