Re: SPAM REPORTS

Thank you moderator for your efforts. Those criteria are reasonable, as is the acceptance criteria. Spam is annoying, deceptive, possibly hazardous, and detracts from everyone's enjoyment of this forum. What the point of this cyber-pestering is is anyone's guess. I cannot see these hidden links oth...

Re: looking for help pricing a Mark VII to sell

When we were sliding it, the plastic teeth on one tube partially broke off. Any idea where I can get those? I didn't see anything in the manual or parts book. Any other info anyone has, just let me know. Thanks! At one point someone was 3d printing them and selling on eBay, but I don't see them now...

If you or your husband owns a Shopsmith, then you could turn wine bottle stoppers using the kits from Ruth Niles.

Re: Anyone use the bandsaw for cutting metal?

I have cut soft metals, aluminum and brass, on mine using the normal blades for wood. For thin pieces it helps to back with wood.

Re: Mark V vibration while turning bowls

Also check that the insert is fully seated in the back of the chuck. As I recall there have been reports of people having vibration issues due to that. The G3 manual I found on the Nova web site is pretty sketchy on mounting the insert, it is covered in more detail in the SuperNova2 manual SuperNova...

Re: I have a friend (with a SS Mark V)

Ok, Bandsaw Questions: 1. How much play is acceptable in the wheels? I measure 1/32 wobble in upper and lower. With the blade off, the bottom wheel is quiet. Upper wheel has vibration when spun by hand. 2. The backing bearing closest to the tension assembly wasn't rolling until I fed it a couple dr...

Not a clickable link, but the last eight characters in the original post do go to a web site, that interestingly sells domain names, if keyed into a browser.

Re: Wheelchair user/ lower way rail REMOVAL.

The 10E/ER's use a wooden bench instead of bench tubes, so definitely possible. You may get some ideas from this video. The subject used his Mark V to turn duck calls, so primarily lathe work, and had it mounted on a bench to facilitate working while sitting. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F0MJS9jM...
