  • another kind of re-dos...

    ok, i stained with a minwax stain sealer, then oiled with danish oil, now customer asked if i could make the piece a lil darker, will the re-stain seep past the oil, or is there something else i should do, w/o having to recut? customer also said i could make it black, in which case, i have behlen jet black dye….any ideas on this, pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaassssseeeeee?

      Danish Oil dries to create a semi hard finish so no stain will penetrate. To change color you will need to sand off the danish oil.

        You can try putting stain on your sandpaper and sanding..... I've succeeded at touching up missed spots by doing this but I've never done a whole project.

              Mini wax is a stain / sealer and with the oil on top of it you should have to sand through both the oil and the stain to get to the wood. Sanding this deep should then cause an uneven re-stain.

              Sawyer's suggestion sounds like your best bet.....

                Rolf, smaller bowl-cutting angles, 30˚ or less, usually don't present a problem either with vibration or for cutting into the table. It's when you get into the 40˚ and 45˚ range that things get dicey for both. (The Seyco saw doesn't even cut bevels greater than 35˚ or so!) If you add even a slight...

                I've done some bevel cutting on my EX-21 as well and also have not experienced any added vibration, nor have I cut into the table. Perhaps I haven't cut at a steep enough angle, but the existing blade hole has been sufficient. I do despise the useless vacuum holes, but I've learned to live with them...

                Carole Your hole size was a concern when I purchased the Pegas Replacement Table for my EX21, because I had cut into the side of hole on the original table, The damage I did to the old table was due to the blade adjustments were not in the center of blade holders. So far that has not been an issue...

                That is an interesting point Carole. I have done some bevel cutting on the EX and can't say that I have experienced an increase in vibration or any problems with following the lines. I know when I cut one of your bowl designs on my Hawk I really had to concentrate on not pushing down hill....

                Just a word of caution about the size of the blade hole. When I used a DeWalt years ago in the infamous community woodshop, and also with my more recent experiences with the Jet, if you do much bevel cutting at a steep angle, you will cut into the table. That's why inserts have the slot that can be...
