Default New Bits Arrived

Ordered some new bits the other day from Dave and Eric and was pretty excited when they arrived today. Shipping was pretty fast. 2 day priority mail. From Arizona to here in West Virginia. Was pretty tickled to hear Dave's voice on the phone when I called to confirm my order. Answered all my questions about life span duration of the bits and how many times they could be sharpened before having to replace them. Ordered a profile bit and 60 degree v- groove bit to go along with my increasing supply of bits. Plan on ordering a 90 degree v-groove as well in the coming weeks after winter bills are caught up.

Also can't wait to order my Dewalt DWP611 with an acrylic sub base. Looking forward to muscling out some signs this weekend with my plunge router.

Also hoping to get started on building my router table this week my back and weather permitting. I was lucky enough to pick up a bunch of wood from a building my nephew was contracted to clear out on Thursday. Plywood, 2x4's, 2x12's, various 1x's, peg board and a lot of other scrap wood. Have another load to grab Monday yet before they drop off the roll back container. Wife found me a big box with hundreds of new pencils sorting through stuff so think I'm set for a life time on them. lol

Enjoy the new bits Bobby Lee. I know I have enjoyed mine a lot! Get the 90° as soon as you can. It's great for the background clean up. I had another style of 90° and thought 90° is 90° right? Wrong! My original bit was 1/2" wide and took too much out when trying to clean up a background. Switching to theirs made all the difference in my background clean up work. The bit Dave and Eric sell is 1/4" wide.

And free lumber is always a good thing to find. Yesterday, I ran a batch of Cedar fence pickets through my planer to see if the wood was any good. I was pleasantly surprised. I picked up 6 boards that basically look brand new, minus the nail holes. And as for most of the other boards, I can still get 3 or 4 signs out of each one. Best of all, there's more wood fencing at the same place for me to go get. That means my profits just went up!! Free is good!! LOL

Post pics of your signs....we all like pictures!!

Bruce,

Welcome to the forum. You have found the premier forum for sign carving. Don't be afraid to ask questions on here. You will get an honest answer.....and you may very well get a few wise cracks too. But those are all in fun.....so take them for what they are.....fun.

Dave and Eric are the Rhotens.....father (Dave) and son (Eric) duo out of Arizona. They are sign making gurus and can be found at:
Make a Wood Sign
Dave's Signs | How to Make Router Wood Signs Video
on Youtube at "oldave 100"

They have hundreds of instructional videos on sign making. They also sell router bits, stencils, and a lot of other sign making equipment.

Several of us on this site tend think of them as some of the best sign carvers out there. They are very personable, helpful, knowledgeable, and down right friendly. Easy to do business with. If you call or email them you will most likely have one of them answer the call and they will reply to an email....usually the same day or the next business morning.

Once you know a little bit about them, it won't be hard for you to determine what carvers here on the forum subscribe to their channel. Our carvings usually bear at least one aspect of their teaching.....if not our entire sign.

Lastly, post pictures of your work. We love pictures on this forum!!

Frank

I may not know what I'm doing, but I am having fun doing it wrong!!

Happy Day Veterans!!
