Re: Wiring a new shop - what considerations?

I put in 3, 20A circuits to be on the safe side and for potential "new" tools. 1. SS is on its own 110/20A (didnt want to go the 220 route). I think the powerpro manual says the unit can pull 13-14A...so I err'd on the safe side. 2. Jet Dust Collector on its own 110/20A . Although the curr...

Re: Blade wobble Two Machines Same Problem

Is the table absolutely true to the blade?

If I press on my main table when its is only 2 post supported, it does have some movement if it is not supported by the
auxiliary table/legs. Is it possible the main table has some movement rather than the blade?

Re: Cabinet job gone bad

A well deserved gift of appreciation.

Lets hope your generous nature rubs off on a few more citizens !

Sincerely hope the guy who went missing is OK..but given the details with him leaving all his equipment etc, it doesnt sound like that part of the story is going to end well.

Re: Weekend Work

The stained parts are plywood (3/4" maybe) , the legs/frame are ripped down 2x4 pine. All hand sanded to 180 grit i think. Leftover pieces I had in the pile. I screwed up in assembling it ahead of stain/paint..which became a bear chasing stain and white paint around the various pieces-but its m...

Weekend Work

Experimented with something a few of the low altitude members of my household can make good use of. I think I would forego the screws next time and try some wood slots/joints- but my confidence level isnt quite there yet.

Still need to find out if it will support them =)

Re: 2nd project-which should have been first!

Ya-its pretty humid here in NC..things take some time to dry out.

I was thinking about a small fan, or maybe an old 20W lightbulb.

Do you think a small fan in an enclosed box would move air enough to
aid drying?

2nd project-which should have been first!

Hey all- I realized after starting the staining / finishing on my first project that everytime I stained something, everything had to stop in the shop to keep the dust down. This was difficult-as I tend to want to keep going once Im started up . So I had this old metal half height shelf with a missi...

Re: Replacing Tires and Blade on the Bandsaw

I've had good luck using "Goo Gone" on these tenacious adhesive layers under the bandsaw tires as well as under the disc sander sheets. You have to scrape it down first as mentioned above but once its a thin layer-this stuff is good to clean to the final surfaces. On the bandsaw- once you ...
