Helpful Hint

  • Sometimes wood plugs are difficult to get flush with your finished surface. It can also be difficult to complete the task without scaring the wood around the plug when using a chisel or saw.
    • Try using a SHARP straight router bit. Make it flush with the base of the router. It cuts them quickly and cleanly.


Safety Note

  • On machines: Make sure you have adequate room for both the in-feed and out-feed of your material.
    • If someone or something is in your way, ask that if be moved.
    • FYI: on the table saw in Lenox, it is just over 8 feet from the back of the blade to the vice at the far end of the table. Someone thought that one out.

Rule and Regulation of the Week

  • We are a DOacrocy. With winter raising its head, please help keep the sidewalks clear for our neighbors at the Lenox facility. There is a snow blower and shovels by the middle door in the alley.
