WOOD MAGAZINE QUIZ for 15 JAN 10

Good Morning Friends,

I like to use chalk to rough out my project parts so I can rough cut them even before truing and planing however I keep breaking my piece of chalk. What would be a good method to use that would help to keep the chalk from breaking so much?

Remember to keep your hands no closer to a spinning blade or bit than 6" for safety sake.

I appropriate side walk chalk from a bucket that my daughter has.  I wrap mine with blue painters tape.  Just peel the tape back as I use the chalk up.

 

I wish I could find a chalk holder like my teachers used to use.  Chalk is long gone from class rooms now.  My schools use Smart Boards.  They are actually a computer screen.  No chalk for those.

  Chalk is long gone from class rooms now. Wow. Thanks for bringing home the age factor. Typing I will not talk or chew gum in class 1000 times just would not be the same.

I would tend to agree with the chalk holder if you can find anyone who still sells them.  Otherwise, the painters tape sounds like a good idea.  Almost like a crayon.

I'll go along with Beaver too. Painters tape sounds like a good idea.

Good Morning All,

You fellows have it in the right perspective and I think the painters tape would work fine however the shop tip on page 15 in issue 194 stated to use masking tape and I agree because it is cheaper to buy. I'm not stingy but I like to think I'm Frugal.
