Tenons too loose? - 10 replies
So I’m in the process of building a bed for my son. He wanted a raised panel bed. Gave me a pic and so I’m off to the races… My problem is, I put the cart before the horse. I cut the tenons on the stiles then didn’t pay attention when I cut the grooves on the rails. Now the stiles are kind of loose. Meaning itR...

Got me some "old arn" - 9 replies
Went down and picked this up Sat. Only about an hours drive. Guy was real nice and even helped me load it. Said his dad left it to him and he has no use for it. It was given to his dad years ago. After I got it home and looked at it more, there’s a label on there about an inspection from 1972 from the military. Works out cause he’...

Thinking about this PM 50 jointer as an upgrade - 10 replies
As I get along in my woodworking skills, I come to realize that my introductory tools have served their purpose and it’s time to move on. I still use them when I work on projects, but I also stay on the lookout for something better. I came across this one. Looked at manuals and pics on OWWM and it looks like I could replace the moto...

New t/s motor...which wire goes where? - 2 replies
I’m replacing my old craftsman motor with a new Baldor 1hp (L1309A). It was like Christmas when the brown truck showed up. Got it unpacked and just stared at it for a while!!!! Then I wanted to hear it purr…well, that didn’t happen last night. Apparently these have all kinds of wires. Looking at the label, I’m hookin...

Baldor or Leeson for t/s motor - 11 replies
Searching around, there are hit and miss topics about which is “better”. From what I’ve read, Baldor is at the top of the list with Leeson a close second. Reason I’m looking is because the motor on my 80’s craftsman saw has a bad bearing. The guy at the motor shop said the ball bearing was easily replaceable, b...

Am I starving my d/c? - 10 replies
So I have a used Jet 1 1/2hp d/c. I put a Wynn filter on it (smart move on my part ;) ). It has a 6” inlet and right now I have a Y that goes into 4”. I have one hose running to my tablesaw then the other one on what ever tool I’m working with at the time. I only use one hose at a time and I don’t have a blast gate ye...

Should I get this Unisaw? - 18 replies
Doing my usual browsing around and came across this. I have a mid 80s contractor saw that has served me well for many years. But I’m thinking it might be time to expand a little bit. The guy said he’s used it for years, but recently found him something else and doesn’t need extra table saws. It’s wired for 220 (which ...

Big gulp underneath a tablesaw - 19 replies
So after a couple of failed attempts to come up with a way to fasten a box under my 80’s Craftsman contractors saw, I turned to the internet and found this thing… Concept looks good. Think it would work for underneath? Don’t know if the flange is flat all the way around though.

Need some info on this old b/s... - 19 replies
We have an auction coming up this weekend and this is a pic of the stuff that got my eye. Anyone have any info or care to wager what I should/shouldn’t bid? Saw one on OWWM, but they didn’t talk price. Wondering what the odds are I can replace the belt :) Thanks, TNT

Howdy all - I’m looking for a possible simple solution to move my hose from tool to tool. I’ve looked at the Rockler dust Right kit http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?page=30200 but the more I look at it, the more I think, there has to be a better (cheaper) way. What about getting some PVC fitting from the hardware store and j...

Your thougts on a Powermatic 043 Bandsaw - 0 replies
Cruising around on c/l, I found an ad for a fella selling his bandsaw. Here’s his info: ”I am selling my Powermatic Model 043 14” Band Saw. I have used it very lightly in my hobby as a woodworker. The saw comes with its original stand and a rolling base. It is all in good shape. This band saw was made in Taiwan for Pow...

New Super Dust Deputy (Molded Plastic) - 41 replies
Got this email today. Been holding out on getting the metal one. This design looks a little different than the metal one. http://www.oneida-air.com/inventoryD.asp?item_no=AXD002030A&CatId=%7b17F46883-40BB-471E-982F-E5F28583241B%7d Any constructive thoughts? I’m going to put it in front of my 1 1/2 hp JET (w/a Wynn filter).

I’m still piecing how I want to hook up my d/c to my tools. Getting to the t/s, I was wondering about making a box go all the way to the floor and hooking the hose up to it that way vs. a board on the frame just below the blade. I think cabinet saws have their ports at the bottom and was wondering if anyone has tried this or not on thei...

Think this D/C solution will work? - 13 replies
Hello all - First post here…always seem to get pointed to here from google so I figure I might as well join up :) Just scored a used Jet DC-1100 and some ducting. I’ve been using a dust deputy for a few years and enjoy it. This is my first real d/c though and I know that I need to ditch the 30m bags and get me a Wynn filter. ...
