Well, not really, but hey progress is progress even if its slow.
I never planned to take everything apart and repaint. So I dismantled the hood and a few misc parts, painted them up along with the new dust collection.
Made a few rubber grommets to deaden the rattles.
The put it back together.
Added a 30’ lengh of 10-3 power cord, connected to a new switch.
Took on last look at old unreliable.
And set the new girl in her new home.
Attached the dust collection
I’ve now planed several rough sawn boards. The ability to take more than 1/16” is exceptionable. This one is so much quieter than the lunchbox too.
All that’s left is the extensions and i want to make a small box that fits underneath to hold any related items such as extra blades, allen wrenches and such.
Thanks for looking.
