Trying to decide if I want to pop on this one for more upgrades. To what is the saw blade attached? I can go with He...

Very interesting, but garly piece of oak that even defied the Easy Wood carbide tools. The Sorby Ultima conquered it in the end. The thing about cast parts is that they fatique and give up the ghost sometimes. I have the universal tool rest so I am not down, but I really like to use the regular tool...

Dusty was dead on with the call for screw #9. I had to release the headstock ways to find the hole. Thanks for saving me a lot of time searching.

Large Allen Screw

While using my joiner, I heard a noise soon followed by a large (~1/2" dia.) allen screw bouncing on the floor between the joiner and the headstock area of my SS. The SS still worked fine with no other noise. The noise I heard seemed to be from the headstock area. So far I haven't been able to ...
