    replied to Spiral Blades
    Just some specs on blades. The Flying Dutchman (FD) smallest diameter spirals is.030 "
    The FD puzzle blades the smallest is .009" and the next size up is .013". If you are cutting kids puzzles it is not so critical but if you are cutting regular thinner puzzles the smaller blades...

    Betty,
    He is fine. There is some flooding of the Tar river but it did not reach him.

    Can't add much but it is a beautiful wood selection and cutting.

    Rolf it appears I am no longer in the cross hairs of Florence. I am a good 100 miles away and in a non flood area. If your son needs to escape I have a spare bedroom. My cell number is 919-815-0466. Feel free to share with him.

    Betty, my step son is just north of the Pitt- Greenville airport. The flood waters from the Tar river get uncomfortably close. This will be a nasty. For all in the affected area please keep us posted.

    A table saw is a great tool but for large or long stuff not so good, especially in a smaller shop....

    Unfortunately with the aphid problem we have on the plants we can't see the eggs.

    Really really off topic

    June and I are observing Mother Nature at work. A couple of years ago we decided to plant some Milkweed to attract Monarch butterflies. The plant did not really do well last year but went nuts this year. We did not pay attention but the plant got infested with aphids and ants. We did see a couple of...

    HMM. You sure it isn't Bruce that made the old one disappear so he could get a new one. A chop saw is a must have in my opinion and certainly in my shop, otherwise I would have to use portable tools to long stuff to size.
    I had an old Delta 10 inch. I replaced it with the Makita dual slide...

    That stinks! What saw does he have his eye on?
    We have had a few issues this past summer with small burglaries, I have lots of expensive yard tools in my shed with no simple way to lock it. The obvious hasp with lock was just too ugly for my shed. We do have cameras in strategic locations that...

    replied to Supermax roller cleaning question
    Thanks Carole, interesting find on the contamination. I guess the belt breaks down a bit with the constant flexing around the rollers as I don't see how anything else could get under it.
    Looks like another project to add to my list after the holidays.

    replied to Supermax roller cleaning question
    I have found that WD40 cleans a lot of things then wipe down with alcohol. Or a strong detergent like "crud cutter"
    From a health perspective Acetone is not much healthier than brake cleaner. I use the brake cleaner a lot, in a well ventilated space.
    Mine also clicks a bit, I...

    replied to Hawk scroll saw - need advise
    Kevin, since you have made that change already the new assembly from Pozgai would not make any difference.
    The advantage of being able to pop the clamps off, at least for me is that I have several clamps pre-loaded with the blade that I am currently using. So when I wear one out or break one I...

    replied to Hawk scroll saw - need advise
    Kevin I was looking at that the other day and was wondering the same thing. On the older Hawks the upper blade clamp was not removable without tools. It looks like Pozgais current modification allows you to pop the upper blade clamp off which makes it very much like the current design on the new Hawks....

  • Charlies Angel. this years donation

    This is a Bruce Worthington design I have wanted to do since I first saw it. So I am making it as my annual donation to our churches live auction. This is my 8th year.
    It has been a while since I have done any intarsia so a bit rusty, Here are a few progress pictures. Woods used shawl Red heart,...

    I am assuming that this will be a donation to the church. That would be a significant donation of your time and skills.
    I agree with Denny I also like the Saman stains. Many of my wood turning friends are using alcohol based stains....
