    Bob,
    Glad i could help. The poplar does carve pretty decent. As you get to the point of wanting to produce things to keep or sell, hardwoods will give you a nicer result with less work to clean it up. Dan just started a thread today showing a clock face that he produced out of oak, and claims no sanding needed. I have been lucky with several that way in cherry, maple, and oak. Oak is a little more open grained, so it wont hold intricate detail quite as well as the other two, but it sure finishes nicely.

    Good luck, and thank you for your service to our country (the agent orange comment) I assume you are a veteran.

    Happy Carving,

    Ron

    Thanks for the info. Yes I am a veteran 3 tours in Nam and retired after 20 years. I am looking for the Moly lube for the flexshaft but all I can find is Moly lube with graphite . Will this work?

    I found the Moly Lube at Home Depot, not sure if the graphite will help.
    If it doesn't fit force it. If it breaks then it needed replacing anyway.

    use the stuff with graphite. Graphite will store heat and the flex shaft will heat up more. Found it out the hard way. I got moly lube without graphite at O'reilly's autoparts 12 oz. for $3.99. The only reason it was O'reilly's is they were the closest ones to me but I'm sure other autopartstores carry it too.

    Hi dwight,

    First off Welcome to the Forum.
    Converting .ptn files to .mpc ---Open Designer and press the shell shaped icon that will open your .ptn library folders,
    Right click to menu and select import, pick the folder or place you have the .ptn you want to convert and click on it.
    The file will be added to your library files. clicking on the file and move it to you project board,
    now you can work on it or save it as a .mpc file
