Re: Rebuilding Mark V, GE 1-1/8 hp motor

The 'designer' originally was accommodating the small width of the depression in the 'cup'.

Re: Shop Smith not spinning

At 'Slow' the idler pulley is 'closed' and the motor pulley is 'open'. Idler pulley = large diameter, motor pulley = small diameter.

WHAT pray tell are you intending to adjust?

Have you lubricated the movable pulley sheaves? Methinks a pulley is not 'closing'.(motor)

Re: Mothers Day Planters

1/3 total width.

shoulder 1/3, tenon 1/3, shoulder 1/3.

To 'guarantee' alignment ALWAYS reference a common edge.

Re: Mothers Day Planters

I am curious why you made the tenons so large? That is what size router bit you had for the mortises??

Re: Its only money ????

A 2x4 is only 2"x4" when still in a log.

Subtract saw kerf, planing waste and shrinkage and it comes out 3/8" smaller. Then a while back something caused them to shrink another 1/8".

I would think using band saws today would cause them to be bigger????

Re: Its only money ????

Ohh yes. Limit supply and demand/prices will rise.

Are timber prices also escalating? Surplus says no.

Sounds like gouging.

After all those folks call a 1 1/2" x 3 1/2" stick a 2 by 4!

Re: A new owner of a shopsmith

It IS an ER. Wonder how the speed changer worked?????

Used long enough(by somebody) to require replacing the power switch.

Salvageable!
