Building diesel tanks and gluing up axles.
Over a year ago I scrounged up a wood porch umbrella pole and it has come in really handy for building gas tanks and air compressor tanks being that it’s 1 1/2”, has a really nice grain pattern.

Looks quite scary doing the tank grooves in the drop-saw Brian but no evidence of misadventure so all good.

Again THANK YOU for the HOW TO photos series in the blog, much appreciated….

Crowie I’m only cutting 1/8 of an inch, the saw has a stop lever so you can set it to whatever level you need.
I would have done it on the table saw and then hit on using the miter saw, feels much safer to me.
Here’s something else I used this with.
