I usually, after some struggle remember how to turn my hands. LOL! The shoe trick might help. I’ll be back on my next blade change.

I never knew how to do this until I saw Alex Snodgrass demo it in his band saw tune up video….. but regardless who teaches it, it’s a great tip.

I still use a glove….. just in case.

Come on, you never saw Burt Reynolds wearing gloves, did you? Guys with mustaches are too manly for hand protection!

Great advice! It’s nice to have them all coiled up instead of hanging in a big loop.

I swear that skinny bodied, large headed man dragging the bag is me…

Actually, I’ve been a Photoshop user for years. In fact I use the entire Adobe Creative Suite.

Your photo and video editing is truly entertaining and professional. I know few will be able to match your raw talent, but could you share with us some of the software you use to help bring your video and illustrations to us?

What version of the Adobe Creative Suite are you using and, excuse my less than novice level of knowledge, what do you use to edit your video … if it isn’t the Adobe software you already mentioned? (told you I didn’t know much)

I struggle with a website we use to display the things our students create and could use some pointers.
Thanks, Chance Four

I use the newest version of Adobe Creative Suite (CS6), which is a collection of about a dozen software programs for everything from photo, video and audio editing, special effects, animation and web design. It is very expensive to buy, but you can pay a monthly subscription fee (called the Creative Cloud) instead of purchasing outright. Students and teachers can also get significant discounts. It is a bit complicated to learn, and I am just a beginner, but their are some great online tutorials.

For video I do most of the editing in Adobe Premiere Pro. You can purchase a less expensive version (Premiere Elements) which is still an excellent program, for about $100.

Adobe’s high end web design software is Dreamweaver, but the make a much easier to use, though less powerful software now called Muse. It is what we use for our website and we love it. You can subscribe to just that software for about $20/mo, which includes basic web hosting! It’s a great program because you don’t have to mess with HTML or anything like that.

Whatever you use, it’s a gradual learning experience. You can see huge differences between our earlier videos and the new ones. And we still have a long way to go in some areas.

Hope this helps!
