Table saw restoration #1: New (to me) Craftsman Table Saw - edited photos and text

11-23-2016 01:54 PM by Robin1 | 12 comments »

Thanks to Knotscott, who lives close by, I found a craftsman in very good shape. I’ve upgraded the belt with a link belt from Harbor Freight (good deal) and the fence with a Vega Pro 40. Just need to get the other wing on, add an extension table and ZCI and do something about the switch. Works great though! (Any advice on the switch would be appreciated. The original set-up had the motor plugging into the switch and the switch plugging into the wall. I’m assuming I’ll ha...

Delta 46-715 Lathe Refurbish Project #7: Controls Done and Turning Zinc!!

After cutting the motor mount off the frame with a grinder, I put it on the motor and Shazam… it works perfect. I need to get a belt f...

Jet JBS-18 Bandsaw Restoration #2: Getting the Jet BS Up and Running

08-27-2013 02:48 AM by FreezFurn | 0 comments »

It took me quite some time to get 240v ran to the basement, but the installation of a new gas stove right above me in the kitchen could not have been better timed. So, I extended the line from the stove and added two new outlets in the ceiling of my shop. I did not want to invest too much money into a lemon, so I hesitantly hooked it up to the new wiring. It cranked up and ran very loudly with no blade. Which brings me to bearings. Here is a pic of the old upper wheel bearings. They were...
