    Electric Chainsaw Mill

    Great instructable! I have one of the cheap bar mills and struggle to get straight level cuts. This looks like an significant improvement over what I have! One comment though, wench is a derogatory term for a female server. A winch is used to pull things.

    It should work with cardboard but I haven't actually tried it. Feel free to experiment and post your results! Good luck

  • Weight Bench (5 Position,Flat/Incline) Doubles As Patio Bench

    Nice bench!. I have most of the materials and want to build it. As i was going through the instructable I noticed you call out #10 screws for the incline supports. The pictures look much larger than a #10 (3/16" dia). Did you mean 10mm (~3/8")?

    Just to clarify: "Vinyl" is a class of organic molecules. Some such as PVC can give off nasty byproducts (chlorine in the case of PVC) when burned. Others are very innocuous such as white glue (Elmers's glue is mostly ethelyene vinyl acetate) and wood glue (poly vinyl acetate). Btw, poly is just a greek suffix meaning many.

  • This is very cool! Your documentation is excellent for this project as well. As I watched the video I couldn't help but think that with some slight modification to the code and a different pen, perhaps a rollerball, this could be a large format pen plotter. Excellent work

    It should soak into wood, but would likely take a good bit.

    Thank you

    It should work well with papier mache. Are you planning ti add it to the mix or treat the tiles after they are finished? Thanks for the kind words

    Thanks, I'm glad it is useful

    Yes it can be used on wood. It should soak in somewhat. I am not aware of any finish but you may be able to add it to a waterbased paint,

As Two Paddles Design mentioned, a bit more detail on how the structure is attached to the frame would be helpful.Thanks again.

    BTW Rosco Flamex PA comes up in a search at the top of the page,National Fire does not, I had to go to the bottom of the page to find your product. Also Rosco's MSDS was published almost a year earlier than yours.

    Not sure what I can be held liable for although I did make mistake and referenced a product fro Rosco called Flamex PA that DOES contain Ammonium Bromide. Perhaps you should be more concerned about another company operating in the FR space with an almost identical product name than about trying to bully people who write instructables.https://www.instructables.com/pages/search/search.jsp?cx=partner-pub-1783560022203827%3Anpr2q7v5m6t&cof=FORID%3A11&ie=ISO-8859-1&q=orange+board

    Not sure what I can be liable for. Although I did make a mistake and referenced a product from Rosco called Flamex PA, not Flamex PF.Perhaps you should be more concerned about another company operating in the FR space with a product with an almost identical name than trying to bully people who write instructables. I took a look at your vague MSDS and based on the decomposition products, I think I have a pretty good idea what your "proprietary" materials are. Perhaps I need to upgrade this instructable to use a similar water soluble material.Below is a link to Flamex PA MSDSrosco.com/technotes/scenic/msds/flamex/MSDS_RoscoFl...
