Re: Beginning fixing up a 10E — Need help please

Yeah, it would be nice to see some analytics to know for sure, but definitely seems like activity is way down the last 6+ months. Also, I haven't kept up with the FB groups, but checking just now I don't see as much activity/day there as what I used to see a year ago. Either everyone is very busy in...

Re: Making a Dovetailed Adventure Chest with Shaper Origin

I feel like I have to chime in here even though Ed addressed it. The strongest application of the SO is making joints. That is 90% of what I use it for even though I have a traditional gantry CNC as well. Dovetails is not one of its strong points but if you are careful they can be done as this vide...

Re: New Brand of Cordless Tools from Lowes - FLEX

Interesting because from everything I have seen and heard everyone is raving about the new flex tools. Flex is not a new brand it was in Europe for years, Chervon ( maker of EGO, Craftsman, Masterforce, Skill, Skillsaw, Kobalt and others) bought the company and is expanding the product line here in...

Re: New Brand of Cordless Tools from Lowes - FLEX

Lowes just launched the FLEX line of cordless tools yesterday. I believe they sent free tools to certain social media influencers with the caveat that they don't give their opinion until after it launched yesterday. I don't know the channel linked below, but this is the first review that I could fin...

Re: Beginning fixing up a 10E — Need help please

Jumpmaster, John and JPG were only trying to help, so please treat them with respect. Conversing online (e-mail, forums, DM, etc.) is difficult because you can't sense the tone or inflection of the person talking and you can't see facial expressions. I have been learning this lesson myself for a lon...

Re: Making a Dovetailed Adventure Chest with Shaper Origin

Where did he show that. I guess I missed it. The circle on the screen is 1/2" in diameter. As long as the cut line is any where inside that circle Shaper will adjust and cut exactly where you tell it to. If you wander outside the circle Shaper will instantly retract. :confused: John, It is aro...

Re: Making a Dovetailed Adventure Chest with Shaper Origin

Ed, Thanks. This was an interesting video and much more in-depth showing the Shaper Origin in action than other videos I have seen. When they came out with the SO Workstation it looked like a great platform, to me, for doing unique and/or special joinery applications with the SO. However in this vid...

Re: New Nova 3G chuck from SS

Shown above are the differences between a Pro-Tek and ordinary G3 chuck. The tightening direction is now clockwise which is nice to have in general, and it uses star point screws instead ordinary hex cap screws. Doesn't sound like earth shattering differences to me, but I should have expected somet...

Re: New Nova 3G chuck from SS

So, I got the Nova G3 chuck from Shopsmith "on sale" in 2019. I have gotten some good use out of it so far and have no frame of reference since this was my first lathe chuck, though I do wonder if I shouldn't upgrade to the SuperNova2 or another brand chuck in the future. I just want to po...
