Both Sides - 3 replies

Drill Press - Jet vs. Wen - 10 replies

I am in the market for a drill press. I was originally looking at the 12 in Jet (JDP-12). It looks real nice with lasers, a work light, variable speed adjustment (no belts to move) and a 1/3hp motor.

Why can' I make square flat stuff - 7 replies

Electrical short - 5 replies

I’m not sure what happened. I plugged in my contractor saw, made a few cuts with no problem. When I went to unplug it I was these pics. The wall side has no marks or anything. There was no bogging or anything that would indicate a power drain. I didn’t see a flash (the plug was behind the saw and on the ground though) nor did I...

Not working right - 4 replies

So I don’t really have quality tools yet. I have a shopsmith and a router table top made of mdf. I was unable to get the bit 90 degrees to the table. Now I have an expensive piece of wood with a rabid rabbet and dado. I can deal with the rabbet since it is in the back. But I have got to fix the dado somehow. Can someone help me fix it? ...
