From everything that I have read and heard you want a lower tooth count for re-sawing so the 1/2" blade looked perfect! I went ahead an picked up the 1/8" blade too while I was there. They showed up tonight so I plan on giving them a test this weekend on my Craftsman 1/3 hp 3.5 amp 10" Band Saw (21400). I'll write another article when I get the chance to test them out. In the mean time here is a quick look at them.
It rained most of the weekend so I wasn't able to work on the coffee table that I had planned on so I put a finish on the Ice Chest Cooler Box that I made last month for the baby shower. The red had darkened with age so I gave it a quick sand with 120 grit sandpaper before putting on 2 coats of indoor\outdoor spar urethane.
Please leave a comment below and let me know what you think of the finished product!
I recently picked up an antique Stanley Mitre Box no. 358 with an Atkins back saw from a friend at work. It used to belong to his dad and he found it in a shelf in his garage a couple of months ago. I think that this thing is really, really neat and I plan on cleaning it up and trying it out. Does anybody out there know of a good cleaner that I can use on this with out messing up the patina? I want it functional and clean looking but I don't want to lose any of it's rustic charm.
