    The Blasco method is almost zero cost Robert. Depending on your perspective the Carter stabiliser isn't too bad either at i think around $80 - much cheaper than the main guides they do...

    Mitre slots on bandsaws are an interesting phenomenon Robert - the UK spec NRA 600 Agazzani (pretty much the B-24) doesn't have one at all. I've managed just fine using various triangular ply right...

    There's been a lot of discussion over the years about running very narrow blades on large (typically Italian) low wheel camber band saws - my inclination would be to do some research before changing...

    There's write ups on the outline of how bimetal and carbide tipped blades are made in these links - the methods may or may not be standard in the industry:

    For sure reports suggest that smaller saws seem to run into problems with bending/stressing the thicker gauge bands on most (not necessarily all - but check the thickness/gauge and dig out the...

    Hi P. You probably know, but a reasonable quality and decent sized drawing square will often function as a very accurate 90 deg and 45 deg reference.

    Another route is to use a drawing compass to...

    The need for a back (clearance side) bevel on plane irons will in many respects diminish in direct proportion to how good a job we do on our back flattening (and honing) I suspect Stewie...

    I'm a relatively recent recruit to more serious hand tool preparation, but won't necessarily offer a simple one size fits all answer to the question.

    You've i'm sure seen a lot more than me Erik, but poor blade choice has to be another variable so far as the potential for blade overloading/fatigue is concerned.

    It seems to come up time and...

    Agree (as on the other thread) that de-tensioning in as much as its necessary in the case of a given tyre type and material is likely about protecting the tyre - polymers/plastics in general have...

    PS thought just prompted by the tension gauge thread. Judging by the fits it caused an old lighter duty (still claimed to be 'professional') saw i had due to frame flexing - a deep cut, tough wood,...

    It seems unlikely as above that the correct operating blade tension will raise the stress high enough (close to double the normal max tension in the case of a carbide blade) to lead to fatigue issues...

    That fits well Brian. A reground blade (depending on the type) as well as risking nicks in the gullets will likely have more fatigue cycles/use on it too and for both reasons be more likely to fail -...

    Unmodified epoxies were never regarded as great glass bonders. They will make a bond, but over time (with metal parts anyway) tended to come apart as a result of not being able to handle the stresses...
