    FInished Product

    Some folks expressed a desire to see this thing once it was completed. This is the bowl I experimented on, with the little Kobalt miter saw.

    The downside is that, I used Hickory for most of the bowl. Hickory is a hard brittle wood but, it also has an open grain, which promptly absorbed...

    Yep that's the right website. I got the plans from this site, that I used to base my sled. I built mine from some parts from an Incra Build-it kit -- https://www.instructables.com/Simple...gmented-Bowls/

    I tried to upload the PDF file but it's to big.

    Betty - I'll be giving...

    Actually, since Jerry Bennett came up with the wedgie sled jig, the time it takes to cut most segments has been reduced (for me anyway) by at least 50%. Complicated feature rings can take time to develop and build, but simple ones can be just as effective.

    The feature ring on this one happened...

    Yeah, the job was a seasonal - supposed to last 4-6 months, but things carried on. They needed the help during the holiday season and so on - etc, etc, etc. Now, it's 25 - 30 hours per week - maybe more if someone is on vacation or something. They haven't pissed me off enough to walk on them yet and...

    An Update -

    The saw works amazingly well. I've included a picture of a bowl that I'm working on. All the rings, except for the feature ring, were cut with this little saw.

    However - while I'm pleased with the machine - the saw blade; not so much. Kobalt claims it to be a fine...

    An Unexpected New Toy

    Last year, during the Black Friday sales, and through to the end of December, Lowes was selling the small Kobalt 7-1/4" Miter Saw for $99.98 -- this one -- https://www.lowes.com/pd/Kobalt-Comp...Saw/1000553513

    One guy brought...

    replied to Saw Stop
    I love my SawStop Contractor saw. Out of the box, the table to blade setting was within 5 thousandths of an inch. After three years running it has drifted just a little - it's now withing 4 thousandths of an inch.

    I will guarantee that any body whose spouse has seen a SawStop demo, will...

  • Actually, most of it is not knowing enough about using the laser and the LaserGRBL software. Most of my failed experiments are software generated, because I didn't set it up correctly.

    I made a black & white jpeg of my logo and a red one (also jpeg). Then started trying different settings....
