    The table looks ground, but I can't tell if it's from a surface grinder or a blanchard grinder. If it looks like the swirls on your SCM bandsaw than it's Blanchard (rotary) ground, and if they're...

    But the part is plastic currently. If the missing pieces were there I would use a plastic epoxy and leave it be.

    I suggested having it duplicated in aluminum.

    I have a wooden one now and I don’t like it.

    I may switch to 11 degree for the leg joints after speaking with Shawn, debating it for the back rails since I have a tight clearance there currently.

    I emailed Shawn and these are 11 degree tapers. I'm using 6 degrees for posts and so I'm tempted to stick with it, I prefer a shallow taper to a quick taper.

    I have a 12.8 degree taper from Lee...

    Awesome, thanks gents. Paul, I emailed him but they look to be 6 degrees to me, good pricing too.
  10. Anyone making HSS/Carbide 6 degree reamers?

    My googling is failing me at the moment. I'm looking to replace the wooden reamer commonly used for windsor chair making with a steel version of it. I much prefer steel reamers.

    In any case,...

    If you're dead set on resawing it then do so and you'll learn a lot about the board in short order, it very well may come out perfectly but personally I wouldn't do it because I expect that when the...

    Chip, this comes up pretty commonly but a nice solution to this is to simply cut a rabbet on both sides of the end and make the board so that it can fit into a slot made by a typical router bit.

    Those matches we’re probably sawn wet, then dried and retained as a boule. When you resaw really wide, dry material, often enough it will not behave well.

    Can a Roubo frame saw be made wide enough to deal with a 24” wide board.

    I agree with Prashun, I like keeping wide boards wide but there is a strong possibility that this turns the material into a...

    Ron, if Gary is still selling his CNC Bridgeport mill, might be worth your inquiry. I would imagine that very relevant to saw making, if that's what you have in mind for this.

    Snipe is greatly reduced by good jointing as well. I pay very close attention to that and have had to do precious little adjustment to the planer, only tweaking it here and there to get closer to...

    That’s what he says, but really it can be adjusted to being next to nothing. I can usually remove ‘snipe’ in one hand plane pass and often enough I just leave the board slightly long and trim the...

    - Use the shortest bit possible.

    We can never make it past safety. Safety is interesting to an extent, but it’s well covered here. I generally raise the blade up but rely upon blade choice to make a high quality cut.

    Just be glad I’m not afraid of milling machines :D

    I make kumiko and I know some people who use a tablesaw to bring it to thickness, I use a planer and every joint fits identically when complete.
