I have a Ryobi TSS 220 sliding compound miter saw that I have owned since around 1993. It has been a good saw. But recently the spring that puts tension on the blade guard broke.Ryobi does not make the part anymore.Has anyone found a good substitute? The dimensions of the spring are 5/32” diameter and the distance between the holes when...

Changed the setup for my shop and moved the dust collector. I have a 3HP Transpower single stage unit. Being that it is 3HP it is wired to a 220volt 30AMP circuit. I used 12 gauge wire for the long run of wire, about 35 ft, from the outlet to the remote control relay box. I put a amp meter on the unit and it draws 10 amps while running. So th...

As the title says. I would really like to look at a Ridgid R4512 saw, up close and personal. I’m looking at buying one for my Father in-law who lives in Long Island. But before I buy it and set it up it would be nice to take an up close and personal look at one. I find it a poor method of selling that Home Depot does not keep a display mod...

A little gloat time, I paid $100.00 for it.Runs fine but it was a little dirty and a little surface rust.It will need new chisels and bits. A chuck key/tool, and I’ll paint it even though it does look fine. If I’m going to all this work to clean it up Etc. ...

Ideas on upgrading my table saw to a 3HP motor?? - 5 replies
I have a Powermatic model 63a contractors table saw and I have been searching for a used cabinet saw. I don’t really need to upgrade my saw. The Powermatic is very nice and has done everything I have asked of it. I work primarily in pine. I love the Vega fence and everything else about the saw. I noticed in Craigslist a Jet Cabinet saw 3H...

The making and using of push sticks. - 27 replies
This post made me wonder if other woodworkers have this philosophy about push sticks. http://lumberjocks.com/topics/16921#reply-173404 Over the years of using a table saw I have learned not to use plastic push sticks (PPS). The very few times that the PPS has made contact with the blade, the 1.5HP of the motor has been transferred to the P...

Was in Lowe’s 3 times today, I love house projects. Usually have to visit Lowe’s a couple of times during any project. This evening while buying some lead free solder, for a second time, since I could not find the first roll I bought. I noticed the Delta band saw and drill press along with a Hitachi table saw in the spot designate...

A friend wants to buy my Delta 16 inch 3 wheel 28-560 band saw. I don’t mind getting rid of it, so I started to look for a new or newer band saw. The band saw is the last tool in my shop I feel I need to upgrade. I don’t, and have not done resawing due to 2 items. 1- I work in pine and it’s easier and cheaper to just put it tho...

Just wanted to put this out there. I got a 5 ton AC system blower motor from Tom’s Mechanical a couple of months ago. I was going to build a dust filter system. 2 weeks later I found a RBI system on Craigslist that was really cheap. I got that one and now have the blower motor sitting on a shelf in the shop. If anyone wants it let me know....
