Powermatic PWBS-14 Bandsaw - Can't get blade to track in center on upper wheel - 22 replies

For the life of me, I can’t figure out why I can’t get the blade to track in the middle, or even to the far right if I wanted it to. It bugs me that I can’t adjust the upper wheel to get the blade to track dead center like all the tutorial videos on YouTube (Alex Snodgrass for instance) show. The upper arm hinge looks good an...

Powermatic 60A with helical head 2hp 8" jointer for 1k. Good deal? - 33 replies

I just bought this and am having buyers remorse, probably for no reason. Did I pay too much? It does not look like it was used much and I picked it up from an elderly man. Came with a mobile base too.

Powermatic 60B 8" jointer - $800 - good deal? - 17 replies

I’ve working on buying this Powermatic 8” jointer and i’m at $800 with him. I’m going to have to rent a trailer and drive 2.5 hours to pick up. Is this worth it? What should I look for for red lights? Looks like it has some surface rust but looks good otherwise. Will this take a helical head? Thoughts?

220v receptacles installation questions - 2 replies

I have a dust collector, table saw and (future) jointer that run at 220v and all have protection on the motors and the manufacturers have stated that I can run them off of my existing 50amp 240v circuit. Since the total of any two machines plugged into this circuit (dust collector running + one 220v machine) that would run simultaneous on thi...

Powermatic 60 jointer built in 1997. $600 - 5 replies

This has a 1.5 horse motor. Looks in decent condition, but the price seems high to me. He’s come down to $600 now, but i’m still thinking the price is high for a 1997 unit that only has 1.5 horses. Thoughts?

Good price for Powermatic 1.5HP bandsaw? - 25 replies

I have the opportunity to buy this for $200. It’s obviously their entry level model, but it is a “Powermatic”, if that means anything. Good deal? Does anyone have any experience with this tool? Negatives? Positives?

Husky air compressor stopped working. Is this fixable? - 14 replies

My Husky air compressor which is around 3 years old stopped working in the middle of a painting session. I believe it froze up because it threw the breaker. I reset the breaker and plugged it back in, and it hummed, and it now no longer makes any sounds at all when I switch it on. I pressed the red reset button on the side too. I am able to ...

How to place 650lb table saw on mobile base? - 55 replies

I’m thinking ahead of my cabinet saw purchase and am wondering what the easiest and cheapest way of safely placing a 650lb table saw on a mobile base. I’d rather not purchase a chain hoist and I’m not even sure how I would attach a chain hoist in my finished garage. I know I had trouble handling a 200lb drill press so I&#...

Delta 17-965 floor drill press - $200 Craigslist find - 2 replies

I just bought this drill press, a Delta 17-965 for $200. Appeared to be in good shape. Came with a shop made mobile base which was a nice bonus. The runout looked to be about .002-.003 as expected. Now that I have it home, I am noticing that the up and down action is not smooth and is rather creaky in some sections of the travel. It’s comp...

Grizzly G0623x sliding table saw vs. traditional cabinet saw - 39 replies

I was initially debating my new table saw purchase of a SawStop vs. a Delta Unisaw or Powermatic PM2000 but have now widened my options by including a Grizzly G0623x slider in the mix. I like the inherent safety appeal and perceived ease of use the slider offers. My max budget is 5K no matter which table saw I choose. I don’t believe I ...

Delta 8" Jointer - Model 52-877 base - 2 replies

I am looking at a used Delta 8” jointer and the only model number visible is Model 52-877 which designates the base part of the unit. This appears to have a long bed on it. The specs say- Voltage – 120/240vAmps – 15/7.5PH – 1RPM – 5000 Does this sound like a 3HP unit? They are asking $1000 for it. Wo...

Delta Unisaw 36-L352 or Powermatic PM2000? - 55 replies

Delta Unisaw or Powermatic? Today, I can get the Delta 36-L352 for $600 less than the Powermatic PM2000. The Delta is intriguing at this price point, but the Biesemeyer fence on this seems to get not so favorable reviews. How does the Accu fence on the Powermatic compare to the Biesemeyer? This fence dilemma is what’s holding me bac...

Delta 36-T30 T3 Fence and Rails - Is anyone happy with it? - 4 replies

I’m seeing a great deal of negative comments on this fence on the inter webs. Is the handle lockdown really as crummy as they say? Is the construction shoddy, whereas the fence sides are not plumb or parallel to each other? I guess I have nothing to lose if I buy it from HD, but would appreciate any feedback again prior to my purc...

Refinishing 1996 stained built-in - scuff sanding to 220 ok? - 3 replies

I’m refinishing a 1996 built in that is faded. It looks like this built in was stained and then sprayed with a poly, varnish or lacquer. Not sure which. I will be spraying 2 coats of SW Kem Aqua Plus Surfacer primer and then two coats of SW Kem Aqua Plus white. I have been prepping the surfaces by scuff sanding with 220 to ready for prime...

1 5/8" outer diameter on Dewalt DWS780 dust collection? - 1 reply

It’s a 1 5/8” outer diameter on the Dewalt DWS780 dust collection pipe. Dumb question, but how do I hook up my wet dry vac to this thing? I can’t seem to find anything that fits the end of that other than the stick DC bag that can with it. Any ideas on how to hook up some DC to this thing?
