    replied to Bruce at the sawmill
    Reminds me of the sawmill the Homestake Mining Co used to cut trusses and braces for the shafts. Talking mid - late 1950's. We lived about 3/4 of a mile away. As kids we would sneak in through one of the many gaps in the fence and watch them cut the big logs.

    Since my dad worked for the...

    Good deal! I love those folks who walk up, point to something(s) and say, "I want that!" and hand you a credit card.

    Carole -

    When I'm making rings from 3/16" or 14" board, I drill with a #57 bit and use a #3 blade to cut the rings. I'll, also, add 1/16" inch between the inner and outer diameter of each ring to accommodate drilling holes.

    45° drilling guide

    As I'm constantly making "Bowls-from-boards" I'm always having to drill holes at a 45° angle. I've made a couple of jigs,with limited success, but they are far from perfect. I have seen jigs & guides on the web (some thing like this - https://www.amazon.com/ANGLE-DRILL-GUIDE-increment...

  • The difference between 30° and 45° is amazing on my EX-21. The vibration at 45 is much greater. While having the flat table is great, I have to tilt the saw to the left to keep the upper clamp knob from beating my fingers to a pulp. I cut a lot of bowls-from-boards so I'm used to it. I probably wouldn't...
