How many of the members use, have used or would recommend using this potential purchase. Maybe not in this guise but a similar product...I'm thinking it may be an invaluable addition to the workshop not to mention easier on my eyes when cutting and painting.. Any thoughts?..... Regards C
Hi all! Today I spent quite a bit of time in our basement workshop with my minis supply box and our workshop tools and after several hours of work came out with three small tables! yay! It was a move in the right direction from spending hours drooling over pictures to actually doing things for my houses. One reason it took sooooo long was that no matter what I did my table legs kept coming out uneven! Then I'd have to cut, sand, and level until it was straight. The other reason was that one table leg refused to stay in place even after attempting several glues, which meant releveling and resanding after I scraped off the non-working glue. I don't think anything could help the second issue, it was just a cursed day, but I suspect better tools could help with the first issue. I have a cheap little miter box and saw (was cheaper than the x-acto and I thought it could tide me over a few paychecks since I had so many supplies to get, then get the x-acto one later) and I used that to cut my table legs. It just seemed like no matter how carefully I measured, cut, and sanded the legs kept coming out different lengths. Just by enough to make the table wobble. Would a better miter box be a simple solution? Or do most of you prefer the chopper thing that cuts like scissors and has a little miter thing on it? I hear mixed reviews about that tool. Some people rave and some people say it just smooshs the wood. This is pay week, so I can get a better something, but I'm not sure what the best thing to buy is. Thanks for any help!
