Re: Ameritools arbor size

Ameritools arbor size

Anybody know the arbor size of the Ameritools 4-inch trim saw? Debating with myself about getting the Ameritools, or the good ol' Tiny Trim for $100 less. I got my old Tiny Trim used for $35 years ago... but it's totally kaput now. But, I'd like to use my 1/2-inch blades if possible. So, Ameritools ...

belts

Fave cost-effective places to buy silicone carbide belts, 4 x 106? The Oregon co, Sattex, I used to order from when I shared a belt-sander-equipped studio has dropped its abrasives line. As I recall, their prices were pretty reasonable. HIS is something like $45 for a box of five 60-grits ($9/each)....

Yep, know how much they are new. Where are you, that they're $250? That sounds like a parallel universe.

I make a lot of torched freeform elements for my portraits - sometimes they get very 3-D. So when things are just too tangled I take my elements and slump them flat - usually on a kiln shelf under :wink: my firing shelf - this way I don't take a separate firing just for these elements. -Terry O.

Like Kate, I have one of the 1st 1414s. I also went thru the problem phases with it --- with Mike, Perry & Mike (The Skuttettes) holding my hand all the way. I've had 2 major upgrades/fixes all at no charge, and Skutt picked up & delivered. And, when I moved my kiln recently, I lost the struts to ho...

Billets are something new from Bullseve. /quote]
Don't forget that Uroboros and Spectrum have been making billets (COE 90 and 96) for quite a while. You can check out their products on their sites (see above...both are WG.com sponsors).
