I'm vocabularily challenged tonight. Many things are thingies.
In the absolutely waning hours of Safety Week (yes, technically it ended 3 hours ago, but I haven't gone to bed yet), I post this addition. Behold, the handiest bandsaw thingy (oak version):
At the bandsaw, I find this scrap of oak more useful than many things I actually paid for. The nub sticking out is a 5mm Domino. You could use a piece of dowel. I don't glue it in so I can replace it when it looks even worse than it does right now :)
The distance from the front of the thingy to the front of the Domino is a hair less than then distance from the front of the bandsaw table to the blade.
If you look carefully, there's a corner seriously dented on the thingy. Yup, you can use it as a Howard Cosell Brick and hurl it to blow off steam... it's only scrap.
