    Dye Question

    George, does the dye penetrate so deeply that you can turn the pieces after dyeing? If you dye after turning, how do you keep it off the light-colored separation pieces?

    Thanks, Norm

    I see little use for spending part of your "start-up" money for a jointer. I have an 8-inch longbed model and rarely use it. Instead use just a small portion of the money for a quality saw blade. ...
