I have a 16 inch band saw are there band saw blades that I can use to cut 3/16 SS?
Hi Richard. If SS = stainless steel, then I would suggest asking the manufacturer of your bandsaw about it’s capabilities to cut ferrous metal. Most wood bandsaws are not designed for this. If you are referring to something else, please let me know.

Hello from Collinsville, IL — Ken
What a good dust collector for a mitersaw?
I am making a tall 5 shelf book shelf out of blue bugwood pine. It has been dried for 2 years, but I am worried about the wood in the carcass moving with changes in humidity. What would the best joinery for the carcass of the shelves to mitigate wood movement?
Can you recommend some really comfortable knee pads for a homeowner?
I noticed a bow on your back wall. Is it a Fred Bear, I think his factory is in your town.
The finish on my 1900’s mahogany table was dissolve by cat urine, what kind of finish am I looking at and can you suggest a remedy…other than getting rid of the cat.
Just finished planing some paint laden wood fencing. Smells like cedar. How do I identify the wood type. Want to make something else with it
Can you recommend a good article or discuss different wood glues, their use and limitations?
I get cedar from a sawmill to work with. Of course it’s not dried out yet, does painting a project help keep the wood from cracking over time or can I do something to prep the wood .
what’s your thought on butt joints. biscuits or just glue?
Turning: I attempt to turn small bowls from very dry hardwood. What tips do you have to make the wood removal inside the bowl go smoothly?
How do you get a saw disc thicker (as in you videos)? Do you join 3 disc for the table saw?
