Topic tags/keywords: humor jointer clamp tablesaw sander

For tool head LJ’s here is some new acquisitions for my shop. There was a recent thread, “is bigger better” Well as you can see I have answered that question for me personally. Will be adding 2200 square feet, and going 3 phase. Besides a TON of minutia, here is the BIG list…. and of course… pics :)

‘merican made PM 66 3 phase saw with 54” fence. Vega EB 86 3phs 5’ edge sander with tables 3 sides!, CLAMPS, and go490 8” x 76” jointer. Not pictured is a custom made two router router table with 3 hp routers and lifts, as well as delta 3 wheel power feed.

As you can see the jointer has a leveling problem… but i think I can fix it ;)

are you going true 3phz or converter??

If you are going converter here is the panel I picked up cheaper than I could build it my self. All you need is to add a motor and off you go. I have mine wired up with a remote so I can turn it on and off from any where. here is a post I made after I set it up. By the way congrats on the upgrade. Let me know if I can help.

Shawn Thanks for asking… I actually followed that post with much curiosity. Fortunately for me it is the real deal. I will have my own transformer. So electricians chime in… I have done an update or two to my shop page… but a big update will be coming. I know as a pro, I have means, and motivation beyond the hobbyist on this site, but I like this community, and the mix of both it provides. So I will post the upgrades…. and tip some of my cards to the other CenTex LJ’s that might be on this site.

But the “Grizzly” Brass Badge is oriented properly! ;-)

3 phase is good when you get outside the common basic
machinery. Many cool and very useful machines are just
not made for single phase. If you’re going to build
frameless with any efficiency it’s essential, imo.

HM.. beyond keen.. Your comments have always been a great value to me. The key will be to align the badge to the table… problem solved!! :)

But, but, but Joey! Wouldn’t it be better to align the table TO THE BADGE instead of the other way around? All you have to do is move the jointer in a decidedly HorizontalMike, er uh Horizontal fashion, and then all is right with the world!

I agree HM but I am still waiting for the people from SS to approve any decision made about leveling the tool, for safety’s sake. ;) BTW you ARE correct about leveling the jointer.

Loren there is always the thought that the idea of Three phase was the inspiration of many cool and useful machines… P.S. Always buy used… (high five)

Three phase is the way to go. Sometimes you can get good deals because people don’t want to mess with 3 phase.
