    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!







    Super good tip:

    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.
