Jet JBS-18 Bandsaw Restoration #1: Buying the Beast

08-06-2013 02:35 AM by FreezFurn | 2 comments »

I found this beastly bandsaw at an estate sale earlier this summer. I have been looking for an older 14 inch in working condition for quite some time for the right price, but Craigslist and other estate sales were not working out within my budget. I want a saw that can resaw and cut out bowl or pen blanks easily. Well this one seemed to fit the bill. I cannot find anything about it on the web, so I am posting this hoping someone can learn from my experience in trying to bring it back to l...

Goodell Pratt 125 Bench Lathe #6: Over complicating things [updated]

02-05-2013 10:29 PM by Rick M. | 2 comments »

[UPDATE: Scrap this idea, it doesn’t work. When I first tested the vibration was minimal but now it’s setting off an oscillation that makes it unworkable. Guess I will go back to over-complicating.] The motor mount I built was too low and allowed the pulley belt to rub the lathe frame. In the last entry I mentioned there were two solutions to the problem: 1: Create a raised platform for the motor that will bring it to the height of the lathe pulleys.2: Build a jackshaft that...

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). I wonder if I went with one of these new hi performance belts or if I need to replace the motor arbor with something that will hold the belt se...

AWFS 2009 #1: Overview & Belt Sander Races

07-23-2009 12:58 AM by thewoodwhisperer | 8 comments »

We just got back from another great AWFS Fair in Las Vegas. If you aren’t familiar, AWFS is the Association of Woodworking & Furnishings Suppliers and its a show that occurs every other year at the Las Vegas Convention Center. This is just a quick video to give you an idea of what the show is like. Booths and product displays as far as the eye can see and lots of neat stuff to drool over. I even have some footage of the all wood sports car, “The Splinter”, as well as ...

Stationary Belt Sander #1: SCORE!!!

08-08-2008 11:38 AM by SteveKorz | 23 comments »

A very good friend of mine has a father that is an avid woodworker. He chip carves, and makes many other things such as wooden spoons and the like on his drawhorse. He’s a very talented man. Anyway, he decided that he wanted a new stationary belt sander, and bought one. The older stationary sander was a Craftsman, and it had a few years under its belt. The sander sat in the corner of the barn near the tractors, and one day my friend asked his dad if he wanted to get rid of it. He ...

Dust Collector #1: The need for change

04-19-2008 04:52 PM by GaryK | 12 comments »

For some reason I have had a problem lately with the bags on my dust collector (DC) coming off during use.Needless to say it made quite a mess. It seemed that I couldn’t get the cloth belts that held the bagson any tighter. My first thought was to get a canister as a retrofit, but about 10 years ago the DC Ibought was a generic brand. A Reliant. So nothing I found would fit it. Here’s my current system: So I figured that I needed to look into a better system for attachin...
