dust control clarification questions - 5 replies
I just scored a great condition Jet 1100 1 1/2hp dust collector on Craig’s List. I’ve been researching how to set it up (I want to run ducts, not wheel it around tool to tool). A few questions based on what I have (and haven’t) found on my own: I’ve read a bunch about “to ground or not to ground” and I...

72 1/2" bandsaw blade... will 72" work? - 8 replies
Hi all, I’ve got an older Delta 10” bandsaw. Inside the door is the diagram of blades, part numbers, and the different radii the different blade widths can cut.

The deck is not beading...

Only problem is, for someone who has never used a dado, it doesn’t say WHERE to put the shims—do I put them between the outer blade and the first chipper? In between the chippers? If I need to use more than one, do i put them all in th...

Find Jocks near me? - 5 replies
I just joined Lumberjocks and am really excited about its potential as a resource for my woodworking as well as a great community of people who seem really excited to help and interact. Once thing I was hoping to get out of it (especially after I was looking how to post information about my shop… coming soon!) was the ability to find ot...
