    Hi tony,
    l have a Burgess, its almost as old as me but is in better condition. I have only used it for cutting curves and shapes, l don,t have a spacer or stop bar to measure against the blade to get a correct a thickness.
    I will look into that, never needed it so up till now never thought about it.
    stay safe jim.

    Proper job then. My table saw uses 10" blades and came like most of my kit from Machine Mart. The metal lathe is a Myford plus a smaller bench Cowells 90 clockmakers lathe. I also have a BCA jig borer - miller with a rotary table. Fortunate to have had Tony from lathes.co.uk who was within driving distance and has all types of lathes for sale.

    Agree entirely Ron. I have Table saw, bandsaw, thicknesser/planer, router and recently acquired jointer. The videos are very informative and I have watched similar on Utube and improved my safety levels and end results. Sharp blades and correctly aligned machinery make life so much better. I have used all of my kit to prepare wood for planking etc. We have a couple of retired joiners in our club and their models are always exceptional. I urge anyone to make use of the Utube videos on how to use woodworking machines as there are right and wrong ways to work wood if you want a fine finish.

    Hi Jim,
    what make of bandsaw do you have? I've an Einhell TC-SB 200/1 which I've used to cut iroko. Provided you don't push the piece through too hard, it works just fine. A working tip for anyone using an Einhell -do ensure you have a a good suction to vacuum the dust, because residue dust can cover the motor contacts and prevent restart.

    Red Oak, White or Quarter sawn? I have used my table saw to make strips 1/8โ€- 3/16โ€ just need a proper sharp blade. Be sure you have a riving knive on your saw.

    Also use push sticks plus fingerboard if so desired. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10ePcF1sx9o

    Doug, it was from an old horizontal mill where I worked 10" dia run at 800 rpm it cut really well and easy to sharpen.
    My old table saw had belt drive with multiple pulleys so easy to run slowly.
    I'll post some pictures of Caroline's doll's house tomorrow when I get the laptop out.
    Kit detector upgrade not required as I owned up, it was on that e sale site with a ยฃ30 buy it now, and only 40 miles away, so collection was easy.
    The lady selling it gave me a lot of information about her parents modelling boats and doll's houses.
    Bedtime calls as we have an early start tomorrow.
    Cheers Colin.

    Good stuff Colin๐Ÿ‘ be nice to see what Caroline made with 'em sometime.
    BTW; how do you fit a slitting blade to your milling machine?
    Wondering if that's possible with my mini mill somehow.
    (Scratch scratch scratch - yet more hairs on the bench!๐Ÿค”)
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Hi Jim. Had to do a similar thing about 10 years ago with some 12 x 2 x 4ft green oak I was given.
    I first ran it through my table saw at 1 inch spacing with a fine slitting blade from my milling machine, this gave me 10 pieces of 2 x 1 + 1of 2 x .7
    I then cut them down the middle with my bandsaw. Giving 20 pieces 2 x .45 followed by slitting them at 2mm spacing on the band saw which gave about 18 good pieces from each measuring 2mm by .45 inch.
    Finally passed through my thicknesses set at 1/16th inch.
    Sadly they weren't for me but for the wife's dolls house building, with real oak plank flooring. A 12 room Georgian mansion.
    So it is possible, but great care is needed when running with the grain.
    Hope this hasn't put you off, as its well worth the effort.
    Cheers Colin.

    Hi chaps couple of weeks ago one of my neighbours had their kitchen replaced. The old work surfaces were solid oak they knew l made models from all sorts of wood so asked me if l would like any of it, yes please so took a couple 2x1 mtr lengths.
    Lovely 40 mm thick l thought l must be able to plank out a whole flotilla of boats
    only one problem cutting the oak down into useable strips. I own several different saws, bandsaw, table saw and slide compound saw.
    Great for general woodwork no good for cutting nice fine lengths of stripwood.
    Has anybody know a way or will being turned into cutting boards be their fate. Stay safe jim.
