    Laid the upside down V way you get more material cutting at same time.
    With fine enough teeth anything could be cut in any position. I always do the upside down V like you said for my 14TPI blade, if I'm cutting one piece. It wasn't playing ball for the photo in that position as the moving jaw likes to lift without me futzing with the bolt on it.

      • If the jaw tilts too far in the position Matt showed, and the piece vibrates, its bad news.

          We had coffee and donuts afterward. Then I went on a short hike, followed by a huge buffet breakfast at a nearby golf course:


          I've been going there for probably 30 years. I took Muttley with me a few times:

          That park looks perfect to take my R/C rock crawler

          • What did I do today? Sprayed lacquer on 18 fan blades- which are now awaiting replacing the existing blades in a custom fan system in a pub. Then I had a beer and ordered a maui burger- without everything else. No lettuce, burger bun, pickle, fake tomato, fries- just the patty with the pineapple ring on it and whatever that sauce was. Kitchen couldn't do that, so it came with fries.

            And I rode home in my little car with those 18 still curing fan blades on the seat beside me. Lovely aroma-
            I seldom do anything within the scope of logical reason and calculated cost/benefit, etc- I'm following my passion-

I bought it and cut off the tripod mount and made a 1/4-20 mount for it, and welded some angle to mount the tracker to where the telescope used to be.

              Also today, banged out a scissor jack work support for my bandsaw. The roller stand I had doesn't like heavy material so i kept the roller and added a $12 scissor jack, some scrap and two old brake rotors.

                Yup, I'm all caught up now. Now I have to wait a week for episode 3...

                        The simple fact that 3P IS still alive is proof that he doesn't eat any of that semi-food-like crap, he just posts it to annoy us.

                        • I went to Starbucks and rode in the back of an A319 from Salt Lake City to Cincinnati. Tomorrow is Leipzig. Following day I am visiting Afghanistan, hoping I don't get shot at, then finally Amsterdam.
