Glad things are working for you Charles. Nice looking machine. Please satisfy my curiosity though (I am have been lurking on this one) what was the issue they resolved?

Agreed !

Inquiring minds (and me !) want to know.

The saw is looking GREAT !!!

And … I’m guessing … will cut a WHOLE LOT better with a motor that actually works !

The motor was overheating that reason it cut off. And the bearing had push itself out that was causing the overheating.

Hey, Charles ....

Off topic, but …

Have you thought about just ducting your dust collector (I see it in the corner, and it reminded me) to the OUTSIDE ?

I mean … your shed is not heated or air-conditioned, right ? That’s the usual thing to be concerned about, if you DO duct your DC to the outside, but … for you …. you could just install a dryer vent, use a chip separator between your tools and the DC, and then …. put a piece of hose between the DC and the dryer vent, and …. not ever have to worry about breathing fine sawdust, again.

Just a thought. Your cartridge filter is excellent, but … in theory … it’s still not as good as just blowing the dust outside the shed !

My shop is not heated or air conditioned. I thought about that Neil.

Have your say...
