« Part 5: Bearing Installation Part 6 of Jet JJ-6CSX series no next part

Took a long time to get to this point and I neglected to update the blog. However, within the last 2 weeks, I was able to make some great progress. Over the last month and a half, I set up an electrolysis vat using our large recycling cart, car battery charger, bunch of rebar pieces, copper wire, water and washing soda.

It’s not completely done but it is usable. More pics once I’ve completely finished the project. (don’t hold your breath though. Might be awhile lol.)

Great work, if it works as good as it looks I’d say you’ve got a winner!

How did you re-attach the depth of cut scale?

Temporarily, I have reused 2 Unslotted Screws for now. I will order a few soon. Frankly, the depth of cut isn’t an issue for me at this stage. I still have some tweeking (you don’t want me to twerk). For now, I have set the depth of cut to 1/64” via standard rule and a precision straight edge laid across the outfeed table.

I am in the process of making a movable base for this beast. Hope to have it done tomorrow. First time I have actually been able to use rough cut Red Oak. Maple cost more and I want some experience using SOMETHING besides popular and pine. Splurged and got about 20’ board feet of Red Oak when I picked up my new CL Planer yesterday.

You did a great job on that!

The electrolysis worked great for you… COOL, when you get the ‘hand’ of it!

Thank you the GREAT POST!

WOW! It looks brand new! If you were to say you just bought it off the showroom floor, I would’ve believed you. I love seeing tools restored
