Tell us about yourself!
I have to say. I've seen a lit of stuff on this site over the past ten years and this is the coolest project I have ever seen on here. I don't even have kids and I want to make this for some reason.
Toy Lawn Mower
How to Make a Zigzag Chair
Clean little design project. Why the choice on the font. That was the only distracting thing about the layout. Good job. I bet you had a nice review.
Saw Blade Cleaning
Oven cleaner and then a quick rinse works great too. That's what we do at the shop.
I have made several versions of this for many projects. You were on the right track with the aluminum tape. There is a product called glide kote. It's a modified silicone spray. It dries super fast and is cleaner than a silicon spray. I'm not selling it or anything but I do use it all day long in the shop. If you spray both the footplate and the fence the saw feels like it's on wheels. Crc silicone spray us the closet thing I have found in a regular hardware store. Nice build and have fun with your new toy.
