Part 1: TS3650 and RS1000

1573 days ago by PASs | 0 comments »

Snagged A Ridgid TS3650 table saw and a Ridgid RS1000 radial arm saw last night.A BIG thanks to BOTIETRUCK for telling me about the listing on Craigs List.It was an hour and a half drive down to Kill Devil Hill to look at it, but we hopped in the Excursion to look at the table saw and made it an evening (and half a night by the end of everything.) Got there about 7p.m., did the talking and ended up getting the RAS as well. It’s AMAZING what you can get in the back of a Ford Excursion. W...

Part 2: Craftsman 6x48 / 9 inch belt sander, model 103.0803

208 days ago by PASs | 4 comments »

I got this off a craigslist add a few years ago. It’s old school with oil bath bearings. And tracking adjusters on both sides of the idler roller. The disk sander table has a really terrible angle adjuster, a screw wedge, but it also has two support arms that help lock the table in position. It has worked well for me although the belt has a tendency to drift.The problem was pretty bad until the rubber sleeve on the idler roller disintegrated due to dry rot.I decided to repla...

Part 3: Grinding and polishing station

158 days ago by PASs | 3 comments »

I have a thing for filing cabinets. I have 19 (nineteen) in my shop.I get them for free or dirt cheap off Craig’s List. And they are all high quality (Hon or equivalent.)A couple weeks ago I decided to consolidate my two grinders on separate stations into one master station.My main grinder was set on a rolling tool stand. It has the lathe sharpening setup underneath. The second grinder is a cheapo for general purpose grinding. The goal was to mount them back-to-back in the (futile...

Part 4: Table saw outfeed table

157 days ago by PASs | 6 comments »

I got a Ridgid 3550 table saw a few years ago off Craig’s List.I like the saw, but I’ve wanted to do an outfeed table.Since the saw is on rollers I couldn’t go with anything too big.Also the saw is shoe-horned into it’s storage spot in the garage, so size was a consideration. And I wanted the fold-down to cover the motor to stop me from snagging on things rolling it in and out of the shop. I also wanted to use just materials I already had on hand (read scraps and cu...

Part 5: Radial Arm Saw base from filing cabinets.

156 days ago by PASs | 5 comments »

Yes something else involving filing cabinets.I have an old Craftsman RAS that I can’t even sell for $75 on Craigslist, so I keep it for cutting dados for card and phone holders. It has the standard spayed leg stand where I kept a couple of empty tool boxes, but not really anything else. I got two 2-drawer cabinets a few weeks ago for $5 each, about half what I’m willing to pay for good ones.As they were a matched pair I had the opportunity to join them together to make a base f...
