    The colors look great! Should make some great intarsia.

    I have been considering post a photo of some silver maple that I cut from a short log. It has bluish grays to whites to slight yellows. My daughter had a silver maple cut down in mid May when it was full of sap. The saps didn't take...

    I received mine yesterday but didn't get to look through until this (Sunday) afternoon. Carole had another great article in it. This one was on a Dice Tower.

    When looking at the dice tower, I didn't notice the author until I was the next page and I looked back. It was Carole!

    replied to A lesson learned! Dehydration warning.
    Rolf, take care of yourself. Know your body and the how the aging process changes/limits our tolerance to heat and or lack of hydration.

    When I get dehydrated, I am susceptible to leg and hand cramps but only several hours past the event. Even when I drink fair amount of water to compensate....

  • I am interested to see replies on this. I used to have a 12 inch Sears/Craftsman band saw that the head tilted instead of the table. On that one I had a couple of 1/8 inch blades and used them on occasion on larger items as you mentioned. I didn't have that saw set up like Alex S. did but it worked...

    Quick look up for an oilite bearing here:

    There should be a way to look up the size of the bearings , if you need one. Otherwise,...

    replied to SuperMax mystery
    Yesterday, I looked up a PDF of the 19-38 and it was very unclear; I looked up a different one a few minutes ago and was not totally clear, but much better than yesterday's and the picture of the oilite bearings were visible. It does look like brass or bronze bushings (oilite). The good news on those...

    I don't have a PDF of the SuperMax but if they have bearings in the small belt rollers on each end, they (bearings) could be dry and wearing out. Bearings will make a rattle noise. I would imagine that they would have roller bearings, but small ball bearing could do the same. A company like SuperMax...

    replied to Grizzly G0555x Band saw
    Spent yesterday cleaning up my shop - (once very two years!) and could not find my 3/4 inch BS wood slicer. Came in and discovered that I ordered and received a 1/2 inch wood slicer two years ago. (I keep the records on my computer.) I know I had a 3/4 inch at one time but finally figured out that was...

    replied to Coloring Wood question
    Pen turners often get "green" wood and being impatient, want to make a pen quickly. It is recommended with green wood to cut the size blanks 1/4 inch on each side large because it will shrink when drying.

    Two basic methods they use for quick drying:
    1. place in the oven...

    Here is the link that changed the way I set up and tune my band saw:

    About 30 minutes but worth it.

    WOW - Re-watching after 3 years; I forgot a lot and I gave some wrong information...

    Yes, it does on mine - plenty of room in the release to remove and replace the belt. 95% of my cutting is with 3/8" blades, so I rarely have to re-set the knob. When I start cutting those logs down, I will have to adjust it as I will be using a 3/4 inch blade....
