Rodney-Thanks for taking the time to post all that stuff. Some interesting DIY ideas!

Some new stuff there Rodney that I'd not seen before.
Another tip I read recently is...If you have been using a bandsaw blade to cut curves Don;t use it for cutting straight lines because it wont like it. use another blade. :)

I love the 'speed square on the bandsaw' method!

I’ll be trying this out

Except that speed squares are notoriously not square. Unless you shell out for a very expensive one.

These are all fun to look at. And good to remember there's always more than one way to skin a cat. (no cats were harmed during this posting)

Good tip on the band saw blade Ken. Lets keep the tips and insights coming!

Okay, this is cool- fold, insert, and pull to tear sandpaper into smaller pieces!

Yes, but even if you have the perfect square, band saws tend to wander to the right (or left depending on your perspective). The dreaded "coriolis effect" rears its ugly head yet again. True fences for band saws must take into account the wander effect and compensate for it depending on the saw and blade which has to be determined. The whole thing makes my head hurt so I just cut by eye.

Great stuff fur sure. It is almost too much to process. Very good ideas... However, one thing I don't think is a good idea is this one. Dangerous and not good on the blade. Do not do this one at home...

This is actually how to sharpen a saw blade using a diamond wheel. A sled with runners that fit your table saw slots, and a pin to rotate the blade you are sharpening. I guess some of these pics are not obvious.

Bench height would not work for me. OK if you are a joiner or cabinet maker (European terms - look them up if you are in there US because I don't know the equivalents...). I have mine a couple of inches below so my forearm held in the horizontal position. I want to get into a near upright position when using hand tools. A bench that low in the diagram would generate back pain in about 15 minutes and I'm short guy at just 66" tall - in fact I am the tallest dwarf in Wales!.
