    Blade bowing

    I find it helps if you frequently release forward pressure on the piece and watch what the blade does. Push a little into the line, then ease back and let the blade straighten itself out. At first, do it just about every two seconds. You'll probably see a lot of correction...

    replied to Issue #24 - Fall 2006

    While it's true that the word Craft (or more particularly the word "crafts") does tend to conjure up the hot-gluing of plastic babies' breath to styrofoam boaters, I take pride in the name of "Craftsman" (or maybe "craftsman", the capitalized form representing...

    Well, I have a Dewalt type 1, an older Delta where you have to use a tool to open and close the clamp, and a delta 350 with the quickset lever system.

    I often teach small classes at the Woodcraft store here and usually have to use all three of my saws in addition to the dewalts in the...

    I'm a partisan of the simpler the better. Delta quickchange is definitely not simpler! I dislike it.

    The blades often come with a little oil on them. Wipe them off before using. A simple paper towel will pdobably do it, or use some naphtha (I just enjoy spelling that) or alcohol wipes...

    Seems like you got the Dremel covered, now on to the raggedy cuts:

    Are you using any thicker wood on the top and bottom of your stack? That 1/16 plywood can be very floppy, and if it's not supported, even in a tall stack, it can work up and down making gaps in the middle. Once a chip...

  • For a new, not recon, these are about 70 dollars US. Full list price is 79.99This is right in the same bracket as the other good 5" RO sanders without variable speed, like the Porter Cable 333 (about 75). General impression I can gather is good. As for the $50 price (including shipping), well,...

    Osage Orange is called Bodark, from the french bois d'arc -- wood for making bows, for which it is excellent.

  • Life is rapid and I never got around to putting in an entry. If I did and I didn't win, and I wanted folks to see my pathetic little loser of a project ;0 I would post it in the gallery or right out here in the forum.

  • Well done! I see your therapy has advanced quite acceptably. Couple of questions:

    WW accident? Woodworking? World War? Welcome Wagon? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Such an avid guitar player, and with such woodworking skills -- have you dabbled at all in lutherie?

  • I'm all in favor of the Google bar spell checker. It knows that the proper term for one who saws is sawyer, not sawer. In honor of the Google bar spell check function, I've amended my signature line.

  • Each tool does one thing better than the other tools, though each can be made to do some of what the others can do with a little less convenience and (often) a little more danger.

    A table saw can rip.

    A chop saw can cut mitres.

    A radial arm saw can cross...

    replied to Sanders
    Carl, that sander, like the Sand Flee, can't really be said to be a thickness sander. It will smooth a face nicely, but As JT points out, it has no mechanism to provide pressure.

    If you're just out to mask surface imperfections like the "chatter marks", the sand flea or this...

    replied to Advanced Sawer
    An advanced sawyer is someone who cuts patterns that are marked "for the advanced sawyer".

    The difference between being an advanced sawyer and not being one is primarily a matter of confidence and patience. Scrolling isn't hard, it's mostly tedious. You need to know a few tricks...
