Sawdust Session #12:  January 26, 2008
Topics: A simple method for handling unwieldy sheet materials and cutting them to size, how to cut joinery in plywood without splinters and tear-out, tuning up you Shopsmith Belt Sander, and a roll-around caddy to keep your clamps handy -- and organized. Plus Drew's Interludes!

1. Handling Sheet Materials  -- At last! A simpler, gentler way to  "bust up" sheet materials easily and accurately. No longer any need for super powers to manhandle those awkward 4 x 8 sheets.

2. Making Splinter-Free Dadoes and Rabbets -- How to keep hardwoods, plywood, and other materials from splintering and tearing when you cut dadoes, rabbets, and grooves with a dado cutter.
3. Belt Sander Tune-Up-- Because belt sanders produce so much super-fine sawdust, they need some special TLC to keep them in tip-top shape. Here's what to do for your machine. 4. SS Project: A Clamp Caddy -- Store and organize bar clamps, hand screws, C-clamps, band clamps, and all your assembly tools in this space-saving roll-around cart. Free plans!
5. Interlude A: A technique that Drew developed to eliminate tear-out when cutting plywood with a circular saw.
6. Interlude B: Drew shows how to "crown" an new sanding belt for optimal tracking.
