    Any suggestions?...t
     
  2. Freud is supposed to have a new combination blade that is thinner and will rip (resaw) cooler than any other they've offered. I heard about it from one of the local power tool specialty stores. Of course, I don't know the name or anything... :rolleyes:

    I wiish they made a 10" version of my 7½" Freud Diablo .025" kerf blade. Damn I'd buy a box load.

    Stay away from the thin kerfed blades....You may find that you will need to use stabilizers with them.

    I've been using Everlast blades on my Powermatic 66 for 17 years and they are terrific. High grade carbide is used on the teeth, so they will rip just about anything you can feed through it and maintain their sharpness......Less "tune-ups".

    Everlast is an industrial quality blade, so they aren't cheap...@$90 for a 10 incher.

    Systimatic Blades are also of very high quality as are Forrest. I hope this helps.


    tjclem.....Were you the fellow bidding on sandi1070's spalt?

    tjclem...Here is the other spalt that I was going to bid on ....It is most likely a sister piece to the set that I just won.....Sorry to outbid you on that one, but it looked too nice! I've bought about 20 BM sets from this guy and his stuff is great.

    Thank you for the compliment.

    The blue-green stuff is turquoise. I've been crushing and inlaying turquoise and other sorts of semi-precious and precious materials into my artwork for about 10 years. Crush it up.....and use a dremel or high speed air carving tool to undercut the inclusion or crack(like a dentist would fill a tooth).....level off the crushed material and drip superglue until the turquoise is satuated. I use an industrial coffee grinder to get a consistant texture in the turquoise.

    If you are interested in trying this, let me know.....I can easily crush you some. It is not expensive....it only looks that way!
