    Our Lowes store still has the good old mineral spirits. We have the new milky stuff too, but it doesn't sell very well. Comes in both quart and gallon sized cans.

      That’s what I use mineral oil and mineral spirits. I mix it 50/50 or 40/60.

        Does the smell ever go away? Drip dry?

          Bruce lets it soak in on the cardholders, takes 24 hrs. I let everything drip for a few minutes then wipe excess off. 50/50 takes longer to dry than 40/60. I usually move everything upstairs and turn the ceiling fan on to to help it soak in. This finish takes 3-4 days to dry enough to take to shows. Pack with tissue paper to absorb excess. There is no odor of the mineral spirits after it dries. Cutting boards take 3-4 weeks as they are soaked in straight mineral oil for 15 - 30 minutes and dry naturally, turning over daily. And it keeps your hands soft while dipping.

            At the time I thought "Ah, spit!" (or words like that) and just threw the blade in the garbage. It was the #5 size blade. I suspect it would cost more to have it done than the cost of a new blade. The owners manual is not very helpful, the wording is awkward, having been 'translated' into...

            The brazing process doesn't look too bad. I have seen the welders built into the industrial bandsaws, so out of curiosity, I looked that up and that process is pretty cool to watch also, though trying that on something this small would probably light the whole thing up....

            Jo, I did a bit of research on the web, and there are lots of videos of people silver soldering broken blades. In hindsight I remember I had made a jig eons ago to do just that, when I still had a small Craftsman bench top three wheeler....
