Electrical Help needed... - 9 replies
Today I attempted what should have been very simple. My edgebander needs air to run, but there is no fail safe on the machine so if it runs without air it just damages the EB. The EB is 220 single phase. The solution was very simple. I bought a pressure switch that utilizes NC and NO when air pressure is applied. There is a setting range ...

small garage sale score... - 3 replies
Found a woodworker garage sale nearby I managed to get 2 jorgensen 48” parallel clamps in clean condition for 30.00. The older fella had lots of other items but nothing jumped out as a big need so I left the rest for another woodworker to find. For me, I am happy with my 2 new clamps. These are the first Jorgensen clamps I have owned.

OFF topic stuff - 26 replies
Bought a 2004 F250 6.0 FX4 Crew cab in Dec. Very nice looking truck, I love it for many reasons such as the interior, large cab size, 4X4 which we need from time to time on job sites when rain slushes things up, it actually rides very nice also. I think it might go down as the worst investment I have ever made. I think I will loose the greate...

So I am looking to get another portable air compressor. I have burned out more portable air compressors since 2008 than I can really count. I am going for the best upgrade I can as I am completely burned out on buying portable air compressors. My next upgrade is going to be a gas powered wheel barrow style and will live in the back of my tr...

I have installed maxline airlines. So far I think I like it. It is flexible but does not bend easily since it is made of some sort of aluminum inner material. I had everything installed, air tested and looking good. Everything was mostly all fastened to purlins on the wall. When done I turned air compressor off, but did not relieve the air ...

what kind of air lines should I use - 26 replies
I just sold our old CNC today, now it is time to set up our new to us cnc. This cnc has an ATC which will require a reliable air supply. I am thinking of pvc. Currently I have simple rubber air hose which is reliable enough but I think I might experience some pressure drop over the run. What are all of the cool options out there.

Anyone interested let me know. The saw is clean, comes from school auction. It is single phase 3 HP. Comes with a Beisemeyer fence head and rails for 52” fence. It is however, MISSING, the front steel tube the fence rides on. The front tube could be easily sourced for this saw. Looks to be a very nice saw for the current bid price. ...

Growing Pains in the Shop - 15 replies
Not really a question here, but my body seems to have pains as I get older, I am 42 now wishing I could go back to my 30s. I began our business in 2010 and we are going strong and I love every bit of our small family run business. However, while in the US Navy in my 20’s I ripped my left should up while at Sea while being pinned by a wav...

Woodmaster / Belsaw as it pertains to business - 22 replies
Introduction: I began dreaming about a glimpse of what I do today back in 2003/04… In 2008 I found this site and have gleamed so much information from veterans on this site that it greatly shortened my learning curve. I am self taught and taught online, mostly from this site among others. I have never actually ever worked in a cabine...

Shop Heat - 41 replies
Any advice on shop heat. My wife and I are both wimps about the cold. We are in our first cold front, dips to 30 at night, 50 in the day. Not nearly as bad as our friends to the north, but too cold for us. In fact, we are inclined to close the shop down below 55 degrees. So just today I finally got my overhead roll up door installed, it w...

Our Google Plus listing... - 13 replies
OK, so as a small shop owner, we must be either good at or decent at a lot of different tasks. On top of purely being able to build nice cabinets, we also must be able to be good with the computer with our CAD software, working with all of the equipment in our shop from the table saw to the CNC and everything in between. One thing I am not t...

Need DC upgrade.... - 14 replies
Just more thinking out loud here. Maybe someone might have some great insightful information or advice on my thoughts. We added a CNC and now I see a DC upgrade in the future. What we currently run is a 5 hp Leeson (19 or 20 amps) with a 14” impeller. It is made by Delta. It is a Cyclone. Our old shop was smaller with shorter runs...

Solid Lumber Slab doors and drawer faces??????? - 44 replies
Just wanted to see what most here thought of using solid lumber for doing doors and drawer faces slab style. I have a customer who hired us on a frameless full overlay with slab doors. I had them sold on a Echowood laminate very very stable plywood edgebanded door style. It would have been beautiful actually. Their builder convinced them t...

DW 788 20" Scroll saw Auction steal :) - 7 replies
I have no experience with a scroll saw. But I know this dw788 has a higher retail so I assume it is little better quality than the entry level models. I managed to get this saw for 25.00. But how it worked was there were 2 of these saws that went back to back, they both had a few parts missing and so I was able to get one for 15.00 and the ot...

Got a CNC and came with a Becker Vac Pump 5.5 KW. The becker pump, I have no experience with, seems to have a unique sound to it that I am not accustomed to. But it just trips my 30 amp 3 phase breaker. A lot I don’t know, but what I do know as fact: - Breaker it is running on is a little older, could be a faulty breaker… ...

Our Techno LC 59120 is in production as of yesterday - 13 replies
Actually this morning we were able to successfully nest 2 sheets of cabinet parts without any issue. I had drawn 2 dressers for my daughters bedroom that the CNC was able to cut out for us. The drawers were not cut out because we don’t have a dovetail cutter for the CNC yet and since I hope the dressers will remain with my daughters lo...
