    Meat bandsaws

    I've seen these at some of the farm stores and I'm wondering if anyone has used one of these? How well does it work? Can you cut meat straight out of the deep freeze with them or does it need to be...

    Splicing Woven Wire

    What is the best way to splice together two rolls for a long run of fence? I was thinking about overlapping them by a few verticals and wrapping wire around the vertical strands.

    Thanks.

    The power drain on a charger is minimal unless you are discharging (like if you have a short or something is leaning against the wire). All the solar ones have batteries. It's a pretty ideal...

    The big mail order places do a good job, I've used them before with no problems. You might also check out the local farm store(s). Some of them have birds in the string time to early summer.

    Re: Dual bevel mitre saw or not?

    I bought a 10" hitachi as a gift and used it some, it is a nice saw in the budget range ($150). Haven't been too impressed with what I have seen of Delta lately.

    Re: Dual bevel mitre saw or not?

    The lasers have to be mounted to the side of the blade which makes them not very accurate. They do have expensive models with dual lasers (one on each side) that would be accurate though. I just use...
