  1. That depends upon what type of dye or stain was...

    That depends upon what type of dye or stain was used. Some stains are very light stable and will protect the wood they are applied to from fading. Many common interior wood stains fall into this...

    Doesn't have to be an antique, as Greg shows below, just direct sunlight. I first saw it in a house not even 20 years old in Germany that had floor to ceiling south facing windows. The sun had...

    Actually, you were right the first time. All woods will bleach out if exposed to enough direct sunlight. Cherry initially darkens, but if the exposure continues it will get lighter, and eventually...

    Those maple boards are never going to look like the table unless you bleach them first. Otherwise, the lightest it will be is with clearcoat, and that's going to be darker than the table. Ok, I'm...

    A 3/8" x 4 tpi blade is hard to beat for all around use, including resawing up to about 6".

    Bullseye shellac will last 2 years or so in an...

    Bullseye shellac will last 2 years or so in an unopened can, less after it's opened and exposed to moist air unless you back fill the head space with Bloxygen, et al. The leakage you observed is...

    I think it depends on the saw, but there's no way to know for sure until you measure the tension. Think about it. Even if the onboard tension indicator is accurate, what tension should it read? 18...

    I have a lot of experience with a 14" Delta cast iron BS. I've done a lot of tension measurements as well. With a high tension spring it can comfortably apply 12 ksi to a 1/2" blade. If you try to...

    Plenty of good advice above, nothing to add on that topic. However, contrary to many, I prefinish only when there is no other option, and when I have to I dry fit everything and adjust parts as...
  10. Aqua Coat clear grain filler and TimberMate...

    Aqua Coat clear grain filler and TimberMate Walnut both are water based and will work fine under any waterborne finish as long as you are spraying. If you are brushing on the finish, however, you...

    You are right. The Diemaster II does come in 3 tpi but it's 0.035" thick. With that in mind, I would go with the 0.025" thick one with 4 tpi. It will be easier for light duty saw to tension it and...
  12. Good memory Derek; yes, I did post about that...

    Good memory Derek; yes, I did post about that some time ago. It was more like green epoxy but, no matter, they were pretty hard bonded in the holes. I count myself very lucky that they came out...
  13. What Eric said. It's an appropriate size for...

    What Eric said. It's an appropriate size for that saw and what you want to do, it's bimetal so it will last quite a good while, and it's not too expensive. Any bimetal blade would work similarly;...
  14. I don't need 12+ months shelf life; it would be...

    I don't need 12+ months shelf life; it would be just nice to have. I ended up ordering some Unibond 800 because I've used it in the past and I know it works. I do plan to give the Ultra CAT a look...
  15. I have an FS31, about 30 years old. I could...

    I have an FS31, about 30 years old. I could joint perfectly straight and flat edges; it seems ridiculous that the factory would set up a jointer to cut spring joints, thankfully mine was nut. But...

    Thanks very much Jeff. I had forgotten about Ultra CAT. Looks for all the world like a perfect replacement for PRG.

    Yeah, availability is a problem but it's great stuff and worth hunting for. If you can get gloss or any sheen, really, you can add waterborne flatters to it to cut the sheen to whatever you want. ...

    Maybe. It's probably similar to Titebond Original or Extend but I haven't seen any data so that's just a guess. Thanks.

  19. Thanks Mike. Shop sawn veneer and sliced veneer...

    Thanks Mike. Shop sawn veneer and sliced veneer are different animals. Shop sawn veneer behaves more like real wood so some of the glues that work fine with sliced veneer don't with shop sawn...

    I'm sure it works well, Joe, but the price is ridiculous.

  21. Thanks for the feedback, everyone. Kevin, you...

    Thanks for the feedback, everyone. Kevin, you are right, the strength after 150F overnight shows almost no loss in strength for Extend compared to less than 50% for Original, but that's still 3X...
  22. Anyone Using Titebond Original for Shop Sawn Veneer?

    I have used buckets and buckets of Weldwood Plastic Resin Glue to veneer my 1/16 - 1/8" shop sawn veneer onto Baltic birch, MDF, etc. It was easy to get, didn't go bad for a long time, and was...

    Same here. The liners and lids last a really long time with waterbornes. When I clean the gun at the end of the day, but plan to spray the same stuff the next day, I remove the PPS cup from the gun...
  24. I clean my gun only at the end of the day. If...

    I clean my gun only at the end of the day. If you open the needle wide open water will flush out most of the paint inside the gun before you disassemble it. I wasn't kidding when I said it's a 5 -...

    Woah, why is the paint drying "all throughout the gun"? That should only happen if you disassemble the gun and don't clean it. Waterborne products are about the easiest thing to clean. Dump out...
