Anyone having the same problem with **&@@! Jet?

04-10-2014 02:39 PM by eldercop | 10 comments »

Lost the arbor nut on my JWTS10 table saw but had no idea it might require a new saw to replace it. Ordered the replacement nut from Jet, according to part number and diagram, waited the week plus, it arrives and doesn’t fit. I came a little unglued, being work stoppage on a much wanted project. Customer service transfers me to tech support where the conversation goes like this: Me The arbor nut you sent doesn’t fit. Tech Suport Guy I’m not surprised. M Huh? TSG Yup. W...

Table Saw Belt

09-08-2012 05:04 PM by RexInMinn | 13 comments »

I replaced my table saw belt in the spring and am finding it now slips off the motor arbor when I adjust the blade for a bevel cut. This is a 25 year old Craftsman Contractor series. I noticed a few weeks ago that the blade would not rip a 2×4 without getting hung up, smoking to beat the band and generally just not cutting it (so to speak).

Arbor/Trellis #2: Arbor/Trellis #2

06-19-2011 07:55 PM by greg48 | 0 comments »

Wow, I can’t believe that it’s been 3 months+ since I started this project. Good thing that I don’t try to earn a living on my project production. Anyway, the pieces are all cut and ready to assemble so I need to dig and pour footings (as dry as the soil is getting, it may be another 3 months). In re-sawing the old tank boards, I ran into lots of interesting stains and natural defects which I decided to leave instead of cutting them out.....Ran into natural defects such a...

Arbor/Trellis #1: Getting started

03-18-2011 06:49 PM by greg48 | 4 comments »

Good day fellow LJ’ers. I’m starting off with a new honeydew project (#2/2147) to build a redwood arbor/trellis that my wife saw a picture of in one of her several home improvement mags. I sized it for our opening and drew up plans using Sketchup and plan to utilize pegged tenon and saddle joinery instead of the bolt & screw methods used on commercial products (see following pic)... ..I’m using portions of an old redwood water tank that I helped salvage several year...
