    Thanks, guys. I had a few sets of planer blades sharpened – $.70/inch. Seems a bit high but it is what it is. I haven’t had the need to replace them yet so I can’t tell how a good (or poor) a job he did.
    The owner/operator did mention he is expecting a new saw sharpener this week or next. He tells me blades should be done quicker and better than before. We’ll see.

    I agree, Mike. Charlie is one of those Go-To guys in the club. His experience is unparalleled. He makes it look so simple – and doesn’t get any dust from paper towels! Now that’s a pro.

    That’s the ticket! Thanks, Jim.

    Sorry I missed it. But I guess that means I would have had to hang around with all those “scroll saw” people. It would have been worth it, I’m sure.

    Hey Roger,
    I would really hate to see that go up in smoke. That would be a shame. Unfortunately, I am unavailable all this week and Amityville is not a quick run from Bohemia. But if it is still available when I have the opportunity, I will take you up on that. But first come, first served. Someone should take advantage and save this lumber from a horrible fate.

    Good point, Jim, but turners could hold meetings without a TV but it will be difficult without a lathe. The Historical Society is, so far, firm about not keeping the lathe at the barn. Soooo … either keep the meetings at the barn but lose the lathe or relocate with the lathe and forego the TV. However, I think it is far easier to acquire a TV than a substitute for a lathe. Keep in mind that nothing has been set in stone as of yet. And we are still looking into alternative meeting locations.

    The barn is doing fine – it’s still standing. Our relationship with the Society is in question.
    Our board is in negotiations with the historical society. We are trying to work out the question of storage for our equipment. It does look promising that we will remain at the barn but there are a couple of hitches to that. It appears the turners may need to relocate if they wish to keep the Oneway lathe (and well they should). But this is part of the negotiations. For the time being, we will still be meeting at the barn as usual.
    Wednesday March 6th 7:00 PM at the Brush Barn.

    I don’t know why the others didn’t come through. I tried to resize them before putting them up but it wouldn’t let me. We get the idea. I like it. I would typically tilt the blade to 45 deg to make that cut on my radial arm saw. Assuming you make the jig accurately (no doubt you did), keeping the blade consistently at 90 means more consistency in your cuts.
