  1. All I can say is a great bunch of guys here, I too have been fortunate enough to win the $500. certificate that I used to help buy the Supermax drum sander from Laguna. I sold the Performax I had to a club member and with the gift certificate the Supermax only cost me $200. Also Handy Dan even sent me a desktop pen set he turned,plus a 30-06 pen pencil set in trade for a wooden plane. We also have to thank John for making all this possible. Herb
  2. Yours look better than anything I ever made,Keith. On the drawer slides ,I do 1/4"X1/4" and put the groove in the drawer sides, then after the face is on the box make some 1/4X1/4 strips,put them in the slots with a piece of paper behind them in the slot for clearance, put a little glue on the face and slide them carefully into the case. when the glue is dry pull them out and remove the paper strips, they should slide easily.

  3. Thanks for the best wishes, it is all healed now and barely visible where it was cut. Herb
  4. You are absolutely right,Al, I only use it for crosscuts, and my table saw is for ripping. When I am already set up ripping and need to crosscut a board, it is just a matter of walking over and whacking it off. If I have a lot of short pieces to cross cut it is faster on the RA saw. Herb
  5. It is a dangerous saw for those who don't know how to use it. I have seen many times people ripping in the wrong direction and the saw grabbing and putting the board thru the wall. But it is like any power tool,they have to be used correctly and safely. I love mine and will never part with it. Herb
  6. Long ago my dentist used one of them to pull a molar, at least it felt like it! Herb
  7. I have done it with soaking the banding,(solid oak 3/8"X 1 1/2"W in wet towels pouring hot water on them. It raises the grain when dry,but can be sanded back smooth. Watch the grain ,it will want to split sometimes ,try to bend the same way the grain is running, The straps are a good idea. You might try to make a form smaller than the actual piece and bend them around that because you are going to get some spring back when you release the clamp. Scarf joints is the best way to go, as mentioned above. Herb
  8. Sorry to hear that Lissa, I hope that your hands return to normal after they operate. Hang in there Gal!. Herb
  9. Ever thought of a hole saw? they have extenders for them too. if you use one spray WD40 on the saw and it will saw easier and not burn or plug up. Herb
  10. They are setup gauges for setting the heights of blades an bits. They can have other uses too. Herb
  11. Inspired by this thread, right before Christmas I got busy and glued up a bunch of scraps for future projects. Herb Pictures not in order!
  12. Congratulations to all the winners,and also to all you generous members, to me this is what Christmas is all about. There are a great bunch of guys on this forum. Al, you are going to have to give us a review of the bandsaw after you get it set up. Herb
