    Great post! Thanks for taking the time to do that. Now I feel a little better about all the money I've spent on blocks.

    Nice to see a butcher's band saw in use. I had a Biro in my cabinet shop for years and the sled makes cross cutting so much easier. How long is a blade good for cutting iron wood?
