Sharpeners and setters and stuff
« on: June 05, 2007, 09:51:14 AM »
I have been reading this forum for 2-3 years now. I have, in turn, been entertained and enlightened. There is a wealth of infomation here that has made my job a lot easier at times. I see on going posts about sawmills, canthooks and blades, but I have not seen much about sharpeners and setters under one heading. The reason I bring this up is that I just bought a Dinasaw Tooth Setter from Baily's. I have not run it yet, but it appears to be a high quality piece of equipment. It's sturdy and I never cease to marvel at the ingenuity that goes into these things. It held one surprise for me, however. My band has to be turned inside out in order for the machine to feed it. Knowledge of this ahead of time would have been nice. I already have a scar on my finger from a careless moment uncoiling a Woodmizer blade ( I thought those leather gloves were bulletproof).  So I thought a topic detailing what support equipment y'all use and why and what you like and don't like about it might help shape some informed opinions on future purchases for the rest of us. Some of that stuff is pretty serious bucks. This place is a great source of info and I thank y'all for taking the time to make that knowledge available to the rest of us. I have a bunch of pictures; I just have to read Jeff's tutorial and I'll post some.
