Yes its danish oil only on that piece, and if you are polishing yew, you should get a similar finish after 7-8 coats.

But other timbers may require more coats, depending on density of timber.

What are you polishing??
nothing fancy or anything I've just used it on bits and pieces I've made. Mostly timber I've planed and sanded from rough wood myself, softwoods usually but recently a bit of mahogany Usually I use it for colour and then overcoat it with spray laquer.

If the saw manufacturer is a bit saucy on the pricing, there are plenty of third party manufacturers like Trend and Freud etc, that would have an exact match of a blade. Have a look here.
Thanks for that link. https://www.sautershop.com/circular-...4-set-3x254-30 is exactly what I was looking for.

how do you store a chainsaw? as in, which orientation?
i've always stored mine sitting flat, but there's no issue with the oil draining out if you were to hang it up by the handle, is there?

It might weep bar oil a bit depending on how the pump works, but just leave the scabbard on it and it’ll generally be fine.

Normally just leave them under the bench on their flat. Usually a small bit of leakage. Their used often enough there’s not much.

How many of you woodturners out there are using grinders with CBN wheels.

Is there a supplier in Ireland, or UK. Any advice welcome, thanks.

long term storage
I drain the petrol 100% and run it till it stops, then remove the plug and spray a bit of lube oil in and pull the cord a few times.
I put and old cloth under it, stored flat

one thing i need to get is a rubber mat to stand on out in the shed, when you're turning you tend to spend a lot of time standing without an awful lot of moving around.

i was thinking an agricultural supply place would be the best place to go looking for something like that?

cheers; twice in the last year or two i've had inflammation in my second toe (on both feet) and only in the second toe; the first time was on a very cold night so i thought it might have been chilblains, but it happened again recently. so i suspect it's just a circulation thing, i probably need to walk around a bit every half hour or so.

I have astroturf on mine. I got a roll of it for nothing. It’s painful stuff to keep clean, but it feels nice on a the feet.

lidl have lathes in stock again.

i learned of a new way of holding the tool, simply from the packaging.



i think that is a 'i'm going to stand as physically far away from this POS machine as i can' grip.
