Cookie cutter sled
« on: August 10, 2017, 08:32:41 pm »
Today I finally had a chance to try out my cookie cutting sled on my laguna bandsaw.  I originally made the sled to saw short small limbs or firewood chunks into small slabs.  Worked ok for that and then I decided it would also work for cross cutting cookies for making coasters.  I cut up a pile of straight limbs I had been collecting for a few weeks.  I probable have between 200-250 cut and then my woodslicer blade went dull and would not cut straight so I had to stop.  I guess i'm off to the woodworking store tomorrow to get a carbide blade for re-sawing.  woodslicer works well but seems to dull quicker than i like.

My biggest table band saw takes a 1"blade that I can sharpen with a dremel.
Collector and builder of many things.

Wood work shop
And a Weld shop
And now a saw mill

Thanks for comments on my shop.  My career was spent mostly in mfg, quality, eng so I have organization drilled in for many decades.  Some things are products I developed for my company to sell but nobody else could see the future in shop organization stuff so I was able to bring home the prototypes that were being pitched.

the blade that went dull was a woodslicer.  It also hit my ceramic guide blocks so i think it reset some teeth so I dont think it was repairable.  I tried resharpening a 3/4 blade with dremel but it never cur straight again.  I am looking at buying oregon chainsaw sharpener and using it on sawmill and larger band blades.
