    LOL Hi Colin,
    I re-sawed a scrap piece of 6/4" of Walnut this afternoon just to see what the cutting was like and it zipped right through it. S far, so good. I am waiting on some Purple Heart and Cherry to get here for cutting boards and once I get at processing the boards for them I will have the chance to test the saw again. LOL Oh the drama...
    Your invitation to sharpen some of your saws is greatly appreciated and I know you are just trying expand my tool maintenance horizons but I must respectfully decline your offer. I'll leave it at that.


    Cheers Colin,

    I'm brand new to woodworking and just purchased my first table saw, it actually hasn't arrive yet but should be here any day. I plan on making a zero clearance insert for it but was wondering about something. Why aren't they standard issue when buying a new saw? It seems like everybody always talks about either purchasing or making one so why is it they all seem to come with a "standard" throat plate instead of a zero clearance plate? Thanks.

    Hi Gents,

    just as Colin said for the glue. The Elmers Glue is half the price of the 3M 77 and for your sand paper, I get all of mine from an Auto Parts Company. The higher grits, 320 to 3500 are 3M paper which is an excellent grade of sand paper. I'm going to guess that you want this for sharpening your chisels and plane irons and if so, this line of paper is very affordable and what I would recommend. I use the Scary Sharp process for all of my edged tools and I am extremely happy with the results.

    Anyone know where to get self-adhesive paper in grits from course(180) through really fine: 1000,1200 and up?

    That's probably a question for the paint supplier, whether to prime or not, but unless the prime comes in very small quantities, or you already have some, I don't think it's needed. If it was on metal, then yes, but wood already has a great "tooth" to hold paint, so I don't see a lot of advantage.
