Lessons... #1: Inheriting Tools

04-21-2009 11:30 PM by Jim | 13 comments »

I recently went digging through my late Grandfather’s garage and found a practically new Craftsman 1 1/2hp router with the box, but no instructions. I decided to buy a small router table at a local box store knowing it wasn’t anything great but just something to try my hand at for the time being. I finally got around to using it today. I’m finally finishing the cabinet doors I’ve been putting off for months, and decided to route the dadoes using the table. For some rea...

Laguna NLX31 #1: Problem with Motors

I have a Laguna NLX31 combination machine with table saw, jointer/planer, and shaper.The table saw motor works great but the jointer and shaper motors are running slowly maybe something like half speed. I have had the motor and capacitors checked, the 40uF and a 50uF capacitors were within uF tolerance, but I have since replaced with with new. That did not fix the problem.

New video feed

01-13-2011 05:13 PM by Chris Davis | 9 comments »

I am trying out a new video feed. The service I was using before and have been using for years just kept adding ads and then got to the point to where they’d put a commercial on the videos and the feed at start-up.
