          Those are cool -- I really like how the bows are done so they look like real ribbons!

                  For anyone interested.
                  The bows are easy to make. The pattern is originally part of a pattern frome Steve Good.
                  These were cut from some scrap 3/8 3 ply from the trash. It worked but I recommend a better quality ply like BB
                  Lots of possibilities.
                  I'm looking forward to seeing different variations of these bows.

                  ENJOY

                    Thanks a lot Rob for the pattern and the how to, but one more question, how big is it? I printed it out and it's about 13.5 cm (5.31") is that too big for 3/8" wood?

                      You can size them to whatever size you need. I've made them down to about 3/4" about 19MM for earrings. At that size I don't double cut the loops.
                      You don't have to use plywood but it gives you good ribbon like stripes.

                          by Rolf
                          I just finished rebuilding my friends 2nd EX 21, This one was in much better shape than the first. No rusty bearings this time but I re-greased them anyway.
                          I adjusted the front back motion and and the blade is also at 90 degrees to the table when using the locating pin.

                          I used...

                          If it means the difference between cutting something and doing nothing, then go for it. It might not be the choice of most of us, but we aren't working under the same constraints as you. Hope it works out for you. Looking forward to a review, once you get a few miles on it.

                          After totally over-thinking this, I have decided to go ahead with the Micro Mark Saw. It will enable me to do everything I can imagine in my limited space and budget.
                          I thank everyone for offering advice, and I look forward to receiving more. As soon as I get it and set it up, I will post pictures...

                          Figured it out. The photos were Live and I had to edit them. As you can see, we were quite lucky they didn’t come crashing down in a storm. The last picture was a 2 trunk tree. My son already split a truck load today.

                          Next project, the roofer next week. Yippee....

                          Betty, I just tried a test, using a standard jpeg file. I clicked "upload attachments", then selected the photo I wanted to upload, then double clicked the photo, and it uploaded without a problem. Go figure!
