Put down your remote controls, I didn't put the wire wheel on the tablesaw.
I ended up finishing things with the lathe, without incedent. About half of
you thought it would be okay, half of you thought it would be insulting to
the saw (these kinda choked me up, you guys know how to hurt a guy) about a
third of you wanted to know what the hell I was doing to good redwood and
about a quarter of you wanted to know what I'd been drinking.
China headed you all off at the pass. I *thought*
that the wheel was good
for 6,000 RPM... I was correct... The worn out wheel that was good for 6,000
rpm, got tossed out last month. The *new*
wheel, with either a picture of
Homer Simpson, or perhaps some guy wearing safety goggles, was only good for
3,750 rpm... The arbor speed of the General is 4,000 rpm, and I didn't
trust Chinese manufacturing to be good for an additional 7%.
If'n I get a tougher wheel in the future, I may give it a try... As long as
Patriarch doesn't read my posts...
