Good price for Powermatic 1.5HP bandsaw? - 5 replies
I have the opportunity to buy this for $200. http://www.powermatic.com/us/en/p/pwbs-14cs-bandsaw-1-5hp-1ph-115-230v/1791216K 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?

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...

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...

“Can I run a 3HP table saw and a 2 HP dust collector SIMULTANEOUSLY off of one 240v 50amp 10 gauge circuit?” Was wondering if this was possible and recommended?

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...

Is $1400 a fair price for a excellent condition used 2007 PM2000 with wide table?

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...

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...

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?

I am making a router table insert for a Ridgid R4512 table saw and was wondering what the best way was to cut out the hole for the router plate in it. If I make a template of the router plate by building wood around the plate, can I then use a flush trim bit to cut out the hole on the table surface? I am concerned that if I do this, the hole...
