Re: Heads Up - Bargain 'available'

I check Craigslist every morning for Shopsmith (and Shop Smith) listings. The one I linked only showed up yesterday, and it must have been seen and bought by someone else watching for good buys. The planer was stand alone for under $500, and the DC was about $150 or so. Hope a fellow forum member wa...

Re: Rustic cherry bowl

Re: Shopsmith Drill Press Vise 556416 Dimension Questions

Thanks to all for your comments, suggestions, and dimensions. I chose the Wolfcraft 4" Vise from Rockler's. And, mounted it to a small sliding plywood jig I had made years ago, so as to get full range of drilling capability. I removed part of the wood strips that slide in miter gauge slots and ...

Shopsmith Drill Press Vise 556416 Dimension Questions

I needed to drill some 1/2" and 5/16" holes in small blocks of wood yesterday, and it took 4 clamps and 9 scraps of wood to hold the pieces securely while I drilled. This started me looking at drill press vises. I have a Mark V 500, so I don't have the T-slots at the miter gauge slots. But...

Re: What am I doing wrong?

Yes, more of a rotational positioner and not for vertical support. I think of it more as a guideline, as I find it fits my setup best when NOT in contact with the rubber spacer or the way tube. But, my setup is not typical ... I use a blade with 5/8" arbor most of the time, which is longer than...

The nut is left hand threads on that arbor. And the putty in the hole at the collar is intentional, to prevent accidentally loosening it when changing blades or other accessories.

Re: What am I doing wrong?

I don't think the saw guard should be rotated for the alignment pin to touch the way tube. The top of my lower guard is parallel to the tie bar with the pin away from the way tube (I am using my longer bolt instead of the alignment pin since I can't find my pin at the moment.) IIRC, the shorter pin ...
