Topic: Saw Stop saw Horse power
Posted: Thursday, March 31, 2016 7:51:55 AM
I feel the same on the building false security. But as this is my first chance to get a new tool in the room in 23 years and the Sawstop part is the tipping point, it is hard to pass up. Even though thankfully the table saw has never caused more then a few bruises in my room.

As soon as I told the kids half of them wanted to test the system. My simpliest warning was its like birth control it works almost all the time but when it does not your world really changes.

Topic: Lathe suggestions?
Posted: Saturday, May 30, 2015 3:10:31 PM
I just purchased a Rikon last week from woodcraft. I have one at home also. My one suggestion if you purchase any mini lathe with an indexing headstock remove the pin and replace with a short bolt as it might save your machine. I have a mixture of jet and steel city mini's now all in various state of decay. One thing you really need to stress in your instruction is to loosen the adjustment locks before trying to tighten or loosen something. I still can not get kids to do this.
Topic: Student Exhibitions

I have entered students work into the Gov. Art Show which is coming up soon. There are a couple other schools that enter also. I have done alright entering and there is a lot of scholarship money available. The students are competing against art students and there is not a direct woodworking section but mixed media and sculpture usually work depending on the piece. if you look under the winners section there are pictures of former top 25 winners and many of them are wood or wood based.
I was the Woodworking judge for the state fair but the Tech Ed group has gone to all STEM based stuff.
Also I know that the OTEEA (ohio technology Engineering Educators) in your area may do some sort of regional.
Where in Ohio are you? Columbus area here. If I can help more let me know.

Thanks the reply. My biggest concern is what horsepower I can get away with. I know the bigger the better but It will be hard to get 5000 versus a 350 dollar repair/replacement of a fence.

Ok , I know we have talked saw stop and table saws to death. My uni-fence has cracked on my Delta so I am going to try and use this to get a new saw as a fence is about 539 dollar, I can not find the parts to replace the really old one.
So my question is what version saw stop are you all using? HP etc?

What about getting some 5/4 popular and resawing it down to 1/2 inch. Two for one.
Topic: Kayak
Posted: Monday, August 25, 2014 2:13:12 PM
Hi All welcome back to school. Last year I inquired on here if anyone had any experience with building kayaks. A teacher from Michigan responded. I can not find the information or the thread anymore. If anyone has any experience plans or does this in Michigan let me know. I have a senior that wants to build one. He switched to a slide in truck camper last year.
