Ever head of a Steff RAS? - 5 replies

I picked up this saw yesterday for $100. It’s made in Italy, has a 12” blade, a 3 HP 3 phase motor, a track length of about 24”. The label has “Steff” and “530” on it, but I can only find auto-feeders made by Steff. When I search for Steff, Maggi pops up a lot, and they have 3 saws, but all are bi...

Convert HF dust collector to air cleaner? - 8 replies

I am not quite satisfied with my HF 2 HP dust collector, and will be going with something better for dust collection. That’s leaves the HF unit to be used for other things… like a DIY air cleaner. I work in a 22×22 garage, and I was thinking of mounting the blower unit on the ceiling, with the output blowing down. I would als...

Used Mini Max S45N a good deal? - 3 replies

There’s a S45N band saw posted in my local criagslist for a few weeks now. It looks complete and is listed for $800. I am not sure of the age, but it’s white in color if that is any clue. Is this a good deal for this saw? I would use the for general use, and perhaps occasional re-saw. I don’t think I would have a need to r...

Anyone own the Rigid MS255SR 10-inch miter saw? - 1 reply

I did a search, and saw that some considered this saw, but could not find any comments from owners. This looks like a really nice saw, especially for $399. I really like the idea of a soft start motor and dual lasers. And it looks like it has good capacity for cutting nested crown (6”). I just wanted to see if anyone had opinions on th...

Used G4090 avail locally, worth $800? - 16 replies

Seems like the topic of used 8” jointers is a popular one lately, so I’ll join in. There’s a Grizzly G4090 available, asking $800. It looks like I could get one of these new with shipping costs for $1100. Is it worth going used? The for sale ad says it’s wired up for 120v. Can you really get 3 HP on 120? I’d m...

Thoughts on Delta 30A Multiplex RAS? - 7 replies

I see one for sale near me, could probably pick it up for <$80. I will probably need some rebuilding, which I think I am up for. Are these good radial arm saws?

Milling >8 foot lumber - 6 replies

I am preparing to build a dining table made of white oak. The boards I have a 4/4×6,7,8 * 8+ feet long. All of the lumber needs to be milled, which I am starting now. I am curious if anyone has any good techniques to mill this efficiently. The issue I have is there is a slight bow in some of these pieces, but with the pieces being 8 fee...

Grizzly 1023 table saw dust collection prep - 6 replies

Hello, I recently bought a used Grizzly 1023 table saw (about 10-15 years old). I also picked up a HF 2HP dust collector. I have hooked up the dust collector to the saw and tried some cuts, but I am wondering if the dust collection could be improved. The saw did not come with a motor cover; however, I had the bright idea to fit a rubbermai...

Questions about Grizzly table saw - 6 replies

Hello, I bought a used Grizzly table saw yesterday, and I had a few questions about it. I am hoping you can help me out: 1) I cannot find a model number on this saw. Can anyone identify which saw this is? Here’s a photo: I does have a 3 HP 220v motor, and it appears to be made in Taiwan. My best guess is that it is a 1023,...
