Re: Table Line Up

It sounds as though I failed to describe how mine are. My set screw holes are not threaded all the way to the top. The upper portion of the hole is larger and allows the set screw to fall out once disengaged from the threads. Opps I just realized that I very cleverly derailed this thread and changed...

Re: Magnetic Tape on 520 Front Rails

Thanks for the link...and...probably the solution to my problem. A lot less expenshive than buying new rails with magnetic strips. :rolleyes: Dusty, If you purchase it let us know how it goes and I will do the same. I haven't ordered it yet, but seriously considering it. Did Shopsmith offer any sol...

Re: Magnetic Tape on 520 Front Rails

Has anyone ever used magnetic tape made of Neodymium Rare Earth magnets on any projects (see link below)? This stuff is supposed to be much stronger than the standard type of magnetic tape. It comes in 12.5mm wide strips which would be an improvement to the 11.25mm magnetic strip on my 520 tables. ...

Re: New in the shop "The generic thread"

Someone needs to make one with a built in LED putting a spot of light right on the mark. Since I'm not a teenager anymore my alignment skills have degraded a lot. It's not just my eyes, stiffening joints make small adjustments more difficult also. I do like using the fence on my SS drill press beca...

Re: Table Line Up

These set screws were NOT screwed in from the top. To get them out I have to remove the nylon glides. They should be able to screw up to provide clear passage for 1 1/4" rod or the Allen wrench. Perhaps a manufacturing defect. They top out and won't budge. I am surprised but then my miter gaug...

Re: Magnetic Tape on 520 Front Rails

I have been in touch with CS and they are working on my problem. We have exchanged two or three emails. Denise has been very responsive.

Re: New in the shop "The generic thread"

Don't blame it on the teen years thingy. I have a couple marks just like that, probably created in exactly the same way and I am no teenager.

Re: Table Line Up - Miter Gauge

The parts view for the miter gauge shows the nylon screws (270) but does not show the set screws above them. Reading posts I concluded that all gauges have these. If I back them out until they stop they still block the hole where an allen wrench or 1/4" rod can be inserted. Before I mess somet...

Re: Magnetic Tape on 520 Front Rails

Dusty, I found this link which may be helpful. It could be that the magnetic tape used here is a multi-pole magnet type. If so, it has alternating magnets down the length so trying to re-magnetize it won't work. You'd have to replace the magnetic tape. https://www.hsmagnets.com/blog/parts-flexible-...

Re: Magnetic Tape on 520 Front Rails

I have tried this but I don't sense that the tape magnet is any stronger than it was when I began. Now this might be because I have done something wrong. I passed my magnetic bar from left to right across the tape magnet a half dozen or more times. No obvious change. Polarization of my neodymium bar...
