id like to use it for shaping plugs

people use screw eyes because they are convenient ...they work fine in all but real soft wood... if you use them in soft wood a little epoxy on the threads will keep them from twisting free...

Band and scroll saws both wok fine, but if you need to make tight turns, you need to put a 3/16 or 1/4" blade on the band saw... the thinner blades are no good for ripping or resawing, I hate changing blades from one size to the next, too much time adjusting, so personally, I have both...
