What's this ?

Can anyone guess what's happening here ?

Clues - I'm not cutting a red board in two. The red doesn't mean danger the blade is sharp. The red is not blood.

You are cleaning and waxing our beard.

Never seen a wax stick like that but guess that might be what it is. That or you are just messing with us. :lol:

Not a wax stick nor a package of cheese.

Clue -- it's a reminder.

A reminder to release the tension on your blade before you go to bed!! Or, that there is no tension on the blade!!! :geek:

That's almost right Chuck! Too many times In my absent mindednest I have started the saw with the blade tension released. I need a reminder to engage the tension lever.

I try to remember to release the tension on mine but do forget at times. From a lot of the different things I have read it does not hurt anything leaving the tension on all the time. I don't know. I know the old bandsaws did not have a easy way to do it and didn't seen to hurt them.

I never release the tension on my band saws -- maybe that's why they are rotten performers -- but it's not very convenient to do it and I'm very lazy.

But I still think that's just wax for Henry's beard.

All I could focus on was how clean that shop was.

Thanks Stanley, My first woodworking shop, if you could call it a shop, was split between a pole barn (dirt floor) and a corn crib (rough floor with wide cracks). Believe it or not remembering those days I enjoy being able to sweep up the chip and saw dust.
