    Lee you just need a longer thread on the tension screw. Put a metal shim under it, where the screw sits against the upper casting. That will give you more effective screw length. 93-1/2" is the...

    Certainly GF's White Poly can be tinted to at least pastel colors with UTC's. Whether or not it can be tinted to deep saturated colors is a question I don't have the answer for but I suspect it...

    A New Dehumidification Kiln

    I have a solar wood kiln that I use to dry rough sawn lumber. It works well from May to October. So what about the other 6 months of the year? Well, it's pretty useless here in western NY. Wood...

    Your math skills seem fine to me Lee and, yes, the thickness of the blade is important as it's half of the parameters required to calculate the cross sectional area of the blade and, therefore, the...

    Your math is correct, Lee. If the spring you are talking about is for a 14" cast iron Delta, or clone, you would only be able to apply 15 ksi to a 3/8" or narrower blade. While the spring may be...

    You don't need large wheels to get a deep cut. A 19" upright shop bandsaw will cut nearly 19" between the blade and frame. My sawmill has 19" wheels yet can only cut 7" deep. The difference is in...

    Lots of people do it that way, Jebediah, but when you run into problems you have no clue if the tension is high enough. Blindly adjusting tension is like driving without a speedometer. Fortunately,...

    Well the prices for hardwood is up where I live, substantially. I talked with the guy I normally buy from when I don't have what I need from my own milling/drying operation. He said most everything...

    What's the tension? Using the saw's indicator is pretty much useless unless you calibrated it against a tension meter.

    Low tension. With enough tension the guides do little, including the rear thrust bearing.
    Wrong blade for the job.
    Maybe both.

    I think you've got two different problems. If the motor doesn't run at full power the blade won't cut as fast but it should still cut straight unless you are over feeding it. Obviously, replace the...

    The wood in the photo could be anything; doesn't look like walnut to me, QS or otherwise. If it's the color she likes then how about rift sawn white oak? Just gorgeous linear grain, and you can dye...

    Brian, I'd be more inclined to use ProClassic if I had to spray onsite just because it dries and cures a lot faster. Whatever you spray you'll need to mask off everything nearby. The setup details...

    That is really well done. Congrats. 60 hours seems pretty efficient, too, or would be for me anyway. It's not often black walnut has to play second fiddle but that Wenge sure looks great and pairs...

    Maple has really, really poor weather resistance. I wouldn't use it for the proposed application, but if you are undaunted then I recommend you use an epoxy sealer followed by Epifanes marine...

    You don't want to use construction lumber. It's not kiln dried to the 6 - 8% you need for furniture. It will give you nothing but heartache. Forget HD/Lowes, etc. and find a local lumber supplier....
