    Checkering G10.

    I would try to talk him out of checkering..a coarser finish on G-10 is super grippy anyway...My instinct is checkered G-10 is not going to be lovely like I think maybe Gene Kimmi does inlay checkering?

    Yay or Nay on Harbor Freight Band Saw.

    I have used the higher end saw from Harbor Freight for just over 20 years. This is for a contract machine shop. It has been used often and cleaned little....have not had to replace one thing.....well...except many many blades.
