Sometimes I only need an 8 inch flat sheet of new bands. Sometimes I need 1 item from a slingshot site Shipping is fearfully taxing Jul 25, 2021 at 3:23 PM

        I know shipping prices really suck. Is it anything you can get through Amazon? What are you needing?

        Best way to use router is when You have router cutter with guide bearing and one perfect template.

      By the way Trying to decide on a frame choice to build Fiddling with designs is painstaking Can take longer than the build itself

      Rubber shrinks in heat. Would that mean Ocularis plugs shrink? Not like I couldn't fold a set of bands or use a bigger bearing Curious

        I have to tune the active length to a certain feel for me and see if it’s hitting where I want it too at that distance I am shooting

        i usually cut my bands at 35 cms long, but depending on the brand i'll have to adjust, so i don't bother measuring my draw anymore...

        If it takes a half hour its not going to happen. Maybe the file is to large.

        Fractured rib is not fun. Never want one of those again. Also, I broke someone’s playing basketball once. I felt so bad about it. I didn’t purposely do it. What made it worse was the man was ill.
        Take care. Hope you can get to sleep at night.

      I picked up a WEN 3939t tabletop band saw recently and have found it to be very useful , especially with hard to find 1/8" blades. They're fragile but you can turn essentially within the thickness of the blade in pretty thick material if you're slow and let the tooth set do the work. I've been using it to make ILF bow grips as well as other chores for my crafty bride. :)

      How big is your scroll saw? I've got a 15 inch. Just not big enough or buying bad blades. Spend lots trying to cut anything.

        Most of my saws sit in a box now that I have a bandsaw
        It's just the fine corners and hard to rwa h places would cut so much nicer with the scroll saw

        I used a Craftsman 15" for about 20 years. Just bought a WEN 10" bandsaw and didn't realize what I had been missing all these years. But I did make tons of stuff with the scroll saw. Loving the new bandsaw but like you said, the scroll saw has its place.

        I first tried straight trim bits and about sniped my hands off. Found 1/4" spiral down flush trim bits on Amazon and they worked great. Still need to be careful, but worked much better than straight bits.
