Re: Face frame Clamps, the question

Why not use long straps with a ratchet? I have used them in various situations and they have worked find. If the strap has to pass over the actual joint (rather than off to the side) I used small blocks of wood to lift the strap clear of the actually joint.

Re: Just Finished My First Shopsmith Project

Looks great!
Tip: a coat of shellac and a very very light sanding will prevent maple from botching when staining.

Re: Shopsmith 6000

Just to be sure I went back and watched the video again. When he turned it on I could hear the motor start but I saw no movement at all in either the dust hood or the plastic dust collection bag. I would almost be willing to say the only thing turning was the motor the fan I my opinion was either no...

Re: Shopsmith 6000

Ed, I can't speak to the unit in the video, but I own three DC3300's and worked with dozens of them during my days at Shopsmith and I assure you, a clean or new hood will not be taunt. I'll happily demonstrate in a video. Well my DC3300 must be an exception, because when I turn it on with a clean h...

Re: Shopsmith 6000

When a DC3300 filter hood is new or freshly cleaned it doesn’t offer much resistance to the air, so it doesn’t inflate aggressively as it will when the hood gets a bit of a cake built. Totally normal behavior. Scott Scott not to be contrary but on my DC3300 every time I turned it on the Dust hood p...

Re: Graphene Coating instead of JPW???

Marc proposed his use as a test. Why not wait until the end of the test to develop any opinion or change?

Re: Shopsmith won't turn off

I think it is more likely that a high voltage draw welded the switch contacts. But only a dissection of a faulty switch would tell the answer.

Shopsmith 6000

There is a YouTube video of the conversion of the DC 3300 to the 6000 https://youtu.be/sE2phVaZzYw The thing that bothers me is when completed and when he turned the converted machine on neither the dust hood nor the collection bag seems to inflate like my DC 3300 does. On my machine the dust hood a...

Re: Broken wheels

As I said before I had a set of similar wheels I got from Woodcraft. I think? They were on my workbench about 5 years. In that time I probably moved my bench about 10 times always on smooth concrete. No chemicals were ever on them that I know of. The orange urethane portion broke down and started ch...
