Before I attempt my next log conversion, it occurred to me that rather than suffer in (excusing the odd swear word) silence, to ask you for your suggestions as to how to keep it up. The log of course!

So far my best results have come from sitting a log on a parallel set of runners fixed together at either end, combined with (2X) as large a piece of ply as possible (between the runners) which acts as a square whilst in contact with the table. These pieces of ply are screwed to the end faces of the log. The whole (Heath Robinson) contraption slides over the table as the cut advances.

This works ok but when the end ply pieces leave the table inevitably the log wanders away from square.

My BS 300 is limited to about 190mm depth of cut so I can't go too heavy on the runners.

Does any one have a sledge (?) / support design that I could use in my quest for reasonably square boards?

Cheers,

Dicky Mint

OK Alf

How can you possibly put this on your web site?

'Cos it's true? :whistle: How can it be a collection? It's all worth zip, I never dust any of it, and I use them. QED. :wink:

Cheers, Alf

this might be of interest to you - still working great!

Tony thanks for the link, what a great modification, COOL 8)

Please feel free to come down to Dorset and mod' my band saw, I'll put the kettle on, stand over your shoulder, draw breath sharply in through pursed lips, then check the small print in the warranty booklet to see if the warranty still is ok on the paint finish. :D

Many thanks,

Dicky.
