A brush with death... - 8 replies
Well okay, these brushes aren’t exactly dead yet. But they will die and when they do I want to have replacements at the ready. The only problem is I have no idea what make and model this router is. It was modified by someone for a specific purpose before I inherited it and I don’t have any documentation or even any othe...

Powermatic-Houdaille Jointer Problem - 11 replies
Our mill guy dodged a bullet. We have an older Powermatic 17-1/2” Jointer and as he was adjusting the infeed table height he said it suddenly collapsed on him and the front edge of the table went into cutters. At first I thought he must have done something wrong but after I took it apart I discovered that the two bolts supporting the...

Spring Miter Clamp Set - 4 replies
I had a set of Spring Miter Clamps on my amazon wishlist and I ended up getting two sets. Long story short I would have to pay for shipping to return them and would only get a store credit which means I would pay shipping on whatever I bought with the credit as well. The original cost was $50 plus $9 shipping but I’m letting them go for...

Powermatic 1150A variable speed drill press - 7 replies
I bought this drill press from fellow lumberjock MedicKen and it works great… I just never use it. I also plagiarized his post when I created this craigslist post (sorry buddy). http://losangeles.craigslist.org/wst/tls/2718938248.html

Need help repairing SawStop - 6 replies
Hi guys, I hope someone out there has had their Sawstop apart or maybe even someone is a qualified service tech. I volunteered to replace the to miter gears in our Sawstop Industrial Cabinet saw and I thought I should research it first so I would know how much time and muscle it would take. These are the two gears involved in raising the b...

Lie-Nielsen coming to SoCal - 2 replies
First. I hope I didn’t post this in the wrong forum. I thought about the Coffee Lounge but this seemed more appropriate. For all the Southern California LJer’s I just found out that Lie-Nielsen is bringing their roadshow to Cerritos College in January.

It's a shame - 6 replies
Somebody gave me this cabinet because they thought I might want the doors. Which I do, but it’s a shame this piece got left out in the elements for so long. At one point I think it could have been salvaged. As it is I may use it as a template to make another one like it. I don’t think it can be salvaged because ...

Where did I see that? A lil' help please - 5 replies
Hi guys, Hopefully one of you has a better memory than me. I think it was LJ but it might have been HR since I’ve been playing around on there lately. But a few days ago I saw a post where someone had put a cat door through their bathroom wall into the garage where they put their litter box. I didn’t comment on it since w...

I know we have many electricians out there... - 23 replies
... so here’s a question for you. I just installed security cameras around the perimeter of the house. My 200 AMP service panel is also outside. I plan to add a sub panel inside, but is there any way this sub panel can bypass the main 200 AMP breaker outside? The point being that I want to keep my cameras on if someone flips the m...

Can you help me with a bearing source? - 5 replies
Hi guys, I struggled to come up with a catchy title for this post but decided to just state what I need and see how that flies. I sold a concept to a client and now I have to implement it. I need to build a shelf, well platform really, about 12” x 16” for a customer so they can sit their Jura Z5 coffee maker on it. It will s...

My free air compressor costs me a fortune - 7 replies
Several years ago a friend of my son’s opened up a little shop. He had some connection where he could get the stuff that people returned to Costco for pennies on the dollar and resell it. I went to visit him a few times and got some good deals. One time I noticed he had two Campbell Hausfeld 4 gallon air compressors. I asked him abou...

I snagged a piece of mahogany from the shop. It didn’t match the rest of the stock that they had so they sat it aside. I have never seen a grain like this. I don’t know what it would be called. I call it “Birdseye Mahogany” but what do I know? It it so beautiful I know will have to make something really special from...

...not that there’s anything wrong with that. Apparently, I added myself as my own buddy and I can’t figure out how to remove me. I checked the help pages and emailed Martin already but I just thought I was ask here if anyone knows how to delete yourself from your own buddy list. ;;J

Bearing question - 11 replies
I have decided to replace the bearings in my Unisaw 3hp motor. Is there anyway to find out what bearings I will need to buy without taking it apart first? Or maybe I should take it about first to make sure there isn’t anything else that needs replacing? Let me know your thoughts. ;;J

I bought a older Unisaw - 9 replies
I just bought a Unisaw built in 1993. It is a 3hp 220V single phase. It has a 50” Unifence and a HTC roller base. Other than that I’m not sure what it has. It has been in storage in our shop for a couple of years. I plan to get it all tuned up before I bring it home and would appreciate all the help and advice you guys can o...
