I’m needing to cut down a large piece of Ash into smaller pieces that I can use for a project and thought that the table saw would be the best tool to use. However I haven’t been inducted to use the table saw, so wanted to know if any @woodtechs will be around this Friday or weekend to give me a help me, or show me how to use the machine?
What time will you be there today? I have to pick up my son from school at 3:30pm, so this afternoon probably won’t work for me. If you are there tonight I might be able to pop down after 6:30pm when my partner gets home from work to look after our son. Other wise Sunday will have to be the day.
The piece I have is 302cm x 5cm x 28cm I’m looking to cut it into strips roughly 72cm x 5cm x 2cm to experiment with steam bending, so wont need it all. I’m probably going to have to cut into half to transport it to the space I think… but if you were wanting a piece longer than 1.5m I could try figure out another way to transport it.
Hi Jonty. I was also hoping to get some help from one the woodtechs this weekend, just for a few cuts on the table saw. If it’s not too much trouble would you mind helping me out too? Is it just the Sunday you’ll be around or will you be Saturday as well?
Can build a box out of osb, put a wallpaper stripper one end and a wet rag over a hole the other end. Quick, cheap steam box. Been saying for ages I’d like to do this down the space but never got round to it
@woodtechs it would considerably ease things if we could find some members who are willing to be trained on the table saw, and then use that skill to carry out cuts for members who just want occasional cuts done?
Super! Looking forward to working together. Sat/sun heading to Shropshire for a week long oak framing course but I think I can drop by beforehand at some point to take some photos of the raft Kingspan and share them here.
