Post: RE: Blade for 18" Band Saw

As Fred stated, no issues. A coat of shellac can serve to seal in the BLO and also serve as a base for whatever final finish you want. Adding the shellac coat avoids the long wait for the BLO to cur...

Don't know why it did not occur to me, but for the budget, I have to agree with Alan's recommendation for sandpaper.

Post: RE: Simple beginner sharpening

I do not think you can get to really sharp for $100. If I am using diamond, then I use 1200, 4000, and 8000 grit stones + strop. If I am using water stones, I use 1000, 6000, 13000. That is just th...
