    It's not exactly redundant to apply SealCoat first then the garnet shellac. Yes they will melt together, but the SealCoat will fill up the thirsty pores and help reduce blotching as long as you...

    I wasn't suggesting the machines were at fault Eric, but the springs they put on it were. John L. proved that by changing the spring on his MM20; 18ksi with the factory spring, 30 ksi with an...

    That has been proven to not always be true. Some well respected folks are making exterior door panels with a plywood core, fairly thick hardwood glued on both sides, and then skinned with two layers...

    Several of the vaunted Euro machines struggle to put 25 ksi on blades the manufacturer says they can handle. Do they cut OK at 18 or even 15 ksi? Sure, but as you said, not nearly as well as they...

    Eric, Lennox rates their blades for tensions up to 30 ksi, at least the carbide one I use. My friend has the same G0636X as I with the same 1" Woodmaster CT blade on it with 25 ksi on it. He never...

    I would do it flat on your workbench. I'd start with the same thickness of wood as you plan to use for the show side, but not blocks, rather just simple boards a few inches wide. You could pre glue...

    It wasn't even close, John. When I had 42 ksi on the 1" blade the spring still had a lot of air between the coils. Grizzly claims the G0636X can tension a 1-3/8" blade. Extrapolating my...

    An inexpensive, simple to make, and accurate tension gauge is a great help to those of us less gifted. I can report that on my Grizzly G0636X it's really easy to over tension a 1" carbide blade. I...

    That won't be an issue with India Ink; it'll be jet black regardless of grain orientation. Knots and sap, however, might be a problem. If that turns out to be true, then a gel stain or something...

    India ink followed by GF's High Performance. Can all be done with a brush. All bets are off if there are any knots, however. In any case, test on scrap.

    Young's Modulus x blade stretch / caliper opening = psi

    That's correct. You are directly measuring the tension in the band. Also correct, the top and bottom pieces of wood are not connected. The dowel pin only loosely fits in the hole in the upper...

    Well you said you don't want to build anything, but if you change your mind here's the gauge I made. I use it to check the tension on my BS and my sawmill. It works as well as a commercial meter...

    Arm-R-Seal, Waterlox, or any other OB varnish you like. As much as I like WB products, it's hard to beat oil based varnish for durability.

    Arm-R-Seal uses urethane resin so my guess is MinWax Wipe On Poly will stick equally as well to Seal-A-Cell. But of course do a test panel first to confirm.
