Has anyone tried stabilizing their own knife slabs? I just purchased a set of burl insert for my Ruger SP 101 hog tracking revolver. The fellow uses it to stabilize his work. He sent me two sets of maple burl knife slabs to try. Seems like a nice idea. My son-in-law already has all the vacuum apparatus so I'll probably try some of the resin. I'll let ya'll know how they turn out...tippit
That looks like a great system for those who are unhandy like me at building 'stuff'.
Every time I think about building my own, I think about our little TX buddy Curtis trying to build something like a crester or a cut off saw or something- and the thread he put up about it has to go down as one of the all time great knee-slappers in TG history....
So I don't try building 'stuff' that has to do with pressure/electricity or chemical mixtures by myself! I'm too dangerous
When you consider the cost of sending off wood- anywhere from 10-15 dollars a pound AFTER they stabilize- this system will pay for itself pretty quickly, won't it?
