  • new project finally finished

    this was a task , im not happy with the choice of wood, but happy with the end results, this was from a pattern by jacob fowler, i finally got flying dutchman blades and what a difference , i want to do one like this in curly maple, any tips using this type of wood , like is it hard to scroll, will the blades have a tendency to follow the curl, what blades would be best? etc.

          Nice work I always use prirals on fretwork only because you don't have to turn the wood also you can use them like a mini sander if you miss a little of the line.Jerry
          Don't worry be scrolling

            Very nice cutting of an intricate pattern. Remember, only you will see the mistakes. Thanks for sharing.

              Lefty - you shouldn't have any trouble working with curly maple. Just keep the speed down and your choice of FD UR blades keep you straight and clean.

              Great cutting

                Really nice work Lefty. But when you say "thank you , it came out great even with all the mistakes" let's refer to those actions as "minor adjustments" LOL

                  I just did a quick job on my table. Charles Hand has noticed that the adhesive on the new rolls of Contact brand shelf paper leaves a residue. He has changed to The duck brand. I just bought a roll and covered my table with it. It is a tough slick surface. It will be interesting to see how it holds...

                  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...
