DEMO

Ron Hudson demonstrated how to make wooden bracelets. They are item for the fair that are relatively easy to make. He also demonstrated how he makes the wheels for his big wheel trucks that he brought in. Now that he has a Jim Hilburger computer on his lathe is a much easier task. Thank You Ron for this very informative and well presented demo.

 

ELMER’S CORNER:

Saw Blade Storage Spacers:  Found in Vol.32/ No. 187 of Wordsmith.

The first requirement of saw blade storage is to keep the blades separated so the teeth won’t knock together and they can be easily grasped. An easy solution was found in using dairy container lids as spacers.  Cut a piece of plywood a little larger than the blades and insert a dowel in the center. Then drill holes in the lids with a Forstner bit and stack them between the blades to separate them.
