Re: A Proto-ShopSmith available on CL

Multiple station power tools were around before the Shopsmith was even an idea. The American Floor Surfacing Machine Company was not the only makers of multi station tools but theirs is a more compact tool than most. The idea of a single bench with multiple tools driven off a singe motor preceded th...

Re: Jigsaw Blades

I have used the spiral blades Ed referred to on my Scroll Saw also but have not tried them on my Jig Saws. An important thing to note is the difference on how the Jig Saws and the Scroll Saws work. Because the Jig Saw uses spring tension on the blade from the upper arm instead of even tension betwee...

Re: speed reducer sparks

rmoore, This is a case where pictures will help in figuring out the problem(s). David and JPG have given you some things to check and I agree based on the description of the problem. It may be a good time to do some removal of parts to check their condition and function. One being the Speed Control ...

Re: I love my 10ER, but…

The Dust Collection was a later addition to the Bandsaw (around the early 90's) but can be added. The Cover is plastic so should be fine using paints made for use on plastic parts. When I restored my 1956 Bandsaw I used some plastic polish on the cover and it looks great now. I did repaint the silve...

Re: 10e owner, new to forum, what to do with the unit

rrr10eowner, Just some other thoughts, If you do make a storage bench in the original 5 foot length not only would you have more storage space but you would still be able to use your 10E for the other functions if the need arises.

Re: I love my 10ER, but…

Marc, Here is some good news for you on documentation for the Belt Sander and Bandsaw. The Belt Sander only had one real change over the years and that was going from a 1-1/4" to a 2-1/2" dust collection port. It is an easy and worth while change to make. I did it on my 1977 Belt Sander. A...

Re: Saw guard. For. 10er. Seattle Washington. To far for me

JPG, You are right. "Location Location Location." That is everything. DOWeaver, Are you the one who offered the seller $150 for just the Guard? It did get it and was the only bidder. I picked it up yesterday. A three and a half hour drive each way. The 10ER is in great shape, almost comple...
