Powermatic 66 Tear-down & Clean-up #1: Purchased 1-1-2017 for $525

01-03-2017 03:32 AM by RichmanNot | 9 comments »

Found this 1980’s era “Gold” Powermatic 66 on Craig’s list on December 30th, 2016. There were no pictures on Craig’s List. But I got a quick reply from my text to the seller. He emailed me a picture of the saw, and I told him I wanted to take a look at it. The selling price was listed at $525.00. The information in the ad said it was a 3HP single phase 230 volt. I went to see the saw on New Years Day and while the saw looked a bit rough I knew I wanted...

Jet cabinet saw re-hab #1: a new cener piece for the shop..... needs a little TLC

06-29-2012 03:39 AM by Mainiac Matt | 8 comments »

I posted about my good fortune scoring this early 80’s Jet CTAS10 with Biesemeyer fence and 50” table…. Here she is…. just needs a little TLC I hit the top with course steel wool to get the flakey red rust off upon taking things apart I have these observations… The Biesemeyer fence is really rugged…. tube is straight as and arrow, even after some rough handling, and the ‘L’ brackets are really rugged… must ...

Home made Mobile base #1: Mobile base for Jet cabinet saw

12-28-2011 03:16 PM by Yostriker | 5 comments »

Hello all, I have been a big fan of LJ for a long while now and thought I would share some of my experiences with everyone. I recently (about a year ago) purchased a Jet cabinet saw, and I looked all over for information on building a Mobile base for it. I needed a mobile base because the space I have for my shop is only 1.5 car garage, and space is very much a premium. I found a lot of info on LJ and other sites for building mobile bases. I would like to share what I have done to make a g...

Tools #1: Grizzly G1023SL Table Saw

03-23-2011 07:43 PM by AmandasHusband | 10 comments »

I’ve come across some deals on Craigslist since I’ve been tool hunting over the past year and a half. But the one I got this weekend was probably my best. On Saturday March 12th, the listing “Grizzly Table Saw” popped up. In the descriptiion all it said was: ”Grizzly table saw, seldom used, great condition, 120/240 V, extention table and shop fox fence. $400 Firm” It was only posted 15, maybe 20 minutes when I saw it. No phone number so I sent a...

Delta Unisaw

01-19-2010 06:57 AM by Grandson_Of_Rue | 3 comments »

This is my grandfather’s 1967 Delta Unisaw. It sat for years after his death from the time I was about 10 till I was in my first house at 25. Took minimal clean up and was ready to go. It had the original fence so I purchased a Delta upgrade. Not as nice as the Beisemeyer but not as expensive either. It was an easy bolt on and was exact right out of the box. You can also see my Jessem Miter which is a fantastic Miter. I run Freud blades and between these three upgrades the cuts on th...

Kitchen Remodel #3: New Saw!! Big wait :-(

03-31-2008 07:06 PM by SteveV | 8 comments »

I discovered, while building my prototype cabinet, that I need a new tool!! My contractor saw just won’t cut it (sorry for the pun). So after researching the you know what out of the TS market I’ve decided to stick with Grizzly and try their new G0651 (pic below). The only down side to this is I will have to wait 4-6 weeks before these new saws are shipping. This is a real bummer as I’m making progress on this project but to tell you the truth there are really no other...
