They may be over size.  This does happen on other forums but I'm not sure on this one.

I'll try one myself and see if it works.



XXXXXXXX


Your right...............  there must be something I've not clicked.

Advice please  MODS

Test run

Here's some wood.  (To keep in with the thread title !)





The one subtlety is to right click on the  shaded centre line (after clicking it's OK, and  it's gone blue) and Save.

  Then go to message and  paste as advised.  It did look like just clicking on the OK sign would have been enough.

Thanks for the advice  Mr Mod.  On with Xmas now our family has arrived.  santa

Cheers Barrie,

They are a good source of supply.  I keep them in another box.  trouble is, they are waterproofed and need a light sanding before glue time   lol! 


I love my bandsaw and this is a product of one of my sessions on it.  Best tool I've ever owned.
