(Mark & Juanita) doth lament:
<snip> BTW, I discovered that my my Freud tablesaw blade is capable of
milling soft steel this weekend. Hint: When making shallow cuts using a
tennoning jig, make sure that your tennoning jig has a sacrificial
spacer if your tennoning cut will be less than 1/8" (3.1 mm). I now have
a nice 1 1/2" radius arc on the face plate of mine. It took a moment for
me to realize
a) the cut was getting awfully hard and b) I was getting sparks <snip>
I've never damaged any of my jigs. Unintentionally that is. But,
I'm a believer in trying to be prepared, just in case, so none of my
jigs have any metal in them. 100% glue fastening.
I am not paranoid. I do not "think" people are after me. I "know" damn
well they're after me.
