    Hi Preston. The Incra Miter gauge for all its simplicity has in fact been amazingly precise. It stays as set for months after month.

    Just wondering if the typical polyurethane, polystyrene and extruded polystyrene/styrofoam insulation panels and also PVC cladding/facing can be cut to size on a panel saw. Wondering if they cut...

    On flatness/straightness of edges, and the rabbit hole that is sharpening.

    I suspect it again comes down to what the iron is intended for Mike. If the camber is used to square joint the edge of a board then it's got to pay to use a profile that deliveres a predictable...

    It's been said before, and i'd leave it to others more experienced to make recommendations on specific camber amounts Mike (but broadly it's got to correlate with the required maximum depth of cut...

    Doug sounds like a very nice example of how bandsaws create differing realities for different users. Even a good example of a medium sized bandsaw used sensitively can be a very precise tool (in the...

    It could be imagined that a high end saw with very expensive electronics ought to have over voltage and whatever other protection is advisable built in. What with lightning, the big factory down the...

    A heavy bandsaw with a heavily tensioned carbide blade can definitely resaw accurately and effectively - but i don't think anybody said that it could shave a hair off an already cut surface.

    Hi Mark, thanks for that. The adhesive looks like it could do the job. Amazed to see Loctite offering a relatively commodity product like that - not a hope back in the 80s when i worked for them when...
