|Thread: Advise needed.|
Hi James ,I personally don't like Record saws I have a 10'' table saw I find the blade changing a fiddle. The rip fence I don't like at all theres no fine adjustment to it and it doesn't stay paralel to the blade leading to stock binding up the is no adjustment on the far end of the fence so you can't set it up and leave it I would;'t recommend it at all
|Thread: turning wooden fruit|

|Thread: how to loose your fingers|
Looking at the replies to my post I can see there are a few budding casualties out there As for his hand being away from the blade if you'd had one of these machines kick up on you you'd know how far they can jump when under load. I don't want to get into a long argument with anybody on this subject but those machines have two handle for a reason. and when youv'e seen four fingers laying in the palm of a hand you realise what it is. My stomach churns every time I see such a picture So lets not be a bunch of your never a woodworker till youv'e lost a fingure guys. Having worked in many casualties MOST ACCIDENTS HAPPEN IN THE HOME.
In my recent issue of Good wood I was horrified to see on page14 Andy King using a hand held electric saw with only his right hand he looks dead set on loosing his finger on his Left hand as they are laid out neatly to the side of the saw as he pushes it through a thick tile. I think this is probably one of the most stupid things |I have seen in my favorite mag. Now some of you may think I'm being paranoid but I can assure you I'm not In a previous life I spent 22 years in the Royal Navy Medical service the last two I was running the medical department at Yeovilton Airbase. when one day a chippy came in saying excitedly can someone help me. Then he opened up his left fist which had his 4 fingers from his right hand laying al nicely lined up and cut off neat and square. He'd been usung a similar saw one handed when it hit something hard and jumped the rest as they say is history SO PLEASE NO MORE PICS OF PEOPLE USING THESE SAWS ONE HANDED Despit the frozen peas and a blue light ambulance ride to hospital the poor fellow is still without his fingers.
ANDY YOU OF ALL PEOPLE SHOULD KNOW BETTER

|Thread: Dennis's first Craft Fair|
Hi Dennis you obviouslty have make some lovely stuff like the other woodies I'm sorry you didnt sell more. But the general public have no idea the time it takes the level of skill involved etc I know a very top class cabinet maker in Saville Spain who says the Spaniards would rather spend a thousand euros on a claped out rust bucket of a car than a piece of furniture that will last generations so its not just the Brits who won't spend money. I-ve just recieved a commision to biuld a double bed in sapele and maple Its going to take me longer to find the wood than make the bed!!! Do't be disheartened and keep on turning Woodturner Ged[Spain]
