    Band Saw Blade Recommendations

    Thank you everyone for your helpful feedback. From what I'm reading the Woodslicer is a dedicated resaw blade, correct? Not for cutting curves. How are the general purpose blades from Highland compared to the Lenox Diemaster from Woodcraft Bands?

    Happy birthday GeorgeL

    Jatoba - how does it weather?

    I'm in the process of building a Jatoba deck. The portion you see here has been installed for about 6 weeks. Some boards checked, most did not. A few boards cupped, most did not. A lot depends on the type of fasteners used. The finish used is Messmer's UV Oil. This photo was take in the...

    Replacing deck boards

    Mike, Take a look at the Camo hidden deck fastening system. It is less expensive than the Kreg jig and does not require pre-drilling. George

    computer cleansing

    Robert, Doing it yourself is the best way to learn. This is by no means a complete step-by-step tutorial, but just a few things I've learned over the years. While your computer is still running: Backup, copy or move any file you wish to keep to a second hard drive. This includes documents...

    First Pen

    Ken, I'm not a pen turner but I have disassembled MANY a pen using the HF punch set. To remove the transmission you must first remove the nib. To do this you must find the punch that fits through the hole in the trans but will not fit through the nib. When you find the right punch you will...

    CA Pen finish question

    Mike, You mention that you see open grain. Is this the whole pen or just patches? If you are seeing round or oval patches, you sanded through the CA. More than likely because the pen barrel is slightly out of round. Between Thanksgiving and Christmas I watched Alex do 50+ CA finishes. He...
