Figured I would post this, just in case anybody out there likes to watch paint dry or faucets drip



It went fast with the biaxial tubing. Also surprised how easy it is to access ytube and upload videos. I might be the only one happy about that :biglaugh:
Ooo, who, who hangs free

Thought I would share how I set up my Rigid spindle sander since quite a few newer guys like myself start out with something like this.
I took a 1/2” Baltic Birch sheet and inlaid a thin collar with a flange to fit very close to the spindle. I had my friend, that machined the collar, also machine 6 additional rings, incrementally thicker so I could grind larger or smaller offsets from my pattern jigs. These come in handy when you choose accent stripes of different thicknesses.

My normal accent stripes have been just (2).031 G10 strips. I recently did my first mosaic accent which was significantly thicker at .145

Have any of you tried using a router with a template to rough out limbs?

I do not know if this is the right place to post this, but useful info. Sometimes on other sites you see people claiming hilarious speed from their bows and in many cases they do not know the correct way to make a speed test.

Lighting will also make some wild speeds

I use a light on the chrony to get consistent results .  :thumbsup:

I’ve also read you should black the field tip to help .
Stay sharp, Kenny.

I bought special indoor lights for mine. Fluorscent light tubes can really mess up things. Outdoors they say the Chrono should have a clear view of the sky on an overcast day.

Small tip. Over the the years my air hose had gotten some glue blobs that was hard to remove, so when I started with a new one I wrapped it with thin kitchen plastic when it was pumped up. Just leave the plastic in place.

I take my used 6x80 belts cut cross ways rip them in 1 in. Wide straps for shoe shine sanding tip overlays. A flexible rasp.
