    @cmeyer25 congrats Charlie, looking forward to hearing what you think about that blade,

    Picked up a few little things today. Stuff for a few repairs and then I decided to go ahead and grab that interesting double sided blade for my CCS180- I’ll give it a try and see how it goes. It’s not all that more expensive than the diablo version and if it works will be about 25% less than the cost of buying two, plus no extra trip.

    Looking forward to hearing how you like the reversible blade. How thick is the kerf? About the same as the Diablo?

    I think it’s slightly thicker, maybe 1/16th? The Diablo blades are so thin and this one doesn’t feel quite that thin, so I’ll let you know. I think the amount of carbide looks the same per tooth though, so I total it’s got twice the carbide, and I’m hoping that does actually translate to twice the amount of usable life.

    Another trip to LV today. Got a bunch of garden related stuff, but also a couple of Pica Visor Markers I’ve been wanting to try.

    Went to Busy Bee for a new honing wheel for my wet grinder that I pooched because I didn’t read the owners manual the first time I went to use it. I also bought two lumber racks on sale that I’m gonna use in my shed.

    Also wemt to Canadian Tire and decided on a couple of ratchet/socket sets for the shed as well.

    Yes they were. I’m still debating whether to keep one of them or not. Or simply not open either and see if a better deal shows up that I feel suits me better. I’m not 100% sold on them, but the sale was over tomorrow so I bought them for now.

    I also picked up a new flush cut router bit because I keep reaching for one that I bought a while ago and can’t find it anywhere!

    Oh, and I grabbed a telescoping magnetic retriever for my work shop – after talking to so many people about how great it is to have one at the table saw in case I drop the arbor but, I realized I didn’t have one for my work saw – and it was less than $1.50, so it seemed dumb not to!

    I heard and seen about the reversa blade – looking forward on some thoughts about it.

    So I wonder when it gets dull if you can just flip it around and it will be like a new blade?

    Lufkin has a new tape measure in a different color scheme for sure.

    I have two Lufkin tapes just like that…only without the black blade. Both are total junk after almost zero usage. The hooks get stuck on everything and have bent already (again…under extremely limited usage).

    I’m still of the thought this is an ill conceived gimmicky blade where the non-used side gets slowly dulled as you use it. Let us know what you think Charlie.

    I got a new feather board for cutting on the table saw at work – especially for vertically oriented cuts. I was planning on cutting some 12’ 2x6s at 15* and I really wanted to make it safer.

    Will you be able to use these feather boards for vertical cuts with the 2x6s? Wouldn’t you need a really tall fence (read: insanely tall) to accommodate the feather boards and still work with something so tall?

    That is one thing about Cdn Tire they always have sales on. Just weather a better deal shows up.

    The feather boards won’t be attached to the fence holding the wood to the table, they will be attached to the table to hold the piece of wood against the fence (which I had also planned to add an auxiliary fence that would be talked too – the gts1031 fence is pretty stubby) so they’ll attach to the miter slot in the table top and provide horizontal pressure to keep the piece from twisting while I run it through vertically to get a nice 15* bevel.

    Thanks for the input on the tape,, I try to stick with the FatMax now-a-days.

    Guess they are thinking the black blades will help people forget the bad quality on their previous models.

    I got intrigued by your post and went and found this product along with their video here….

    My concern is if the upper feather board doesn’t have a proper backer support along the fence side. I’d be inclined to install a raised and properly fastened and squared backer between the stock and the fence in using this unique type of raised featherboard. Especially you are doing any kind of bevelled cut cuz once your stock has cleared the feathers, it may askew such slightly and cause a horrible throw-back or kick-back situation.

    I do like them myself and may get a set myself. The only place in Canada I’ve found them is at Tegs Tools in Hamilton. Never seen them before.

    There’s a lot of love in your castle Jim. My princess would have me shackled in the dungeon if I bought her a mower.
