I'd like to be the first to welcome all our members to The Patriot's Pulse. Given the activity we have had recently, and all the great suggestions our members have had, we have decided to open up a forum where all of your suggestions and concerns can be gathered in one place, and hashed out for the betterment of our woodworking community. So when you get that flash of brilliance as many of our members have, regarding a great way to improve our community, you now have a home to spill your thoughts and ideas out into. I know many ideas regarding our community have been spoken of throughout our forums, if you will, can you please re-hash those ideas here so that we may all discuss and share our thoughts about them. I think I have finally lost track of all the wonderful ideas for improving our community. They are at this time scattered throughout the forums, so please bring them here, into the Patriot's Pulse! Remember, this community belongs to you, and the more you participate, the better off we all are. Welcome again to your new Patriot's Pulse
I have a few questions about hole saws. I'm trying to find a faster way to cut round blank for coasters. The coasters will have fretwork designs cut into them, then glued to a cork coaster. My current preferred size is 3 1/2" diameter. 1. smoother cut, Is there any brand that YOU have used that has a smooth finish? Yes, I understand that most of these are for rough carpentery, still. 2. I am using a DP to cut the blanks, so speed adjustment can be fairly precise. Do I need to go faster (within the limits for the size) or slower? 3. Have any of you modified the teeth on a hole saw? results? resharpened? (I am considering using a pair of vise grips to reduce the set of the teeth. 4. The hole saw I am currently using is listed as a 3 5/8 OD and was said to have an inside diameter of 3 1/2, but it's more like 3 7/16, other than changing the set of the teeth could I file a small amount form the inside of the teeth to make a precise size? Thanks in Advance
