  • Child's Name Train

    Finally finished my Granddaughters train. Engine and Caboose made from untreated 2x4, the rest from Aspen. Cut partially on the band saw and some with a scroll saw. Letters are 2 1/2 " high, overall length is 39". Paint is non-toxic.

    Now I've got no projects in work. So...I'm creating a fretwork pattern I call "Courting Tigers." I really like the idea so I hope the pattern meets my expectations.

    That's a great looking train, Mike, and a great idea. Now I know what to make my nephew for his birthday!

          Very nicely done, Mike - i wish someone had made one of those for me when i was a kid - though the train would have been a lot shorter

                  That's adorable.

                  If I already didn't have something in mind for my niece and nephew for their birthdays, I just might have had to make one for them.

                    When a blade slips out, the tendency is to tighten it more. Make sure you haven't over-tightened the clamp forcing the sides apart. Most OEM clamps are made from soft aluminum so once it starts they will continue spreading and it will be near-impossible to keep the blades in place.

                    Blade slippage is a function of the blade clamp holder and or the set screw and thumb screw with swivel.

                    Tricia what saw do you have? Does the blade slip or it just won’t tighten?

                    Have you tried to rough up the thumb screws tips? How old are the blade clamps? may be time to replaced them.
