Today I found a very lightly used 1 hp jet shaper in good condition for a good price. My plan will be to run our cope cutter on the shaper. A couple of days ago I actually bought 2 PM 3hp shapers to go with our 3 hp grizzly shaper and PM power feeder. I planned to run the stick, door lip and panel cutters on the 3 larger shapers and set up my...

Dynabrade 57015 - 7 replies
I am excited about our first DA sander purchase. I bought a nice Dynabrade one Ebay yesterday and now I am anxious to get the sander. We have a lot of sanding coming up and I think the DA sander is the route we need to pursue. I don’t think I will miss my electric sanders. We use Dewalt ROS and I have found them to be the best we have ...

So we have been setting up our 5 hp cyclone. It is awesome and will serve us perfectly. I used 6” galvanized 24 g that is very strong and great quality. The price was “almost unreasonably” cheap. I refrained from passing this source along until I received the product. Many times if it seems too good to be true, well it usu...

Sketch up crash course required - 9 replies
So I have resisted the idea of trying to learn Sketch up. However my upcoming commercial job will require us to build 10 work stations 6’ by 3’ by 4’ tall with 3 sides, a desk top and a ‘check writing’ top portion. The build will be rather simple, however the contractor wants me to forward my shop drawings to them...

I am now going to be in a pinch to get our 5 hp DC set up. I just sold our 2 hp Grizzly that has been our go to pillar for a long time now. I figured the sell of that DC would help offset some set up cost for the Delta Cyclone. The DC will be set up in a 20X20 Storage next to our shop so will not be the main shop area at all. So my prima...

I am building 10 workstations with 3 sides and a desk top. The units will be 3’ X 6’ X 4’ tall and I am purchasing 4’ X 12’ Stainless Steel...

Safety Speed Cut 3400 Verticle Panel Router - 8 replies
I bought this at a school auction today. It is actually in very nice condition, appears that it was not used much. I intend on selling this Panel Router and was wondering if anyone had any information about this type of unit or just how usefull it might be.

I have 2 brand new Lenox bandsaw blades on eBay for a very fair price of 7.00 plus 11.00 shipping. They are 93 1/2X3/8 and 93 1/2X1/4 both with 6 TPI. They are still in original factory packaging. The auctions end tomorrow. If they sell they should prove to be a good deal for someone. If they don’t sell au might just keep them and hop...

I got this old 2” stanley Chisel in a box of things from an auction I attended recently. Any idea of a realistic value. I am not interested in the chisel but it does look pretty neat. If I were in a stronger position I probably would not even sell the chisel just due to it’s neat vintage U.S. history. On Ebay the exact chisel i...

Bought 3 hp Grizzly TS on CL today :) - 6 replies
We were truly blessed with the purchase of the 3 hp grizzly cabinet saw. I sort of fell into the saw and was not seeking a table saw. We have a 3 hp unisaw, a 3 hp PM 66 (this saw is not in service yet), and a TS3650 Ridgid (1.5 hp). So I seen the 3 hp grizzly on CL for 300.00, but I totally ignored it because we have the 3 table saws alrea...

Motor is 1 1/2 hp single phase Leeson. We just love this sander. ...

Question for all of the Dust Collection experts - 3 replies
We got a steal of a 5 hp Delta cyclone from a school shop auction. Big upgrade over our 2 hp grizzly we use 4” flex hose with. At the school I was able to get all of the 8” dust collection piping. It is very heavy gauge metal. It is enough to duct our entire shop but I do not have any Wye fittings. I am not sure what to use. I ...

I hope I got the correct forum. I do custom cabinetry / woodworking for a living. Lately I have visited a few auctions local and have been purchasing woodworking machines, tools, etc. at very low prices and hope to re sell some items on ebay. I hope to sell on CL some, but other things are best on ebay or other site like amazon. So my qu...
