    I cut only wood. Green, resaw, curves: itís all at one speed. There is no need for a second speed unless you are cutting different materials.

    Then again I only use a single, low tpi blade....

    I use the worksharp and I have after market cbn discs that are great. They only go up to 1200 so like the others I use it for the primary bevel. My platform is home built. The nature of the...

    I second Roger's advice.

    How thick is the piece. If it's less than 4/4, I'd vote for the table saw. The thicker the piece, the more I think bandsaw+hand plane becomes the easier solution - even...

    I've used that exact set up to spray EM8000cv with the cross linker as well as without the crosslinker.
    The crosslinker (@5-7%) does not alter the viscosity or spraying properties at all.

    Can you post a picture? I am having trouble Visualizing. My knee jerk reaction is to plane across grain at the problem area and then work backwards to blend it in. But I wouldby commit to that...

    Iím with these guys. Donít engrave it. Those are not our emotions to have, or author.

    Iíd write just the first names and year on the back. No engraving. That feels most respectful to me.

    I've been spraying Target products with a Fuji Semi Pro 2 for a couple years, and now a Q4. Either are fine. The gun/cup for the Q4 are better than the SP2.

    Off the planer, 150.

    These days, I try to choose my wood carefully and as straight grained as possible. Costs more, takes more up front time. Makes the rest of the process enjoyable.

    Good luck with that. I bet it only works on the smallest and split-proniest of woods.

    You don't need a bandsaw. But it's a very versatile tool for the space it takes up.

    Target will match any color from the major paint manufacturers in their EM6500 tinted lacquer. I did my son's bathroom cabinets in a Benjamin Moore blue this way.

    The issue for me was that repeated grindings with the v arm set at one place caused the bevel to contact imperceptibly lower each time. Itís fine at first when I was well above center.

    My SRG doesn't have swept back wings by design. It's never been an issue. I used to sharpen on a v arm until I learned the hard way why this is dangerous. I now sharpen on a flat tool rest.

    Have you tested lacquer on the bare wood, no filler, no shellac, no stain.

    It is possible you just have bad lacquer that is not drying.
