Tools Forum: fixing drill press runout - 9 replies
I’ve done the searches for this topic and didn’t find help. So here goes. Today my buddy was over with his son to work on their pine car derby entry. When using the drill press it became clear that mine has a lot of runout. Even with a very straight bit we get a lot of wobble. I suspect I need to take the chuck off clean any debri...

Grizzly Maple Workbench Tops - 6 replies
Anyone ever used one of these tops from Grizzly? I am thinking of using one of these tops as the top for an assembly table in my shop, and to replace the extension table in my table saw. Do you think they’d stay flat? Any other concerns or comments? What about better sources?

Fantastic Quote from wifey - 3 replies

PowerMatic Model 66 Maintenance - 7 replies

I’ve been waiting to address this until I could get some expert help. Today I had a guy out from a mobile tool repair place (recommended by Eastside Saw in Be...

Mortiser Tables Generally Suck - 5 replies
When I was recently making Hayden’s Doll Bed I used my Jet Hollow Chisel Mortiser a lot. The tables that come with these things are horrible. The fence is horrible, the table is horrible, the hold down is horrible, and sliding the stock is a pain. Does anyone have a good design to replace this? I saw that Rockler has a table, but it...

Looking for Recommendations - 6 replies
In my home shop, I really need to keep air hoses and exension cords tidy. There are tons of retractable systems out there, but some can be really cruddy. I am hoping to get some recommendations for good ones. I prefer the really flexible lightweight airhose to the heavy rubber stuff.
|2418 days ago||
Today, after being inspired by woodworking podcasts and folks like you, I decided that I needed to tune up my Powermatic 66. I have owned it at least 6 years, and I’ve NEVER cleaned the inside or lubed it. I know… bad bad boy. So today I removed the fence, back rail, fence tube, fence tube rail, extension table (the black powermat...
