Re: SS Jointer Blade Sharpening Advice and Questions

Yea- i don't have a belt sander, but i did wonder which direction the belt travelled past the blade there in that picture.
If the sander runs clockwise, this would be the direction you want.

Re: Two Tools to use for Table to Blade Alignment

Hey Dusty - your image of the dial gauge reminded me of thought i had when doing a setup. It looks like the dial gauge is making an angle (possibly in 2 directions) to what would be the surface normal (the plate) . I had something similar due to something being in the way or wanting to land on my sa...

Re: SS Jointer Blade Sharpening Advice and Questions

Re: SS Jointer Blade Sharpening Advice and Questions

I built a jig for myself. It holds 3 blades. The slot angle is such that the top of the blades run parallel and at same height to that piece of purple heart (?). The angle is based on the blade angle itself ..which i forget at the moment. I think i put something on the purple heart riser to avoid sa...

Re: MAG-DRO Alignment Tool Option

Pretty interesting little device. The one comment I have is that the old dial gauge indicator is spring loaded-so it follows blade surface whether the blade gets closer or further from the miter slot. The Wixey caliper you have (same as mine) tends to hold its position...so if it encounters a high s...

Re: Bandsaw drift, is this normal?

I had this problem with mine on resaw until i added a teflon screw to hold the guide shaft from moving side to side. I could actually see it shifting during the resaw cut. Mine typically would start straight then cut in toward the fence..where it would generally stay for the rest of the cut. It wasn...

Re: 2nd Game Board

Alright- he did 3 polyurethane coats and doesn't want to do more ...but it definitely came out great and we had a good time in the making of it. These old games have alot more play depth and strategy to them than things like Monopoly and Candyland :) Back of the board: Red Oak 3/4 Ply + Leopard Wood...

Re: If you are interested in what looks like a good deal

I had that problem of battery updates with my old Ryobi cordless drill + flashlight (nicd i think). Ryobi stopped supporting it (after many years) but would ya know it- a Chinese manufacturer made a replacement which has allowed me to continue to use it, although I have also upgraded to a 20V Dewalt...

Re: POWER STATION NEXT?

I looked at that and wondered what parts of that list are needed to build a power station?

Might be a good time to consider cobbling one together.
