Right off I could see it would be useful at making parallel lines at 1/8” increments. The end looks like it might be a protractor of some kind and the thin bar in the middle moves but not very far right now. Mos...

Jet 1442 Wood Lathe - Reeves Drive - 9 replies

I took the cover off to observe the action of the Reeves drive and found the driving pulley on the motor does not get real skinny when you adjust the driven pulley real wide. I think I need to remove the motor pulley and clean the shaft and the pulley t...

Origin of one of our Woodworking Tool Companies - 16 replies
This is true. I looked it up. If you were in the market for a watch in 1880, would you know where to get one? You would go to a store, right? Well, of course you could do that, but if you wanted one that was cheaper and a bit better than most of the store watches, you went to the train station! Sound a bit funny? Well, for about 500 towns acr...

Saw Stop - 20 replies
They have a Saw Stop table saw in the high school where I work with kids on turning and that saw is extremely hard to crank up from the full lowered position where the teacher requires it to be when not in use.
