    Holy cow, about $900 for that. It looks well made and maybe it has its place for folks who only need to make small quantities of veneer, etc, and with a lot of patience to glue the stock to the...

    I don't think anyone is suggesting that drift is solved by high tension, certainly not me. But once your saw is set up to cut straight adequate tension makes it easier for the blade to cut straight...

    Oh, yes I did. Thanks for catching that. It now reads the correct value of 0.10".

    Geez, that doesn't look near as bad as I had envisioned from your first post. Have you tried buffing it with a power buffer or buffing pad on your ROS?

    I don't know what the tension is on your saw at the 1" mark, but on mine it's 24 ksi. Actually, I think I do know, and it's not 24 ksi. The FB 510 can't apply that much on a 1" blade with...
  6. Slicing Veneer with the Amazing Woodmaster CT

    After the recent discussion about resaw blades, I thought I would show some photos I took today slicing some walnut veneer. Here's a photo of my bandsaw, with an auxiliary tall fence, roller feather...

    I would think T&T would come off easier with mineral spirits than DNA.

    Oh, I've finished lots of things with Danish oil and similar products, followed by paste wax. They look and feel great. None of them were a dining table, however, or a piece that would get wiped...

    Because wax adds no real protection, often attracts fingerprints and dirt, and can turn hazy when applied too heavily. Osmo is an in the wood finish. If you apply wax on top you likely will apply...

    I would not want to be w/o my miter sled. No miter gage comes close to supporting the work as well, or having a built in ZCI. I built it 30 years ago and it still cuts 90.0 deg, without fail.

    Jim's advice is spot on. The thing I'll add is that if the top looks terrible there's nothing to lose by removing the wax. I don't think it will harm the Polyox but even if it does it's better than...

    ApplePly is similar to BB and made in Oregon. Before the pandemic it was substantially more expensive than BB. I looked at their website and it says they are no longer accepting new orders because...

    Hi Rich,

    I've had cats for 40 years and never had one scratch a piece of finished furniture. Unfinished wood - definitely, but never anything with paint or varnish on it. Unless those cats have...

    This idea should work well since I need to add wood plates behind the brackets anyway to space out the handrail beyond the window casing part way up the staircase. Thanks very much.

  18. Anyone know of a removable handrail system?

    I've been asked to install a new handrail on a very narrow set of stairs in an old house. The owner wants the handrail to be removable so they can bring bedding, etc. up/down the stairs. My first...

    The OneFinity X-50 Woodworker has a 32 x 32" cut area. It costs $2329 with the controller. Add a display, or spare laptop like I did, a Makita palm router, the X-Y-Z probe, and a joypad and you are...

    Hard to tell for sure but that blade looks to have a high tpi count, far more than I would use for sawing veneer.

    Many of us have found two to be a good compromise. A larger one with a wider, aggressive blade for ripping and resawing, and a smaller one for everything else. FWIW, my smaller one gets most of the...

    IMO there's no reason you can't make due with a chainsaw for cutting out bowl blanks. A bandsaw makes them nice and round, but that's not a major requirement, especially with a big powerful lathe. ...
