    Not a Saw Stop

    Did some experimenting on my Jet SS10 table saw. Used my right thumb to test how fast the blade would stop, and my theory proved correct. Looks like a long night in the ER. Not too bad though, I don’t mean my thumb. Got a big cup of coffee to pacify me.

    4000!

    I'm celebrating by indulging in another cup of coffee! This is my 4000th post in the forum, but even with CrealBilly in a semi-retired state from the forum, I'll never catch that boy--and speaking of Jeff, I do miss his wit and wisdom. With his homesteading activities in southern Illinois these...

So here's to...

    SCROLLERS MEETINGS CANCELLED

    I guess I'm jumping onto the hysteria bandwagon, but in view of the uncertainty of the over-hyped coronavirus, meetings of THE SCROLL SAW CLUB OF THE FOOTHILLS are canceled until things are under control. Many of our members are in that risky age factor class, and none of us wants to see any...

    PHENOLIC ADHESIVES?

    Before I start cutting and making some jigs from 1/2" phenolic, what adhesives if any, have any of you used with phenolic? CA is the only adhesive I have on hand that will work, but I'm leary of using it on larger applications. Also, I still have a number of sheets of 1/2" phenolic to sell...

    NEW WORKSHOP IDEA?

    Saw Tri4Sale's query about 3D printers, and it got me to thinking; I'm sure there are many of us that are curious enough about 3D printers and what they are, what they can do, and would one be practical in any of our shops. Perhaps someone on here has a 3D printer that would like to hold a...
