That's a very small saw, more suited to pruning and trimming. It might work for a very small tree, but that's not what it's made for.

Re: Drill Chuck Key Jams

Is this still clear as mud or did it help? It helped. I don't have any Cushman or Multi-Craft, so I've been using 'small' gear in reference to the third chuck in your picture, aka 'unknown,' and only in comparison to the 4th. So yeah, I was thrown off. Today I'm rebuilding my Jacobs 3326. I decided...

Runout at Upper Aux Spindle

I mounted a drill chuck on the upper auxiliary spindle of my ~2 year old DIY PowerPro today and was surprised that it exhibited a large amount of runout. I checked runout on another machine using a 3-3/4" lathe face plate, measured about +/- 0.001" from where I zeroed it. I measured about ...

Re: Drill Chuck Key Jams

I wouldn't describe any of the fits as snug, but the 'key' difference is the smaller gear. I have two chucks that the 'large gear' key jams in, both work correctly with the 'small gear' key. The large gear prevents the key from remaining square to the chuck when fully inserted, so the pilot ends up ...

Re: Drill Chuck Key Jams

Both were filled logo before cleaning them up. ;) As near as I can tell, your key labeled "unknown" is the same key that worked significantly better on the chuck on the right in my last picture. I am going mostly by the look of the thumb rest and gear. I think I saw others like both exampl...

Re: Headstock lock

I did the same thing and never realized I could put the washers on just by removing the back side wedge. I did manage to remember to put the washers and plastic coil stuff on before getting the whole assembly in place when I swapped parts around between 2 PowerPros recently to diagnose a problem. M...

Re: Holes on miter gauge

The miter gauge has two holes on either side..what are they for??20220831_155018.jpg 1) The horizontal holes can hold a stop rod for repetitive crosscuts (https://www.shopsmith.com/ownersite/catalog/swd_mitergauge.htm) OR a long allen-type wrench (or alternative long thingy) for aligning the miter ...

Re: Headstock lock

You want to turn both wedges in toward the center, this allows enough free play to get the assembly in or out of the headstock. He cut the rod with a hacksaw to start with. Unnecessary if he understood the direction of the screw on the handle end. I started giving him the same instructions before r...

Re: JessEm's Pow-R-Tek SR Router - ER20 collets and "special" cooling

That's quite the tool for the person that needs a lot of run time and more precise speed control. It's starting to bridge the gap between a woodworking router and a CNC spindle. I'm now tracking two woodworking routers with ER collets, this and the SpinRite from Woodpeckers, which I bought ~last ye...

Re: Mark V Speed Control

I just upgraded my greenie with a 1.125 motor complete with sheaves. As a result I had to adjust my high speed stop. I don't know what the difference is between the sheaves or spring on my old 3/4 hp setup vs the new 1 1/8 hp setup but there is one. Since there is no low speed stop, I can now dial ...
