Woodworking for over 40 years I gained a real appreciation for wood in high school wood shop class. I made a few pieces of furniture back in the 80's, then woodworking was kind of put on hold while my wife and I raised two wonderful daughters. Still working full time and helping raise our two grandchildren now so shop time seems infrequent at times.

Timbo, I’m not all that far north—just east of Leesburg, VA. Where did you get your steel from?

I just ordered the riving knives from Steel City, for their 35900 series saws, and they fit just fine. 1-877-724-8665, part #’s SC10150 and 10151, $11 each, $8 shipping, $4 credit card surcharge. Just don’t tell ‘em it’s for a Ridgid!

-- Now, where did I put those bandaids?
