A quick video of the Lancaster Bomber being cut out.  I don’t want to think how long it took this video to actually get done – so many delays, so few windows of opportunity to work on it!  I decided to cut my losses and just put together what I had, rather than stress too […]

(A slight delay in the SundayCNC post!) The Australian Animal series, from MakeCNC.com (scroll down a bit to the Australian Animals) A really nice set of designs, with some real standout patterns.  By far and away, the Sulphur Crested Cockatoo is the most impressive, at least in my opinion.  However, it was the Echidna that […]

As mentioned recently, I had an opportunity to demonstrate the SawStop Industrial (5HP) to a group from the Instrumentation & Technology Development Facility (Monash Instrumentation Facility), and the Faculty of Science, both from Monash University. The following video was taken and edited by Steve Morton, from the Scientific Imaging Service within the Faculty of Science, […]

This episode uses one of the MLIS (Multiple Layer Inlay Stencils) from Tarter Woodworking. Good product, great results, and a very realistic price to boot.  What’s not to love?

We all know the idiom about book-smarts versus street-smarts, and it holds just as true (if not more-so) for woodworking as any other pursuit. You can read and read about a topic, watch all the videos, follow the forums and talk with experts, but I can still guarantee the first time you pick up a […]

Had a look at the blade(s) after the fact, and found out where the significant cascading sound comes from when the brake activates.  12 separate tungsten carbide teeth ripped loose of the blade.  Most presumably are due to the spacer blades not being in direct contact with the aluminium brake, so were able to move […]

At the wood show last weekend, I got to set off the SawStop mechanism, not once, but 3 times. Funnily enough, I was quite tentative about it the first time – we are talking about an extremely violent reaction at massive speed. However, in practice it was a lot quieter and more gentle than I […]

There is something to be said for forced intermissions.  Both longer term with the whole relocation, as well a current, temporary one, where I have needed some distractions to fill in some relatively immobile time.
