    Linda , Great subject!
    Actually I have the handle on the front of my Hawk and clip on a plastic bag with clothes pins. The Hawk blade is way up front.
    Lots of the so called Dogy bags are really nice plastic containers with lids, I use them for small parts, dipping in sanding sealer etc....

    replied to I finally ordered some spirals
    I did receive the blades earlier this week and finally had a chance to play with them a bit. No real cutting but I did stack some 1/8 BB to get a feel for the blades.
    Much to my surprise only the bottom was fuzzed out so I may add another sacrificial layer. The edges of the cut were fairly smooth....

    replied to Business Cards
    I started out printing my own. Like Dirtrider I used the Avery business card stock, it worked well for me but I have now had them printed by Vistaprint. Designing it, as you are discovering, is the hard part. I will be working with a friends daughter (graphic designer) to help me with a new one as the...

    Thanks for the kind words Jay. The designers make us all look good when you think about it. Without their vision I would be lost.

    For the most part it all comes down to tension. I was over tensioning all of my 2/0 blades.
    One problem I have is that I changed my upper clamp on my Hawk...

    started a topic I finally ordered some spirals

    I finally ordered some spirals

    Charles Hand has talked me into cutting one of his masterpieces. I am not a fan of spirals but I think his piece calls for them.
    I ordered flat end FD #1 from Mikes. I have used the 2/0 FD new spirals on some of Volker Arnolds work, lots of veining.


    I haven't done a large fretwork...

    Graver, hm I will have to look that up as it is a tool I am not familiar with. I have done some very fine soldering with one of the small Creme Brule torches.

    This is a great discussion for those of us that enjoy new toys I mean tools.

    Just so we don't get into any ugly discussions like what happened when SSWWC published an article in the magazine about laser cutters.

    1100 sq ft! WOW It is a good thing I don't have anywhere near that much space. Tim you could just add the laser next to the router and just put in an offset. It would be nice to be able to laser engrave, some of my work
