    Chinese laser purchase/Shenui/Laserworks tips and tricks thread

    Thread Starter: Rodne Gold

    Considering a lot of us are going or have gone that direction , I thought it a good idea to combine our knowledge pool in one thread. So I have started one. Those of you that have already posted to other threads can perhaps repeat and consolidate the posts here or at least point to other posts on...

    Heat damage to blades when grinding...

    Thread Starter: ian maybury

    Brian's thread on choice of chisels just set me thinking. I'd always thought it was just that I was using cheap chisels, but it starts to look like even good quality chisels sail pretty close to the wind so far as edge damage is concerned when working hardwoods. My white steels don't much like...

    Safety poll: Do you use the guard on your tablesaw?

    Thread Starter: Frederick Skelly

    It will seem nuts to some of you, but Ive never used a tablesaw that has a guard. Every one has always been just "bare blade". I occasionally use a home made splitter. Im thinking its time to mend my ways before I get hurt and have to mend my hand. But I got curious and wanted to poll the community...

    More Beech Plane Ideas?

    Thread Starter: David Weaver

    I've got some beech left, enough to make two more planes. I think I'll probably make another jointer with the one stick because I don't have the heart to cut it down. With the other, I'm either going to save it to make a few dais, or make another jack sized plane. I don't want to make pointless...

    Call from "Windows"

    Thread Starter: Bruce Volden

    I just rcv'd a call from Microsoft Windows. They kindly let me know my pc was slow and had viruses! Has anyone else rcv'd such call? The kind man from India had me do some things to my keyboard so that he could "take over" my pc and fix all my problems! I did as he instructed---several...

    Do you have woodworking knowledge you're just dying to share?
    Want to be an author at Sawmill Creek?

    Now you have a new area to publish articles!

    If you want to publish an article, you can join our authors group, which gives you access to a forum which is open only to would-be authors at SawmillCreek. This is a staging area for new articles, where you can post a new article, and we'll review for publication. Once you're ready to publish it, we'll promote it on the front page of SawmillCreek!


    The process is simple:

    1. Join the Authors group by visiting this page.
    2. Once you have access, visit the Authors forum.
    3. Start your article by creating a new thread in that forum.


    TIPS

    If your article is too long for a single post, don't fret ! Spread your article over multiple posts, and we'll merge them together into a single post when the article is ready to be published.

    Try posting pictures inline for visual interest.

    Choose a catchy, yet descriptive title!

    Writer's Block?

    We're looking for tool reviews, woodworking tips, woodturning techniques, jigs and fixtures, finished projects step-by-step, finishing techniques, social woodworking experiences, and even good compilations of our existing thread topics.

    Good luck and Happy writing!
