He doesn't tend to visit the forum every day, judging by his past post history. You could try Private Messaging him - if he's set up to get email notification of PMs you might get his attention sooner.
Sorry, been away travelling. This week was Durban and Cape Town. sitting at airport now on way home.
I need to trim some stock to try it out. Just completed lot of doorstops & animals & alphabet.
(For someone who has only 10 official working days left, I am extremely busy at work.)
Will post some when I do the puzzle.
(we are now into summer 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) , so need to spend some time "outdoors" as well)
Alf , i have quite a busy job and not lots of time for Forums during the week. The Company does not like private surfing.
Weekends, there are a few more personal hours, but then i also need some time in the workshop .......
and garden .....
and shops .......
When i retire end of month, won't be much more spare time at this stage.
Bob, glued up some pieces today and will give it a bash next weekend.
"Ckicken Man" decided that at this stage PINE would be appropriate as there are lots of scraps, and a cock-up not that expensive.
Phil, sorry you had trouble cutting the puzzle out.
First thing, the table and the blade have to be square, next the blade had to be tight and last you have to cut it real slow, let the blade do the work.
Don't feel bad my first one wouldn't come apart either.
I don't know how thick of wood you used but mine was 1 3/8" X 1 3/8".
Don't give up you can do it.
Bob, stupid question, BUT what is this "clear wrapping tape"?
Do you wrap the block or the blade?
My machine is cutting better after setting table and blade.
Also did some major repair work on the "head stock".
Had to make new hold pieces, drill and tap new screw holes. Seems to hold blade lot better. I still struggle to cut Oak (20mm), get a lot of burning. Kiaat works very well.
Lin, looked at that pattern you posted. At this stage i think i will stick to the "simple life"!
However, will get there .......
