Filling cracks rev. Basic care – Wooden masks. Many Indigenous communities in Canada have a rich tradition of mask carving.

Basic care – Wooden masks

Originally these masks were produced for special and sometimes secret ceremonies. However, over the last 30 years or so, many Indigenous groups, particularly on Canada's west coast, have begun to produce beautiful and elaborate masks for sale to the general public. Although museums house many examples of old as well as contemporary masks, more and more are now in private ownership. To safeguard wooden masks as they are passed from one generation to the next, proper care is essential.

On this page: Causes of damage The main causes of damage to wooden masks are careless handling and environmental conditions. Light Light is a natural enemy of all organic materials. These materials can be even more susceptible to light damage than wood and can soon become faded and brittle. Humidity Wood is composed of cellulose (a molecule with an affinity for water). Water spills can cause cloudy white patches on wood surfaces. Insects. Wood Finishing: Selecting a Finish. Palapas y Pérgolas Los Cabos - Home.

Ace Sharpening & Co. Ace Sharpening & Co What about clipper blade sharpening wheels?

What is it that makes one wheel better than another wheel? The short answer is simple; the trueness of the surface, and the angle of the taper that is used for hollow grinding the cutters. If the hollow grinding taper is wrong it does not matter how good the rest of the wheel is, what the wheel is made of or how good it looks. Your clipper blades will not cut the way they could or should if the taper is wrong. If your wheel has the correct taper then it does not matter if you are using a small 14” wheel or a large 24” wheel. As far as the size of a good wheel goes I personally do not make any wheels smaller than 12” for professional use. I used to wonder why Oster Co. made a 24” wheel and Andis Co. only made a 21” wheel.

First what is grit? Grit is an abrasive powder. The type of grit used to sharpen clipper blades on an aluminum clipper sharpening wheel is called ‘brown fused aluminum oxide powder’ it is the same material used to make grinding wheels for bench grinders, also it can be used as a medium for sand blasting to blast the paint off of metal parts. Clipper blade sharpening is just another use for this material. I use what is called ‘wheel quality’ brown fused aluminum oxide. This is the quality that is required to make grinding wheels for bench grinders. Not that this could happen while using powdered grit to sharpen clipper blades, (The aluminum oxide must be bonded together like it is in a grinding wheel to explode.) but I am thinking why not get the kind of abrasives that have the impurities already taken out, the impurities don’t sharpen anything, so it is best to get grit that doesn’t have any in the first place.

You use it to cut paper, cardboard or aluminium foil, but perhaps also herbs, vegetables and even meat and fish. Not that surprising then that in time the blades of scissors lose their sharpness. You notice it when you need to apply more pressure and you can no longer cut from the beak to the tip of the scissors in one go.

In that case there is only one thing left to do: sharpen your pair of scissors. For sharpening scissors the same applies as when sharpening knives: you can easily do it yourself.
