I bought an Industrial Radial Arm Saw. Do I pull it toward me to cut wood or do I push it? It seems that if I pull it, it could ride up on top of the board. I don't want to be a casualty because of ignorance! If the blade is turning clockwise when looking at it from the left side, it seems I should push it into the wood. Help!
I've got a closet in my spare bedroom (storage room) that I wanted to add another clothes hanger rod to. Among my scrap pieces I had two 1.25" diameter closet rod sections that together would be long enough, but neither was long enough on their own. The distance to span is roughly 22". This is a CNC-cut splice joint I came up with to solve the problem. Test cut on smaller scraps shown in the photos. I'm calling it my radial finger joint. Finished spliced rod now loaded with clothes and seems to be able to handle the weight with no complaint. If it does fail eventually I'll report back. 4D
Drilling a 4" circle in a hunk of ply it hit a hard spot and yanked it outta my hand. WhiZZZ BANG into my right side of the solar plexus. Knocked the daylights outta me. I got the machine shut down and then shock set in. I was a little dazed for a bit. Got a really nice bloody welt for my runner up prize. Full One Horse Motor too. To drill the rest of the holes ( there are lots of 'em) I set up a capture for the boards. Don't gotta tell me twice. It's an error that - - - well - - - wouldn't have happened on my old DP because the column would have stopped it And there's my thing. I have an obsolete habit that was fine under the older conditions. But this DP is a big Radial and the rules are all different. Gotta learn the new rules.
