Re: Bandsaw Blades

I got a blade welded at a blade shop and the teeth were backwards. :( When I complained they told me just to turn it inside out. Who knew? :roll: :wink: Just be sure to wear gloves. :wink: :)

Re: Center Drill Tip Broken Off In Hole

Ah Ha, now I see it. :D Clever Idea. Works when there is not enough room to use a grooving tool around it. :wink:

Re: Center Drill Tip Broken Off In Hole

When that happened to me I had enough room around the broken tip to use a small grooving tool to remove material around the tip and pick it out.

I am just now getting back to fly fishing and of co...
